Lisa Wagner of Bukes Salon, Clarendon Hills, Illinois, created a breathtaking finish for her first ARTIST SESSION finish. Wagner, a world traveler, was moved by the architecture and culture in Russia, and used St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow as her inspiration.

Wagner created braids using Hairdreams extensions and wrapped them around a styrofoam ball that was placed on the head. Some of the natural hair was left smooth while other pieces were crimped.

"I am thrilled with my finish," says Wagner who secured her spot at ARTIST SESSION through an Aveda photo competition. "This has been an amazing journey."
