Shear Genius has always been the least interesting of Bravo’s line-up of talented people competition series–hair cuts just aren’t that interesting to watch–so changes were welcome. So for its third season, Bravo introduced a new host, mentor, and new judge. But Jacyln Smith’s hosting was never really the problem, and the new host, Camila Alves,… continue reading
For its third season, Bravo’s Shear Genius will get a makeover, as the show will have a new host and new judges. The only person who will remain is stylist Kim Vo, who joined the show as a judge for season two, and he’ll be joined by former Bravo star Jonathan Antin, who was followed… continue reading

Bravo has renewed Top Design and Shear Genius, the bastard offspring of Project Runway and Top Chef, but will make changes to the former.
Bravo’s Top Design ends tonight at 10 p.m. ET; either Carisa or Matt will win $100,000 and an awkward hug from Jonathan Adler.
