Paul, a musician and member of Chicago-based band Bora Bora was nominated to participate in the Desperate Measures contest and won a free professional makeover with Sine Qua Non Salon expert stylist, Laura Boton. Paul had been growing his hair out for months. He wanted to keep length, but have a style with more shape.

misd2To get started, we used R+Co’s Atlantis shampoo and conditioner to freshen and moisturize.

Laura then used scissor point cutting techniques to put in a square mod shape.

Using Bumble’s Grooming Creme, Laura was able to add definition, without weighing down his hair.
