evo and Cloud Nine were once again at the forefront of Sydney Fashion Week as they took charge behind the scenes creating some of the most iconic hair looks of the week. Here is our recap of the week, a sneak peak of the latest latest hair trends for Spring Summer 2015.
For the first time in Sydney Fashion Week history, Ten Pieces designers Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss took the runway to the beach. In a unique display of modern-day punk with that 'just stepped off the beach' look, mother and son duo, Renya and Aiden Xydis brought the location to life through their hair look.
”We wanted to create a look that flattered the sophisticated modern-day punk and sportswear of the Ten Pieces collection. The models were styled to look as though they had just stepped off the beach, with wet and textured hair. To create shape, we used the Cloud Nine Wand in the women’s hair,” Renya Xydis says.
A true family affair, Renya directed the women’s look for Cloud Nine and Aiden directed the men’s look for evo. The hero products used by the duo were the Cloud Nine Wand and evo's salty dog and love perpetua.
"Just like the collection, we incorporated texture and layers into the men’s hair, achieving a wet look using evo salty dog sea salt spray and evo love perpetua shine drops. Prior to the show, we also
prepped the guys by giving them fresh cuts at Valonz to help emphasise the effortless, natural style.” Aiden Xydis said.
In one of the hottest collaborations of Sydney Fashion Week, evo and one of Sydney's most renowned salons, Edwards & Co came together for the outrageously enchanting and ultramodern Spring Summer 15 Dyslexicola collection.
"Just like the collection, we wanted to really push the boundaries and be equally as daring with the hair. We decided to put our own unique twist on the wet look and sectioned off strands of hair from the front to create uniquely shaped designs on all 20 models. This striking and bold look perfectly embodied the playful nature of the clothes". Byron Turnball, Hair Director
Inspired by FKA TWIGS, Byron used the hero's of the show, evo gangsta grip and happy campers to perfectly craft the wet look that acted as the perfect compliment to the magical collection.
Cloud Nine ambassador, editorial stylist and hair directing extraordinaire, Renya Xydis created the perfect ponytail for Lee Matthews stunning Japanese Katazome inspired collection.
Designed for the individual who can cleverly mix proportions and textures. Pieces have an elongated and linear appeal,
referencing an oriental style of dressing and aesthetic. Looks swing from masculine to feminine with a relaxed sense of
‘menswear for women’ expressing a confident yet understated tone.
Renya wanted to create a look to complement Lee’s creativity and use of texture. “I love how Lee uses so many different fabrics, which really inspired me to create the lived in, slept in ponytail with a lot of texture. The look is relaxed and sophisticated to compliment the collection” she says.
The “slept in ponytail” was created using a sea salt spray (try evo salty dog) to prep the hair, the Cloud Nine Waving Wand to add depth, and a texture powder to create a lived in look (evo haze is great for this).
