  • Moroccanoil Launches the Dry Shampoo of Our Dreams

    For many of us, the wait for a Dry Shampoo that caters to both blondes and brunettes has been a  long one and with the introduction of the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo, the wait is finally over. The new powerful, innovative formula from Moroccanoil is designed to instantly absorb oil and product build-up without leaving behind any visible powder or residue.

    Featuring natural volumising and deodorizing agents, as well as a UV filter and a hint of Moroccanoil's signature fragrance, the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo delivers a clean, fresh, just-left-the-salon finish with every use. Specifically developed to address different tonality needs, the dry shampoo features two colour-specific formulas: one to preserve the integrity of light and blonde tones and one to maintain the richness and dimension of darker hues.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light

    To bring out the best in light tones, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light features subtle violet undertones to help balance brassiness.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark

    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.

    It's not just the tones that make this Dry Shampoo stand out from the crowd, this revolutionary product truly ticks all of the boxes.

  • 2016 Lakme Collection

    At Lakmé we are focussed on equipping colourists with inspiration, tools and the knowledge to excel creatively; we provide industry-leading education coupled with the highest quality colour products.  Luxurious colour with a unique heritage that is great value.  A focus on innovation, sharing inspiration and knowledge, and fostering a sense of community is at the heart of what we do.

    2016 Lakme Collection: Renacido

    Lakmé’s heritage, grounded in artistic tradition and ties with nature, is the inspiration for the 2016 collection.  At the heart of this campaign is Antoni Gaudi’s vision to look to nature for inspiration.  His view being that nature does not go out of fashion.  The colour palette was derived from imagery of Spanish architecture, art and landscapes; styled to reflect the balance and beauty of the Mediterranean character, designed to inspire and encourage colourists to explore and innovate.

    Artists don’t just take inspiration from one area. They live and breathe it through every facet of their existence and it comes in all forms from the world around them. Renacido is an exploration of an artist’s true palette, if that artist were based in the cities, mountains and waters of Spain. The tones in Gaudi’s art, the colour of the hills and the shimmer of the ocean were the basis of our creation.

  • Reuzel Australia Brings the Schorem Barbers Down Under

    From the heart of Rotterdam, Scumbag barbers Leen and Bertus hit Australian shores to bring us their Cute and Cuddly Creatures Tour. In a two-week long tour of Australia and New Zealand, the barbers shared their somewhat unconventional yet amazingly brilliant approach to all things business and barbering. While providing us with an insight into their world, we shared a bit of good old Aussie culture and gave them an insight into our flourishing barbering scene.

    Kicking things off with a bang, we took the renowned barbers on a tour of Melbourne’s top barbershops in a bid to showcase the different styles of barbering; the standard of which left even these great barbers humbled. Throughout the tour, Leen and Bertus visited many barbershops, giving them the ability to experience the Australian barber culture first hand and see how the Schorem and Reuzel legacy is extending across the globe.

    Reuzel Australia Schorem Barbers Tour

    Amongst parties, brewery visits, sightseeing, tattoos and barber battles, the Schorem Boys put on four impressive live shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. With four incredible venues and performances, each audience was given an insight into the spirt of barbering according to Leen and Bertus  An eclectic mix of classic style and boyish banter, there were no better people to depict such an interesting tale. Taking it back, the boys, mainly Bertus, the chattier of the two, gave us glimpse into what life is really like at Schorem. From chewing the fat with clients to the intricate detailing that went into the creation of Schorem, there was no stone left unturned.

    Reuzel Australia Schorem Barbers Tour 2

    From the outset, we were told that the night wasn't about the haircuts and any talk of ‘hair shows’ was forbidden. Leen and Bertus are firm believers that what they do isn't worthy of a show, all they want to do is share their story and passion for providing men with a place to escape, a place that brings back the essence of being social. The most basic ideal portrayed throughout the shows was that good old fashioned conversation needs to be at the heart of every barbershop. “Everyone these days is on social media, but to me that’s anti-social. Sure, people come to us for a haircut but its social interaction they need” claims Bertus. If it’s social interaction you’re looking for then Bertus is your man. The self-proclaimed ‘creative one’ immerses himself into chatting with his clients, and in the case of the Cute and Cuddly Creatures Tour, audiences of 200 plus. While Leen powers through a number of cuts on stage, amidst the jokes and storytelling Bertus is able to complete one. It’s clear to see who the businessman in the relationship is, making a truly perfect pairing.

    If you can DREAM it, you can DO it...What can we say, it's hard to believe where that little barbershop brought us,...

    Posted by Schorem Haarsnijder En Barbier on Sunday, 6 September 2015

    With the help of a few carefully placed props, a few beers and the hilarious improvisation from the Scumbags themselves, the audience were given the chance to experience that famous Rotterdam barbershop for themselves. Everything about the shows exuded authenticity, in the same way their carefully created shop and range of pomades do. In a room full of hairdressers and barbers alike, inspiration was rife, if not from the cutting, then from the passion that brought Schorem to fruition.  The inspiration of building success from something you love.  The word Schorem roughly translates to ‘assholes’ in Dutch, yet the dedication and professionalism this dynamic duo show is more genius than ‘asshole’ like. Leen and Bertus are the first to admit that they’re not everyone’s cup of tea but they embrace it. Their mission is to be the most authentic versions of themselves and hope that they inspire at least one person to follow their passion and love what they do. A mission that they have proven to be hugely successful in so far.

    Reuzel Australia Schorem Barbers Tour 3

    If you would like to extend your barbering knowledge and become a 'certified Scumbag' we still have some availability at our Scumbag Session education courses. Led by Reuzel Australia Ambassadors, Denis and Alen Celahmetovic you can learn the traditional and signature cuts as taught at the world-famous Haarsnijder Barbier Academy in Rotterdam.

  • Olaplex Repairs Kim Kardashian's Blonde Hair Damage

    Kim Kardashian's sudden swap to blonde for Paris Fashion Week earlier in the year had the world talking. Five months on, it's the integrity of Kim's locks  on everyone's lips. In what has to be the hair transformation of 2015, Kim went for a dark brown to platinum blonde and surprised us all!  However, the news that really shocked us was that her colourists performed this transformation WITHOUT  using the one and only proven form of blonde insurance, Olaplex.  Thankfully, Kim has now discovered Olaplex and  is loving the results.

     

    Kim's Platinum Hair Transformation

    Kim Kardashian Hair Transformation

    Kim's dramatic transformation was the result of a six hour in-salon session.  To perform a one-sitting colour transformation like Kim's is risky business. To maintain the colour for her month-long blonde stint, Kim underwent three colouring services which only added to the damage.

    After the third process, photo's emerged of Kim with dishevelled, dry-looking locks. Not long after this, Kim went back to her dark roots and although they act as a good disguise,  Kim has confirmed that her hair is in the worst condition is has been.

    In a recent interview Kim announced that she has now been introduced to Olaplex and uses it to help rebuild the damage caused by her harsh bleaching. She maintains that she has seen dramatic results with Olaplex and it's working to  improve her hair and get it back to it's once healthy condition. Kim suggests sleeping with Olaplex No.3 in her hair* and is seeing stronger, healthier hair as a result.

    Kim Kardashian Olaplex Hair Transformation*Please note, using Olaplex No. 3 overnight is Kim's personal tip.  Although our recommendation is to use for 10 minutes or longer, we have received great feedback from clients who slept with the product in overnight.

     

    Kim Karadashian's Damaged Blonde Hair Pre-Olaplex

    Olaplex Reverses Kim Kardashians Blonde Hair Damage

    Going from any colour to platinum blonde involves serious work and we recommend that changes like this be be performed over a period of time with regular Olaplex treatments during and in-between services.

    Celebrity colourist, Tracey Cunningham has a host of long-standing celebrity clientèle on her books, including Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian (and now Kim), has sworn to never colour a client's hair without Olaplex. Her Facebook page speaks for itself with the results she's achieving. As thousands of colourists around the globe stand by Olaplex, it's stories like that of Kim Karadashians blonde hair damage  that demonstrate just how important it is to use, not only during lightening but also as a stand-alone treatment for already compromised hair.

     

    Kim Reveals how Olaplex is saving her damaged hair.

    It's not just Kim Kardashian embracing the power of Olaplex, people around the world can't get enough of Olaplex and it's ability to colour and lighten hair without damage and breakage. Our friends at The Glow, Pop Sugar and Oz Beauty Expert have all jumped on board and are loving the results.

  • 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

    This campaign has been designed to reflect the diversity of the Cloud Nine styling range with each of the featured looks depicting a style that can be crafted using the entire Cloud Nine hair styling range. Unlike previous Cloud Nine campaigns, The Minimalist showcases looks that can be created using multiple tools from the hair straightener range, the curling wand range and of course Cloud Nine's signature heated roller system, The O.

    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. The film will make its début at the  Australia Hair Fashion Awards 2015, after cementing its finalist position in the Hair Fashion Video Award category.

  • How to get Voluminous Hair with Moroccanoil

    Carefully crafted to weightlessly transform fine hair from lifeless to lively the Moroccanoil Volume Series is at the heart of the full-bodied luscious hair you've always wanted. We're all about voluminous hair and with Moroccanoil it's never been easier to inject some much needed fullness and life into your locks. Here you will find out how to use the Moroccanoil Volume Series to enhance voluminous hair and get some insightful tips from Moroccanoil's Global Creative Director, Antonio Corral Calero.

     

    The Volume Series

    At the foundation of the Moroccanoil Volume family is the Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, which weightlessly sets the scene for body and movement. Next in line is the Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse, with no sticky-residue and enriched with added conditioners to improve the health of the hair, it really is the perfect styling mousse. The cherry on top and the newest edition to the Volume Series is the backstage Fashion Week favourite, Root Boost. Enriched with Moroccanoil's signature Argan Oil to nourish the scalp and hair this long-lasting spray fortifies and thickens hair at the root, giving every style full-bodied lift and texture.

     

    3 quick steps to voluminous hair

    1. Spray Moroccanoil Root Boost generously over towel-dried hair at the roots. Use fingers to massage and work product in at the roots.

    2. Layer in Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse from mid-shaft to ends for enhanced body and movement. To activate product, blow-dry in sections, lifting hair away from the scalp using a radial brush.

    3. Finish with a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment on the ends. To reactivate volume, tousle at roots with fingertips.

    Your Volume Questions Answered

    Global Creative Director Antonio Corral Calero unveils the the secrets behind long-lasting volume.

    1. What are some of the factors that cause loss of volume?

    Humidity and styling products that are too heavy for your hair are two factors that actually cause loss of hair volume. Also, over-conditioning your hair can result in less volume.

    2. Are there specific haircuts or styles that make hair look more voluminous?

    If your hair is fine, I recommend opting to take off some length because added weight, such as long length, can make the hair appear flat. Also, if you feel like you need something to lift your hair, adding some soft layers to create movement will you give you that extra height you're looking for.

    3. How can I create big, voluminous hairstyles if my hair is fine?

    It's all about the right products. Starting with a good base is really essential, so I recommend using Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner as the perfect prep. I also recommend using Moroccanoil Treatment Light to protect fine strands. Of course Moroccanoil Root Boost and Volumising Mousse are essentials too.

    4. What is the best way to blow-dry hair for a full-bodied style?

    I recommend using Moroccanoil Root Boost at the scalp to create a textured foundation and then 'rough-drying' your hair until it's almost dry. Afterwards, lightly smooth the ends out with your favourite round brush (try Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Round Brush) to tame and control hair. Another great trick to create volume at home is to use your fingers to flip your hair upside down once the hair is almost completely dry and use a large round brush to smooth just the ends.

    5. Teasing will create volume at the roots, but is there a right or wrong way to tease?

    Teasing the hair is a great way to create extra volume, but always use light backstrokes when teasing your hair. If you use heavy, short strokes, you run the risk of damaging and breaking your hair.

    6. What are insider backstage and red carpet tips for voluminous hair?

    The rough-dry technique - blow-drying without a brush, combined with the amazing versatility of the new Moroccanoil Root Boost, it's our secret weapon for great volume backstage. This season we created a modern 'old Hollywood glamour' style for the Jenny Packham Spring Summer '15 show at New York Fashion Week with a lot of bounce and volume. See a sneak peak from behind the scenes here.
