Bravo presents the first-ever "Shear Genius Salon" opening January 22 through January 24, during the 2010 Sundance Film Festival to support Locks of Love. "Shear Genius" judge, celebrity stylist Jonathan Antin, and Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso will be creating looks for the event's A-list guests at the salon located in The Main Event Red Carpet Lounge & Green Suite in the heart of Park City, Utah.

An educational video on how-to donate hair to Locks of Love can be found at www.nexxus.com.

Bravo's creative hair-styling competition series "Shear Genius" is back for its third season with a whole new look. International model and handbag designer Camila Alves makes her hosting debut alongside new series judge Jonathan Antin, celebrity stylist and former star of Bravo's hit series "Blow Out." Famed stylist Kim Vo returns as a judge for his second season, and new to the series, accomplished stylist Orlando Pita adds his voice of expertise as mentor to the contestants.

In the premiere episode, the twelve stylists arrive in Los Angeles where they meet new host Camila Alves and this season's panel of judges - celebrity stylist Jonathan Antin (star of Bravo's "Blowout") and renowned stylist Kim Vo. In their first shortcut challenge, the stylists must give unruly punk rockers a more polished look, with the brash Antin as their first guest judge. The competition gets even more edgy during the elimination challenge when the contestants collaborate with hot Hollywood swimwear company, L*Space to create sophisticated styles for a risqu� fashion show. Monica Wise, lead designer for L*Space Swimwear, joins as a guest judge.

"Shear Genius" is produced by Reveille for Bravo. Mark Koops, Howard T. Owens and Teri Kennedy serve as executive producers.
