  • Moroccanoil Media Makeovers

    On Thursday May 29, Australian beauty editors and media were treated to a glamorous session of one-on-one styling with none other than Moroccanoil's Global Team Educator, Violet Sainsbury. While educating each editor on the latest releases from the Moroccanoil range (Moulding Cream, Styling Gel, Heat Protect and Volumizing Mousse), Violet also styled each editor according to their personal preference and hair needs.

    Each session started off with a luxurious blow-dry, continuing on with an introduction to the relevant products suitable to the guests hair requirements. Curl Control Mousse, Frizz Control, and Luminous Hairspray were used as finishing touches so each editor could spend the rest of their working day with beautifully styled hair.

    Moroccanoil MakeoverGuests were treated to European pastries and French champagne while they chatted to Violet who further schooled them on the Moroccanoil brand and history while answering any of those burning beauty questions surrounding all things hair! Each editor was also able to have their photograph taken with Violet after the styling session and left with a bespoke gift bag of Moroccanoil products, personally chosen by Violet.

    Feedback from all editors was exceptionally positive. They left the styling session knowing more about the Moroccanoil brand and the products themselves. Having Violet educate each guest individually was highly beneficial and made quite an impact on a personal and professional level.

  • Grant Norton wins Men's Hairdresser of the Year 2014

    The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) were back for their 22nd year on Monday 31st March, continuing to shine as Australia’s largest and most successful independent hairdressing awards program.

    The industry’s best enjoyed a night full of hair, fashion and culture, taking time to appreciate Australia’s most talented hair, fashion, make-up and photography experts, as well as the best products and businesses.

    With lots of thanks to Cloud Nine, who acted as major sponsor, the night saw many deserving winners, each recognised and celebrated for their own individual skills and style. A big congratulations to all of the finalists and winners of the night. Cloud Nine also acted as category sponsor for Salon of the Year, and evo for the Excellence in Education category.

    We would also like to extend a huge congratulations the newest Australian Men's Hairdresser of the year, evo’s very own Education Director, Mr Grant Norton. Grant started his hairdressing career at the tender age of 14, working his way up the ranks from ‘Saturday boy’, to managing a handful of Toni and Guy salons, progressing into creative director and then making the move across to evo.

    Grant’s role with evo allows him to be involved across the board with both education and creative projects, for such a creative and passionate individual, it’s the perfect combination. Working on the floor at Boris The Cuttery in Adelaide one day a week, also allows Grant to interact with ‘real clients’ and keep his skill set current and at the highest standard. This certainly isn't Grant first time winning an award and we dare say it won't be his last. Grant's inspirational vision that saw him achieve this prestigious title, is titled The Campaign and houses everything that makes a truly amazing collection.

    The Campaign features varying lengths, textures and individual shapes, with underlying tones of anti-establishment. My inspiration was a simple and consistent military style jacket. In true military fashion everyone’s uniform is the same. But, unlike the military, hair is not dictated, in the Campaign, one shape does not fit all” – Grant Norton
