George Kot is an Abkhazian hairstylist, although it's really more accurate to describe him as a hair architect. Turning those lowly filaments growing out of follicles into intricate braids and bouquets of roses, Kot shows that Eastern Europe (Central Eurasia? It's confusing in the Caucasus region) is leagues ahead when it comes to elaborate makeovers. 


Kot provides video tutorials on his site of how to achieve his best looks, provided you have a mannequin or a patient friend with hours to spare.

Here are his finest styles, with instructions that hopefully make more sense than the Google translations of his Russian.

1. The Bouquet of Roses

2. The Big-ass Bow
