Blow Out

March 22nd, 2006 // 22 Comments

Watching Jonathan Antin takes someone with a strong will, and ours was beaten down by several martini’s. So thankfully, our cocktail free intern Meredith T. White, took on the challenge.

Snip, flip, man tears and a baby hug. Jonathon Antin is back for his third season, full of blow-drying sentimental montages of your favorite cast members, or really just of Jonathon’s well tanned forehead. First off , a few meetings, a chat at the therapist, a talk with good ole Rosie, another haircut then BAM, Jonathon was distracted by a baby, but I have to admit, the hug from the baby was actually pretty cute and he does have a 9 week old son Asher at home so, we’ll let it slide this time.

Moving on. At a fashion shoot Jonathan decided to add hair, about four feet of it and take off the clothing, much to the chagrin of the designer and photographer, who happen to be the same person, but no worries, he babed them out and the leopard print shirt wasn’t too tacky, or maybe she wasn’t even wearing it, the hair was too distracting. Next Jonathon was off to New York for Good Morning America where he frantically woke up stylist Jason at 4:29 am to do some hair and then still had time to fluff American Idol contestant Diana Degarmo’s golden locks for her premiere in Hairspray on Broadway. In the end after a few hectic speakerphone conversations, Jonathan completed the emotional rollercoaster that is his calling card, shed some tears, talked about himself and began yet again, another season full of great great hair.

    What a TOOL!

    What a clown boxer! This guy throws a fit and cries to get his way on EVERYTHING! what a baby!!

  3. Smart Chick

    The first season was great…After that, his ego blew up so much he is unbearable to watch. Sorry, he lost me last year when he had a hissy over his product line.

    This guy is such a closeted fag dickhead! I caught myself last season watching him, hating myself for doing so, but unable to turn away from the trainwreck happening before my eyes. I guess I was waiting for someone to finally beat the shit out of him and have it televised, but alas, no luck. Please someone take him out!

    Oh Bravo is the best! Love their shows. First Project Runway, now this.

    Jonathan is irritating at times, but I can’t pull myself away from Blowout. It’s a little peak into the Hollywood lifestyle in a somewhat real way. Every once in a while, we catch sight of some celeb getting his or her hair done. It’s fun to see all the drama that goes into having a famous hair salon. So many fights and extreme personalities clashing.

    I don’t want to see Jonathan crash and burn. He wants so badly to be rich and famous. He’s throwing tantrums, crying, and talking with his shrink. Wow! He’s throwing himself in the lion’s den, begging America to hate him.

    One thing I noticed is that Jonathan has the most normal-looking girlfriend (or did they marry yet?). The man is surrounded by some of the most beautiful women in the world, yet he’s in love with a very simple, cute girl who doesn’t even have fantastic or long hair. Ego? What about the titanic ego of Donald Trump? The Trumpster would never be caught dead with an average woman.

    Also, who would have known that Jonathan’s sister, Robin, is such a respected choreographer/dancer who put together the Pussycat Dolls?

    This season, I’m looking forward to seeing how fatherhood affects this guy. I predict he adores the baby. It’s a good thing he waited and didn’t have children at a young age.

    I think this season has to be staged. I don’t buy the designer/photog. guy giving in so easily to his freaky pony mane not dressed look. THe waking the stylist up in NYC looked staged too.
    I bought his conditioner and promptly returned it to Sephora-it sucked balls.
    His weepy drama is too much to take anymore, I am dunzo with this show.

  7. WiggedOut

    I am deeply suspicious that he wears a toupee…

  8. Rumor

    Certain parts of the show DO look staged. Or, they got into tremendous fights at first, but cut that part out and showed footage after everything was smoothed over.

  9. danny

    um ok what? worst show ever. he is such a fag, he makes me want to fucking die

  10. Rumor

    You know, I would probably find Jonathan unbearable also if I sat and watched the show from beginning to end. I flip channels whenever he makes me too uncomfortable.

    Still, he’s not the only person on the show. Remember last season when Jonathan got rid of that one cool-looking biker stylist who was saying inapropriate things and flirting with clients? It was hilarious. I want more of that.

  11. coochie mama

    He is so freaky, I can’t help watching.

    The facination of the abomination, I guess.

    Like a car wreck.

  12. ann

    This guy is a prick, and not even a very good stylist. He gives everyone practically the same cut and whenever they ask for anything that differs from that, ie finger-waves or up-do’s (like the fashion designer guy) he throws a fit and just does that one style that he knows. Plus, he cries on every show. What a wanker.

  13. tami

    so what if he is egotistic – he is freakin HOT

  14. NaughtyBits74

    He’s so GAY. I hate that show and I hate him.

  15. NaughtyBits74

    He’s so GAY. I hate that show and I hate him. And not because he’s gay, but because he’s just a downright asshole.

  16. ellen

    yeah ‘sessy’ the gf/wife is so plain. it does come as a surprise to me, too, i must admit.

    i love/hate jonathan. i think he’s funny but that valley girl/gay accent gets to me after awhile!

    ps what ever happened to kimberly??? i loved her lol the whiny pop-punk curvy girl who did shampooing at his salon?

    i also loved that biker guy. he looked like a hot zack braff lol wonder what he’s up to, too.

  17. paul

    I literally want to kill this asshole, will this dipshit please stop saying the word product. Sessy is a fag hag

  18. kykid

    His hairstyles are a total snooze. How can someone get so famous doing the same ultra-uninspired hairstyle on every single client?
    Let’s see some skill, some choppy short cuts! If I could just see one other haircut, I may not detest him so much,
    I too, can’t not watch, as in the car wreck theory. He is into the trend of talking non-stop about how busy he is, he is a hair stylist for Gods Sake! Not a damn brain surgeon.
    If he says “dude” or “rock ‘n roll” one more time I will puke.

  19. Sheri

    All of you that are bashing him are just soooooo jealous..I ama 35 year old woman who has NEVER gotten a great haircut…Yea seems to all you males especiallyy.. but I would give anything to have a haircut by him.He transforms people…that is even the little things that could change a persons life..I admire him….He is not a doctor but sometimes what he does for people is just as important..

    YES I THINK HE WEARS SOME KIND OF BAD TOUPE OR EXTENIONS, YES I THINK HE IS GAY OR BI – I THINK HE WENT FOR THE LESS GLAMOROUS WIFE BECAUSE HE HAS ESTEEM ISSUES. I DONT KNOW HOW THESE DESIGNERS, PEERS, ETC. DO BUSINESS WITH HIM. HE IS AN ASSHOLE 98% OF THE TIME. I THINK THATS WHY I WATCH. HE DEFINITELY NEEDS ANGER MANAGEMENT COURSES. YES WHAT DID HAPPEN TO HIS 1ST ASSISTANT KIMBERLY – SHE WAS ADORABLE AND I AGREE BRING BACK THE BIKER STYLIST TOO! AS FAR AS HIS GREAT HAIR STYLES, I AM NOT IMPRESSED – OR WITH HIS HAIRCUTS. WHAT MADE HIM WAS LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. RODEO DRIVE. AND NOT FOR NOTHING BUT HIS SISTER IS A REAL BEAST. SORRY!

  21. Ryan

    His overly calculated bursts of aggression seem staged to make him look less feminine.

  22. nnmre

    Yes, I watched again. I think I’m trying to figure out why people work for him or with him. I’ve been in this business for 40 years and would never treat my employees as he does. What an overblown ego. If I hear perfect hair one more time. I agree he does seem to do the same style one I’ve done since the 70′s. I also watch to see if I can learn anything about styling because there is never enough learning but haven’t seen anything I’m not or can’t do. How about you other stylist am I wrong? Would you work for someone like him even for 300.00 a cut? I’ve tried his product line because I’m always looking for something better but I wasn’t impressed.
    I feel for his son, he stated he spends one hour in the morning and one in the evening and he is doing all this for his family. I have found that children desire time more than things or money anyday. What he needs a business manager but I guess if he did what he needed their wouldn’t be a show. So there you go. I actually feel embarassed for him sometimes. Drama sells. Sad

    I too would like to see more of his other stylist and their cutting and styling. Cause from a few I’ve seen are way better than him.

    Anyway that’s my blog for the month.
