Hairpainting Dustin Heath, originally from a small town on the island of O'ahu. "Growing up, I was always told I was a dreamer, as I spent most of my time catching waves in the Pacific. Where I'm from haircuts start at $10, so when I told my family I wanted to be a hairdresser, they said I'd never be financially stable. so, I moved to New York, to show them with the right determination you can land any wave." -Dustin Heath.

Watercolor hair on Adi Eytan. A meditative process and one of my favorite journey to remove natural pigment and create something magical through chemistry. Color has definitely taught me patience, mindfulness, and to breathe through every step of the process. This process is always vulnerable for my friends because I'm removing their hair color pigment, which is why it's important that I make each one feel comfortable and enjoy the journey together. It's a journey one must be open to do before making the decision to bleach their hair. The ending is always rewarding 🙏 Films by Michelle Tsiakaros
Adi Eytan, 24 years old, lives in Bushwick, originally from Israel. Yoga and meditation teacher. In the past few years she has shifted from performance into meditation, which she defines as a personal transformation from the external artistry to the internal artistry. She never would have thought that coming to New York as an extremely ambitious and hungry dancer, will lead her instead into becoming a devoted practitioner of meditation that like to spend most of her time in philosophy study-groups and silence retreats.
