Leading the charge, the Cloud Nine styling team created three brilliantly unique looks that truly captured the essence of each designer’s collection.

    Creative Director Lauren McCowan added an effortless chic to Aje’s African inspired, ‘Married Adventure’ collection.  Wanting to create a windswept look with lots of movement, Lauren used the Cloud Nine Standard Wand and lots of evo salty dog and mr fantastic worked through to distress the wave.

    “The signature of the Aje girl is that her hair and make-up is always effortless – it’s the hair that everyone wants, that they can never quite figure out how to get. She almost looks as if she has woken up with it” – Lauren McCowan

    Cloud Nine’s award winning, Renya Xydis led the way as hair director for both Duvenage and Di$count Universe with her Cloud Nine tools and amazing groups of stylists. Duvenage’s colour-obsessed collection encapsulated bold femininity, with class and style, topped off with Renya’s ‘pretty punk’ styling. With punky fringes and luscious ponytails, Renya used the Cloud Nine Standard Wand, championing the Micro Iron as the tool she couldn't work without.

    MBFWA closed with a bang as the ‘Hip-Hop, Club-Kids’ of Di$count Universe took to the runway, each with their own outrageously unique coloured cornrow's, finished with the Cloud Nine Touch created by Renya and her group of stylists. The intricate detailing, vivid colours and flamboyant nature of the collection was the perfect way to wrap things up.

    “Di$count Universe is more than just a clothing brand, it’s a statement. I was inspired by their commitment to stand-out from the crowd and knew that a simple braid wouldn't be enough, we wanted the hair to have its own personality” – Renya Xydis

  • 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

  • evo hair for sass+bide at New York Fashion Week 2014

    With award winning editorial stylist Renya Xydis leading the charge, evo hair acted as the hair sponsor for the sass & bide autumn/winter 14 show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.

    The iconic Australian fashion designers, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middelton experimented with silhouettes, monochrome  and contrast for their Novatuer collection. Drawing on inspiration from Ernst Haeckel, the duo’s collection featured an abundance of intricate detailing and dramatic contrast inspired by his studies.

    Synonymous with the looks created, Renya styled the models with one of the biggest trends from NYFW14; the dramatized comb -over. Using evo, Renya created a look that was the perfect mix of long and short, up against sleek shine, contrasted with matte softness.

    My girls Heidi and Sarah-Jane delivered a spirited collection that inspired an asymmetrical hair style all about dramatic contrast. That mix of softness and severity suits sass & bide perfectly. This style is modern because it’s achievable: there’s plenty of attitude; it doesn’t have to be too perfect. The drama makes it work at almost any length” – Renya Xydis

  • evo Fabuloso Pro launches in Taiwan

    The evo team was in Taiwan once again in early February. This time to launch evo Fabuloso Pro at one of Taiwan’s leading salon’s, Visavis, one of the most highly regarded and prestige salons in Taipie, not to mention one of the biggest. Housing 50+ work stations, this truly remarkable space provided the perfect setting for harnessing the passion and creative flare, that was so present among those involved in the launch.

    evo rolled out two launch events, the first, a small private event for a select 50 of Taiwan’s well renowned media personalities, going through the ins and outs of Fabuloso with evo Asia Pacific brand Manager, Phil Taylor and International Technician Jay Kownacki.

    The second launch, the biggest of the two, saw 260 of Taiwan’s industry leading hairdressers and colourists come together and be truly captivated by Fabuloso Pro.

    Each given the chance to learn and interact with the range, their response was overwhelming. The launch was fast-paced and high energy, incorporating entertainment from a local dance act, of course with amazing hair (supported by the Eros salon artistic team).

    The week wrapped up with Jay, educating some 200 colourists in work shops across the county and developing evo's Taiwanese education team to ensure that ongoing education in the region is in good hands.

    "Asia is an exciting, emerging market for evo & Fabuloso Pro. The level of passion and enthusiasm our distributors have for our brands and education is only surpassed by their clients, the stylist and colourist. Next stop will be Singapore at the start of May. We can't wait". – Phil Taylor Australia/Asia Pacific Brand Manager
