Pitting Spouses And Their Mates Against Trained Professionals

Better Half was hosted by "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Susie Essman. The show pitted the spouses/mates of two trained professionals such as chefs, comics, party planners, fitness trainers and hair professionals against each other.

The professionals had just two days to coach their novice partner to take on their jobs and beat the opposing "better half" in a final challenge for a $20,000 cash prize.

Each week, three judges renowned in the featured line of work assessed how well each couple mastered their "better half's" profession.

Hairstylists Episode

In the Hairstylists" episode, two sought after hairstylists, Alma and Victoria, were given two days to teach their better halves everything they know about hair. Cut, color, and counsel: these women will turn their men into skilled stylists who must work with actual clients and prove to some of the hair's hottest trendsetters - Ted, Mark and Rita, that they're up to the cut.

In the end, both men were armed with the skill, the style and the scissors to shape even the most difficult 'do. One of these guys was left with tangled up in knots, as only the competitor with the quintessential coif could be named The Better Half.

This exciting hair show was aired October 31st on Bravo. Nothing was more exciting than watching novices learn to become expert hairstylists and work in front of three superstar hair celebs like Ted Gibson, Mark Garrison and Rita Hazan.
