OH. MY. HAIRNETS.
I’m continually in awe over how Week of Our Lives keeps us guessing, in so many ways that you can’t even guess. The guesswork is strong, especially from my fellow fans on the forum, but clearly our guesswork isn’t strong enough. And their use of practical effects is just sublime, doing so much with so little. Of course, we’re aware that WOOL is on a very low budget, so they have to do what they can with what they’ve got, you know?
Today’s episode was a doozy, since they had to film in a hair salon in St James Place, outside of the usual setting of Realsville. Nandi was doing her internship with a prestigious hair company that owns the whole place, but as it turns out, she went to the wrong salon on her first day of work, and Nandi didn’t even notice because she has a selective colour-blindness and it caused her to misread the logo. This salon wasn’t a salon at all, but instead a secret group of bandits who trained in the fine arts of scissor robbery. They were…the Snip Snip Bandits.
So that was already pretty exciting, but elsewhere in the city, Fergus was going for a special haircut for his audition to join that touring Swedish metal band, Turtle Explosion Symphony. They were scheduled to play at the No-Sense Arena, one of Melbourne’s most prestigious, but their bass guitarist had an unfortunate staircase-wedding-cake incident and was out of commission. Fergus visited a number of salons to see if he could match that iconic Turtle Explosion Symphony look, which eventually led to him a split personality because the hairstyles were THAT good that they made him feel like he was looking at different people in the mirror.
All I can say is that I want to find that hairdresser from Melbourne who did the hair style work for this episode, because wow, they were stunning. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
