Whether it’s Instagram or TikTok, our feeds have been saturated with all things Euphoria season two. From explosive clips from the latest episode to tutorials on how to do the Euphoria makeup looks, and how to recreate the iconic hairstyles, it really has been everywhere. One character in particular, despite her controversial behavior, is serving some serious looks—so here’s how to recreate all of Cassie’s Euphoria hair looks.

While Cassie’s judgment and behavior this season have been questionable—to say the least—her hair and makeup have been spot on. We’re still recreating her eye rhinestone liner every chance we get, and right now her hair is getting a lot of attention.

While some of the makeup looks and slightly risque outfits from the show might not be very wearable day to day—the hairstyles most certainly are. And while we already know how to recreate Maddy’s hair looks, it’s time to give Cassie’s a whirl.

Her many incredible hair looks are brought to us by Euphoria’s hairstylist Kim Kimble, and we’re starting off very strong with Cassie’s adorable bubble ponytail. This look is doubly perfect because bubble braids and ponies are so in right now. Thanks to WeThrift (opens in new tab) specialist Nick Drewe—and all the handy TikTok tutorials—we know exactly how to recreate it, and no you won’t have to wake up at 4 am…

First things first, you want to brush your hair and then tie it up into a high ponytail, leaving two front strands out.

Then take another hair band and tie it around the pony a few inches down from the first, continuing to do this until you’re left with a few inches of loose hair at the bottom of your pony. To create the bubbles, gently pull the hair between the two ties outward with your fingers to form a bubble shape. Cassie has about four bubbles, but this will depend on your hair length.

Drewe says: “Be sure to keep on experimenting with the space between the first hairband and the second in order to achieve your desired bubble volume.”

To fully recreate Cassie’s look, grab your hair curler or Dyson Airwrap and curl the two front pieces. Finish the look with a spritz of hair spray and you’re done!

The next look that has received a whole lot of attention is Cassie’s flower scene, where she wears her hair in curls, with two mini face-framing braids.

This look is super easy: simply curl your hair loosely with your preferred tool, remember to use heat protection! Part your hair in the middle, taking the first two sections of hair. Tie them into two tight braids, that fall around your face.

Use clear, small elastics for the best result.

To recreate that effortless nonchalance, all you need to do is curl your hair loosely, brush them out one set and then slide two cute clips on either side of your face. Cute, retro, and easy!

Showing the real reach of TikTok, Cassie used the viral heatless curling headband to create big, blown-out retro curls. You could also recreate this with the Dyson, viral Revlon brush, or use velcro rollers.

To use the heatless hairband, start with rolling it up with your front hair section, secure it to the top of your head, and then start wrapping your hair around the two sides: as shown but TikToker @erinduganjurchak.

After a night’s sleep—take the band out gently, brush the curls, and section out a side fringe—then add lots of hairspray to hold it in all in place and add more volume.
