Show Notes: “When fragility and strength combine” inspired Eugene to bring two opposing forces together to create this spiraling soft bun style. Use Wella Professionals EIMI Mystify Me Strong for a tight, sleek look and EIMI Dry Me Dry Shampoo for texture. Smooth out the hair using a ghd platinum+ styler before securing with elastics and twisting.

Show Notes: For a ‘supersonic ballerina’ look, work Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam into the roots. Secure the hair into a low pony and blow-dry to bake the style. Separate the pony into three sections, continuously twist and wrap before securing with pins. Mist with Air Control to finish.
