A hair styling icon, Vidal Sasson, will join the panel of judges for the season finale of Shear Genius. Here's an excerpt from Bravo's press release:

The godfather of hair and styling industry giant, Vidal Sassoon, joins the finale judging panel to name the inaugural winner of Bravo's Shear Genius on Wednesday, May 30 at 10 PM ET/PT.

The three remaining stylists, Anthony, the cool-headed stylist extraordinaire from across the pond; Daisy, the perky Miamian who has landed in the top two in almost every episode; and Ben, the rock and roll stylist out of Chicago, will face-off for the final and most challenging task yet.

Each competitor will be challenged with completing three styles that tell a distinct story â€" the ‘Nancy Kwan Bob,' a precision cut made famous by Vidal Sassoon; a style with color; and they will have complete creative license on the last look.

The winner of Shear Genius will be awarded with $100,000 in seed money from Nexxus and a chance to style hair for an Allure magazine feature.
