"Hair Battle Spectacular" Season 2 Debuts Monday, August 15 at 10 PM on OXYGEN
Eva Marcille may not have become the next supermodel after winning season three of America`s Next Top Model, but you have to give her credit. The girl, whose hair is now white blond, keeps on working, which is not something all reality contestant winners can say.
In her latest outing, Marcille, who played Tyra Hamilton on the The Young and the Restless, is the host of the second season of Oxygen`s Hair Battle Spectacular, which pits 11 of America`s hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design.
Tune in to the premiere tonight at 10 p.m. and watch as the contestants create outrageous coifs that resemble everything from Hollywood stars to hounds and handbags.

Eva Marcille: I have watched the show and pop culture has definitely taken on fantasy hair if you look at like Lady Gaga who came to an awards show in an egg with crazy hair and crazy fashion. That`s what we play off of.
And we kind of shed a light on what`s going on in our pop culture outside of what`s just simple and mainstream. That was so intriguing to me because I see everything. Being blessed to be in this business, you see it all. But fantasy hair is something you don`t see on an everyday basis, but it`s something that you want to know about. So that`s why I just kept tuning in.
What has been your most memorable moment from the show.
Eva Marcille: One of my most memorable moments from the show has to be the episode where we had drag queens. And what was so amazing is that every week we use female models to display the hair designs as well as the makeup and the outfits. But that particular week was the one week where we were allowed to use gentlemen. So, for me to have men on set was amazing, but they put on high heels. So it was an absolute riot the entire day and it was just amazing to shoot.
Since you yourself have been a reality show contestant and winner, do you feel like you were able to offer the contestants some advice in what it`s like to compete?
Eva Marcille: I was. Competition is hard. If you see a basketball player and he`s on the court and he`s shooting his free throws or his three-(pointer), it`s easy by yourself. But it`s hard when you have people guarding you and everyone else on the court. So that`s the same thing for competition.
These are amazing stylists, but when it comes to them having to compete in the amount of time allotted and you have 10 other people that are equally as amazing, it just makes for a crazy, crazy situation. And I know what that situation is like having had to live with 14 people and put my best face forward every morning in a strange environment.
