Blond has designed Edge Slick, the first refillable edge styler for Ruka.

Edge Slick is the first refillable edge styler on the market, reducing plastic consumption by 86 percent compared to competitors.

Ruka approached Blond to design a new baby hair styling tool that answers its users' needs and celebrates the creativity involved in afro hair styling.

The design incorporates an ergonomic paddle handle that allows the user to scoop styling gel – while the other end includes a comb and brush that clip together through a hole within the handle.

When the small brush and comb are worn out, they can be unclipped and disposed of, however, the handle can be reused.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design (consumer) category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
