In a small studio in Hollywood, high above Sunset Boulevard, Bio Ionic held a premiere. Artistic Director Vasilios Vassilakis’ vision was to create smooth, retro-structured waves combining two new systems— the Agave Smoothing Treatment and the Bio Blow Out. The result was met with rave reviews.

“Once we had tamed and smoothed her hair with Agave, we put in big sexy waves with the Bio Blow Out,” says Vassilakis. “We were going for Hollywood glam— and we got it, beautifully.”
