Bravo debuts first original series in HD tonight

Ending the long, arduous wait, Bravo HD delivers its first original series shot in high definition tonight with Shear Genius. Focused on the "competitive and creative" world of high end hairstyling, tonight's debut episode starts with 12 contestants hitting L.A. with the challenge of cutting hair blindfolded, and interpreting the hairstyles of cartoon characters. Sponsored by Nexxus (coincidentally also the official salon hair care of choice of the Engadget squad) the race for $100,000 and an apprenticeship starts tonight at 10 p.m.
