In episode 3, “Beauty Is a Trademark“, we get the highly anticipated makeovers for the girls. As done in previous seasons, series creator and host Tyra Banks choses styles she thinks will bring the contestants to what she calls “next level fierce”.
Things that happened:
- Cora got the first best photo featured in the house from last week’s pregnancy shoot
- Tyra mail #1 “time to capture the new you for the world to see. You are getting a trademark look. I am ready with your Ty-overs.”
- Liberty “voted red, so she’s going red”, and she’s the first cryer before they even GET INTO THE SALON.

- Rhiyan got an epic length weave
- Kyla got a chestnut dye and straightening done
- Jeana, who suffers from Alopecia, removed her wig
- “You take your tragedy and turn it into your platform,” Law Roach says to her. “They’re going to look at you and say ‘if she can do it, I can do it’.”
