  • Get The Look | The Disheveled Up Do

    Inspired by the architectural lines of the C/MEO Collective 2017 Resort Collections, Lauren McCowan and Isabella Iasenzaniro for evo created a modern and wearable look that highlighted the detailed necklines, collars and pastel colour palette in C/MEO’s ‘Momentum and Dimension’ collections.

    "We worked closely together to define the C/MEO woman and how we would translate this throughout the runway hair looks. With the collection being an abstract take on classics, we decided there was no more classic hair style than a bun. We worked to deconstruct the traditional bun in a way that was worthy of the catwalk but still modern. The end result was slightly disheveled but completely wearable, created with the magic of evo styling products.” - Lauren McCowan.

    Get The Look Here

    1. Damp the hair and spray evo salty dog throughout hair and brush through using evo conrad bristle paddle brush and roughly blow-dry hair

    2. Create a triangle section through the front of the hair using evo truman tail comb and clip away. Section out the two front sections and clip away. Pull hair into a ponytail, spray with evo builders paradise at the base and secure with an elastic

    3. Sprinkle evo haze throughout the ponytail. Divide ponytail into two sections, twist and knot. Pin ends into the bun and create texture using fingers

    4. Remove front sections from clips and tuck into the bun. Slightly pull out sections of hair around the hairline and shape with your fingers and evo builders paradise

    5. Undo the top section and sprinkle in evo haze and create texture with hands. Lightly spray pieces with evo builders paradise and tuck into the bun

    6.  Spray bun with evo love touch and rub through the loose strands at the hairline

  • Renya Xydis' High Tea

    Tuesday the 19th July marked Renya Xydis' inaugural  High Tea at the John Olsen Penthouse in the heart of Melbourne. With an outlook of the Melbourne skyline, the penthouse acted as the perfect backdrop for  for an afternoon of scones, champagne and Cloud Nine Ambassador, Renya Xydis.

    Haircare Australia Creative Director, Lauren McCowan hosted the High Tea covering a range of topics spanning Renya's 35-year-long career. As the driving force of creativity for her three salons, renowned editorial stylist and runway hair director, there was no shortage of talking points. With champagne and conversation flowing, Renya touched on all aspects of her career, paying homage to her family and staff (who she also fondly regards as her family), highlighting the important role they've played in her career.

    "My staff come before my clients. My team are number one, and I'll do almost anything to support them".

    When it comes to her team, Renya keeps it simple. She rewards loyalty, praises hard work and tries to provide the best environment she can for her second family. Loud music, laughter and presentation are Renya's key ingredients for a successful workplace.

    "I make sure I look good everyday. I put on a heel. I put my lipstick on. I expect that from my staff too".

    Renya Xydis Cloud Nine

    After spending the afternoon in Renya's company it quickly became apparent (family aside), that Renya's humble nature, kind heart and passion are the driving force of her success. Professing that it was only a few short years ago that she was passing pins to Eugene Souleiman at Fashion Week, Renya recognises that even if you're a salon owner or have 20 years of experience, you still have to prove yourself and work hard to get where you want to be.

    The High Tea attendees were given the chance to quiz Renya, paying close attention to her social media presence. With over 60,000 followers across her Instagram accounts, Renya treats her accounts like a 'magazine' - a place to share the life of  a 'travelling hairdresser'. Recognising the importance of social media in the hairdressing industry Renya uses both her Webazine and social profiles to inspire the industry and share not only her own work but that of her team as well.

  • Get the look | Androgynous glamour from Cushnie et Ochs NYFW 2016

    Inspired by the vintage glamour and decadence of a 1920's traveling circus, Moroccanoil’s Antonio Corral Calero created a contrasting look that was androgynous and modern for Cushnie et Ochs Fall/Winter Collection at NYFW 2016.

    Get the look with these simple steps and transport yourself back in time to an era when fashion was all about liberation, trying new things and having a whole lot of fun in the process.

    Recreate the Cushnie et Ochs look yourself.

    Cushnie et Ochs_1_200x200
    Step 1

    Starting with damp hair, apply 1-pump of Moroccanoil Treatment and Heat Styling Protection from root-to-tip to create the perfect styling foundation. Blow-dry straight and then use a comb to create a deep centre part.

    Cushnie et Ochs_2_200x200
    Step 2

    Divide hair into 2-inch sections and straighten hair with a Cloud Nine Original Iron from the bottom layers to the top.

    Once hair is pin straight, take a comb and brush the right side back following the shape of the head to create a broken wave.

    Step 3

    Spray the section from the root to the top of the ear with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Extra Strong to hold in place. Repeat on the left side of head.

    Moroccanoil Blow-Dry Concentrate

    Caring for coarse, frizz-prone hair can feel like a full-time job. Between the excessive dry time and effort to achieve a smooth look the process can be daunting, with little assurance of success.

    Formulated for coarse, curly and kinky hair types:

    • Provides intense frizz control
    • Facilitates easier blowouts
    • Creates a polished, ultra-smooth finish
    • Protects hair and seals shine
    • Increases softness and silkiness

    The NEW Moroccanoil Blow-dry Concentrate, the latest addition to the Moroccanoil Smooth Collection, is here to help!

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light & Dry Shampoo Dark Travel Sizes

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is a dry cleansing spray that instantly refreshes and revitalizes hair and scalp to extend the life of your styles.

    Formulated for all hair types:

    • Refreshes and revitalizes next-day hair styles
    • Facilitates easier blowouts
    • Instantly absorbs oil and product buildup with a unique rice powder-based formula
    • Maintains richness and dimension of dark tones

    Specifically developed to address different tonality needs, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo features two color-specific formulas: one to preserve the integrity of light and blonde tones and one to maintain the richness and dimension of darker hues.

    To bring out the best in light tones, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light Tones features subtle violet undertones to help balance brassiness. On darker hair, traditional dry shampoos leave behind a white residue that diminishes natural shine; however, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones is formulated with ultra-fine rice starches that break down and dissipate immediately upon application.

    The result: hair is left refreshed and volumized with a silky, just-left-the-salon feel.

    The 65ml Travel Size is coming soon - to register your interest, call Haircare Australia on 1300 437 436 or use our online contact form.
