    "The inspiration for the look came directly from tome’s collection, they have become synonymous with classic structure and exquisite tailoring, but with unexpected finishes and fabrics. the looks for the collection were quite ladylike, so we wanted to bring a sport luxe feel to the hair and a really effortless finish to offset the tailoring of the collection; maintaining that hint of the unexpected. An effortless sleek ponytail that brings out the shape of the face with texture and
    separation, enabling the focus to remain on the tome collection and to add a sporty edge to ladylike construction" - Lauren McCowan Hair Director

  • Cloud Nine Hair | The Minimalist

    Minimalism, the clean slate of fashion, the class act, the reserved sibling of ornamental trend. Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, wherein artists intend to expose the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms or features. This concept is about putting the power of Cloud Nine Hair on show with a clean, crisp background. No tricks, no distractions, the styling and silhouette are clean and simple to give way to effortless hair that every girl wants to have.

    The Minimalist features eight unique looks that capture the essence of simplicity whilst still giving a jaw-dropping impact. Reflecting the versatility of the Cloud Nine Hair styling range, each look relays the endless capabilities of the tool portfolio. The styles are fashion forward and bring runway worthy hair to life, yet are accessible to every women.

    Cloud Nine Hair

    Created in New York by Cloud Nine Creative Director, Lauren McCowan, The Minimalist encapsulates the true spirit of the fashion capital of the world. In support of the hero shots, Lauren also crafted a short film to bring The Minimalist  to life.

  • Hair Styling Tips from Cloud Nine

    Award-winning Editorial Stylist, Sarah Laidlaw our newest Cloud Nine Ambassador joined forces with fellow Ambassador, Teneile Robinson in Sydney to teach some of the household names of the blogging world the latest and greatest in hair styling with Cloud Nine.

    Hair Styling Tips Cloud Nine 1

    In an intimate look-and-learn, the group were taught how to create Victoria Secret Curls using the Waving Wand and the so hot right now; Wavy Lob using the Micro Wand. Sarah and Teneile also treated the class to a range styling tips and ways to get the most out of the Cloud Nine range; here are some of our favourites. 

    Hair Friendly Heat

    Sarah and Teneile outlined that being able to select the temperature of a heated styling tools is absolutely essential, especially when it comes to styling dry, damaged or colour-treated hair. In order to rebuild the health of the hair you need to be able to use heat protection sprays that won't evaporate due to extreme heats. When you style your hair at higher temperatures you're removing the water from the hair which means it struggles to hold it's shape for long periods of time.

    Keeping your Curls Curly

    So often we let curls drop straight after styling which really hinders the curls ability to hold shape and bounce. Sarah enlightened us that we need to become better friends with hair pins and spend the extra couple of seconds pinning our hair after curling it. The result? A longer lasting more curly curl.
