  • The Cloud Nine Touch Has Arrived

    The highly anticipated, worlds first automatic hair straightener, the Cloud Nine Touch was launched in Australia to the media on Wednesday 25th March with a morning of styling, experimenting and hands-on with the amazing Cloud Nine Ambassadors.

    Launched in one of our favourite locations, Pix Studio’s, the location truly set the scene for the stunning event. The beautiful white space was filled with stunning Cloud Nine imagery, a photo booth, delicious food and Cloud Nine Touch stations for the guests to try The Touch out for themselves.

    Cloud Nine favourites, Renya Xydis and Lauren McCowan took to stage to go through the functionalities of this revolutionary tool and teach the group all about the Cloud Nine Kinder Styling philosophy. They then created four distinct looks on different models using only The Touch, at this point the room was captivated by the ease at which each of the looks was achieved using temperature controlled heat.

  • evo hair for sass+bide at New York Fashion Week 2014

    With award winning editorial stylist Renya Xydis leading the charge, evo hair acted as the hair sponsor for the sass & bide autumn/winter 14 show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.

    The iconic Australian fashion designers, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middelton experimented with silhouettes, monochrome  and contrast for their Novatuer collection. Drawing on inspiration from Ernst Haeckel, the duo’s collection featured an abundance of intricate detailing and dramatic contrast inspired by his studies.

    Synonymous with the looks created, Renya styled the models with one of the biggest trends from NYFW14; the dramatized comb -over. Using evo, Renya created a look that was the perfect mix of long and short, up against sleek shine, contrasted with matte softness.

    My girls Heidi and Sarah-Jane delivered a spirited collection that inspired an asymmetrical hair style all about dramatic contrast. That mix of softness and severity suits sass & bide perfectly. This style is modern because it’s achievable: there’s plenty of attitude; it doesn’t have to be too perfect. The drama makes it work at almost any length” – Renya Xydis
