The amazing Renya Xydis and Lauren McCowan proved their award winning skills yet again at Mercedes Benz Fashion week for Aje, Duvenage and Di$count Universe with Cloud Nine Hair. Leading the charge, the Cloud Nine styling team created three brilliantly unique looks that truly captured the essence of each designer’s collection.
Creative Director Lauren McCowan added an effortless chic to Aje’s African inspired, ‘Married Adventure’ collection. Wanting to create a windswept look with lots of movement, Lauren used the Cloud Nine Standard Wand and lots of evo salty dog and mr fantastic worked through to distress the wave.
“The signature of the Aje girl is that her hair and make-up is always effortless – it’s the hair that everyone wants, that they can never quite figure out how to get. She almost looks as if she has woken up with it” – Lauren McCowan
Cloud Nine’s award winning, Renya Xydis led the way as hair director for both Duvenage and Di$count Universe with her Cloud Nine tools and amazing groups of stylists. Duvenage’s colour-obsessed collection encapsulated bold femininity, with class and style, topped off with Renya’s ‘pretty punk’ styling. With punky fringes and luscious ponytails, Renya used the Cloud Nine Standard Wand, championing the Micro Iron as the tool she couldn't work without.
MBFWA closed with a bang as the ‘Hip-Hop, Club-Kids’ of Di$count Universe took to the runway, each with their own outrageously unique coloured cornrow's, finished with the Cloud Nine Touch created by Renya and her group of stylists. The intricate detailing, vivid colours and flamboyant nature of the collection was the perfect way to wrap things up.
“Di$count Universe is more than just a clothing brand, it’s a statement. I was inspired by their commitment to stand-out from the crowd and knew that a simple braid wouldn't be enough, we wanted the hair to have its own personality” – Renya Xydis
