THE SHOW: Dannijo

THE HAIR: Sarah Potempa turned the ballerina bun on its head with a mohawk of messy buns. She used hairsprays to pull the hair back into 6 ponytails along the center. She alternated using her Wrap Up or long and short hair to twist the tails into buns, leaving the ends out for added texture. Potempa then pinned the buns to the head and slicked the sides with a water-based hair gel, finishing the look with a blast of hairspray.

THE MAKEUP: Katie Hughes brought out the bronze in the boxing ballet dancers by first dusting a bit of brown eye shadow on the lid. She then lined the bottom lashes with Butter London’s Wink Eye Pencil in Twigged before swiping on a few coats of the brand’s mascara on the lashes and brows to fill them in. The face was fresh with a little contouring, using the brand’s Cream Bronzer in the upcoming Bit Faker. Hughes finished with the Hydrating Balm to give the girls a dewy finish, similar to a post-workout glow.

THE MANI: Hughes create a gradient mani with a layer of the band’s Posh Bird sponged onto a layer of the new nail lacquer in Goss for a metallic finish.
