Hair Battle Spectacular, hosted by actor and model, Eva Marcille (America’s Next Top Model), pits 10 of America’s hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design. Part sculpture and part pop art, fantasy hair has become part of mainstream pop culture through icons such as Lady Gaga, Nikki Manaj and Rihanna. Each challenge requires contestants to create outrageous coifs that resemble everything from Hollywood stars to hounds and handbags. The stylists then enter the ring to bring the drama and present their hair creations in a high octane and stylized performance. After each challenge, the judges - award-winning fantasy hair designer Derek J, celebrity stylist Taylor Jacobson ("The Rachel Zoe Project") and a rotating guest judge - critique the stylists on creativity, execution and overall presentation. In addition to blow-by-blow drama in the arena, there is also the day-to-day drama between the cohabitating stylists who fight each week to stay in the game and win the ultimate prize of $100,000.
