Mel has no problem taking huge risks on season 10 of ‘Face Off’ — and this week is no different. Watch an exclusive sneak peek here!
Mel Licata, 26, is ready to create an epic Cyclops monster — and to do so, she’s channelling one of the most famous movie characters ever. In this exclusive Face Off clip, Mel explains that she’s going to attempt to place a bald cap on her model, then pull through his real hair to create a mohawk, just like the famous like Dick Smith did in Taxi Driver. So, can she pull it off?

“Now Dick Smith is one of the most best makeup artists of all time and I’m me, but hey, how hard can it be?” Mel says in the clip. “So, I start pulling out little hairs, and its looking horrifying.” At first, yes, it’s not looking so good, but after she makes a change, she realizes what does work. “I decide to cut a center line down and pull my hair and I actually think it could work if I did some break up on the side!”
“You look so awesome with a mohawk,” Walter tells her while working on his own piece. And then Mel tells him that she actually used to have one. “You were that weird scenester kid?”
“No, I was that weird scenester adult; this was like two years ago,” Mel says — and with that, we get a throwback pic of Mel and she is rocking that mohawk! “It was amazing!”
The episode is appropriately titled “Keep One Eye Open;” The artists must create their own Cyclops monster, straight out of Greek mythology. Special Guest is Douglas Smith (Percy Jackson).
Tune in to Face Off Wednesday at 9PM on SyFy!
