Roshumba Williams Wants To Pull Out Her Own Hair At Times

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Judging hairstylists for a TV show can make you want to pull out your own hair at times.

Just ask model Roshumba Williams. She’s one of the judges of Tease, a new game show that pits aspiring hairstylists against each other to see which was is a cut above the others.

Roshumba is one of three judges – and the only woman – and says she’s less interested in the haircut and more interest in how the stylist interacts with the person whose hair is being cut.

That’s important. She says she’s seen hairstylists who know all sorts of blow drying tricks and how to work the audience but treat the person who’s hair they’re cutting as just a mannequin.

Although she’s seen some impressive styles while filming the show, Roshumba says it’s been pretty emotional at times, such as when one of the hairstylists falsely claimed he knew how to cut African-American hair.

She says the stylist practically butchered the ’do of a woman who had worn her hair in braids for 20 years and she felt so bad that she still tears up when she remembers the woman’s reaction at the final cut.

Tease, which is hosted by Lisa Rinna, debuts January 10.
