Haircare Australia

  • Haircare Australia; Building a New Future

    Founded by a hairdresser, for hairdressers, Haircare Australia is an internationally renowned brand that continues to flourish at the forefront of our progressive, dynamic, and ever changing industry. And with a brand new, purpose built facility that opened its doors in May 2016, Haircare Australia continues to be a cut above the rest.

    The new Haircare Australia Head Office represents 40 years of hard work, risk and innovation. Geoff and Jan Gauvin started Haircare over 4 decades ago, seeing an opportunity to offer a salon-only brand, packing orders at night while working in a professional salon during the day. Never steering from their original purpose – to put salons first, this ethos is at the heart of Haircare Australia. A true family affair, sons, Brad, Garth and Ward Gauvin are all heavily involved in the business and have helped to progress the company across Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

    The Gauvin’s are firm believers in hard work and have always showcased a pioneering spirit, which didn’t stop with the development of the new facility. The state-of-the-art structure brings with it a semi-automated warehouse, conveyor system, wireless scanning and stock control – generating greater visibility across the business. Haircare Australia also now has the ability to have four different education courses running simultaneously – colour workshops, lectures, shows and hands on sessions. The multi-use space is rife with creative spaces, collaborative and breakout areas to encourage collaboration and fresh thinking in every aspect of life for the 100 employees based at Head Office.

    “There have been so many people, both staff and clients, who have contributed to Haircare and supported our growth. This is our way of giving back; providing a great work environment for all our staff and state of the art training facilities to all our clients. . It’s an opportunity to show how serious we are and that we’re really investing in what we’re doing,ot to mention, a great place to bring international guests and our core Australian customers. It’s a multi-use space, close to both the city and the airport, we have over 1000m2 in offices, 500m2 in education facilities and 4500m2 of warehouse space.We managed to move a team of 100 staff, 3 offices, 6 warehouses and a cash and carry - all in four weeks, without closing for a single day. 6,000 pallets were shifted during the move. That’s got to be some kind of record!” – Garth Gauvin.

    As Haircare Australia embarks on its next chapter, it comes with a revived brand direction representing a new era for the company. The branding is strong, simple and dynamic with a classic aesthetic, the perfect commendation of everything Haircare Australia stands for. Haircare Australia will continue to innovate and invest in its staff, clients and brands to achieve the goals Geoff and Jan started out with when they first opened the doors of Haircare Australia those 4 decades ago.

  • Moroccanoil Editorial Stylist Peter Gray

    With a spectrum of interest and imagination far broader than the editorial stylist label– Peter Gray is recognised by not only his lightness of touch with hair but his depth of personality and perspective, writes INSTYLE's Cameron Pine.

    In 2012 I met Peter Gray in Paris. He’d just completed a massive campaign job for L’Oréal Professionnel, and with brands throwing contracts at him you wonder why he hasn’t been stitched up as a Global Creative Director for any of our leading global powerhouses. It is what Peter hasn’t accepted that makes him so interesting and he has the editorial world lining up for more. The truth is, back when working on this 2012 released global campaign, L’Oréal Professionnel wasn’t convinced of his work and vision, being so different to anything they had ever done before, but in the end they loved it, his hair ‘dresses’ campaign became a global focus for the brand and rather than take on an exclusive role with the leading company, Peter has continued to manifest and weave his style across the globe – one that now lets him arrive at a non-exclusive contract with Moroccanoil.

    “It takes huge balls on a companies behalf to say ‘we love what you do and we are not going to constrict you’. It allows me to bring the best of all the brands I’ve worked with over the years,” Peter said. he no doubt cites this relationship as a very precious one. His ‘work’, despite him making it sound like it is far from it, transcends the countless VOGUE covers from advertising, editorial, session and custom projects as interesting as his personality. First and foremost Peter has no ego, he’s too tapped into external intelligence to make hairdressing just about him – his work and persona speak for itself. It’s hard not to crush on this severe state of open-mindedness for a hairdresser of his calibre.

    Moroccanoil Editorial Stylist Vogue China

    Peter Gray for Vogue China

    Present at Hair Expo exclusively for Moroccanoil, Peter’s ‘session editorial’ bunch were a very diverse mix of stylists all looking for the session editorial zeitgeist from a man of many talents. While at Hair Expo, Peter also formed part of the Global Morph show featuring Sharon Blain, Tracey Hughes and Lucie Doughty. Following on from Morph Peter presented a six model collection for Moroccanoil where the less than a dozen guests were able to stay, interact and produce a live photo shoot.

    “I want to get people involved and reach people again in a genuine way rather than in that mass market way,” he said. “It’s important to make ourselves think again and create an environment where people can interact and share the accidents, the ‘happy’ accidents,” Peter said. Having worked with so many brands from the Aveda tribe where the socio-political aspect of the brand is just as important as the skill to brands that are all about shifting as many SKU’s as possible, right down to the small brands – it’s perhaps Peter’s perspective and the way he looks for the life in others that make him so valuable. Not only does his portfolio of work from Hermes to VOGUE China and back to his creative roots again speak for itself, the refreshing part is that Peter speaks for hairdressers and creatives – finding talents and interesting people that contribute to the greater good everywhere he goes. “People ask me sometimes ‘where does the creativity come from’. Everyone is creative but it’s about how interested you are in what you’re doing that determines this.”

    “I work in fashion, it’s ageist, sexist and sizest. I loved a recent job where I worked with a transsexual person – a size 12 Russian girl that was really about pushing the boundaries.” Gray has worked with With a spectrum of interest and imagination far broader than the session stylist label – Peter Gray is recognized by not only his lightness of touch with hair but his depth of personality and perspective, writes Cameron Pine. The Gray Scale an 87 year old model, a scientist and everything else you can imagine and what he really wants to push is the aspect of inclusivity in fashion and hair - he believes there should be no stereotype. He has also been working on Noise shows which have become big in the UK, Richard Ashforth, Peter and the guys from X-presion all form a very ‘loose partnership’ and really it’s just about creativity. Noise was once a year but now it’s “out of control” with Peter and the gang pulling huge venues and crowds on a regular basis. Peter’s an advocate for making hairdressing more accessible and cooler, “one particular model was surprised I asked her to speak on stage but I wanted her to share who she is and that she’s not plus size to me, she’s normal,” Peter said.

    Peter Gray for Another Man

    Peter recently worked with a young designer, Demetra from Sydney while on his visit. He’s really obsessed with working with people who do something different in the locales he visits. Demetra is 23 years old and Peter says having worked with McQueen, she is giving this fashion queen literally a run for her money. “She’s putting images of Syrian refugees on her garments, everything she is doing is different.” Peter said. For more than 17 years (of his 30 in the industry) his published work is all shot by a photographer called Sunsbo – Peter admits that he has had a relationship as a photographer’s hairdresser and not a stylist’s hairdresser. He’s like a vampire to the unordinary and the unusual that a lot of hairdressers would bypass to stay on track to their ‘type of work’ or a certain level of notoriety. But for this man it’s about developing his own sense of dexterity and own sense of fashion. “You know what hairdressing can be like, it can be a little cheesy, can’t it?” he said. For Peter there’s literally no grey area, no dark side of his art, just an open mind primed for exploration and further satisfaction in the areas in which he lives. His advice to other hairdressers? To look at photographers and photography and the history of fashion. He says to try and steer clear of fashion mags. “I feel like it’s a toxic virus that if you start looking at what’s around now you think your work needs to look like someone elses,” Peter said.

    Wise words from a man that is not just about the still image. He’s also in the film world, having done ‘stuff’ with Deborah Milner. After being at McQueen for 17 years, she is now writing and directing films. “Social media for me is more about self-aggrandising
    than it is about connection. It’s not my scene at all. I’m a back screen boy. Once I’m on a shoot I’m not a platform artist and I’m not the best on stage but I always focus on retaining my own voice, I just don’t have that ‘showiness’ for platform,” he said. Weaving in and out of creativity, a lot of people in an industry like hairdressing say they are creatives but as Peter points out, they are really just towing the line and to this day the most exciting creative process for Peter is still pulling the kit out and seeing what he is going to create – think Picasso and Frances Bacon. On a shoot he is in his element and back when he worked at Sassoon’s he says he was ‘rubbish’. I did my job but I was slow and wanted to create. “I can thank Simon Ellis (a Schwarzkopf hairdresser also in town for Hair Expo) for getting me into session hairdressing early,” Peter said.

    Moroccanoil Editorial Stylist Vogue Mexico
    Peter Gray for Vogue Mexico

    He was allowed to be himself early on in the piece too, Peter was lucky to grow up with an eccentric academic of a mother. “I was wearing velvet green flares at seven years old. I loved going to the salon with her but I never did hair. I also used to love going to the barbershop with my Grandad – I admire the precision of a barbershop but I love the flamboyance of editorial.” Growing up in Zimbabwe probably also had a lot to do with it – Peter was super out there with a crazy fashion sense before moving to London at 21 and Manchester in the late 80s. “It was the summer of love where teen music videos made their way in and indie was a real thing,” he said. The allure of the disco ball and the daring side of those who like to dance the night away, Peter exposed himself to skills you couldn’t learn ina classroom. He says to this day that it was drag queens, Eurasia and working with Andy Bell that got him into fashion and now you can say that he has become a teacher, a collaborator, worked on product development, consultancy and worked in a six floor Sassoon salon, all seemingly in his spare time.

    It’s true that hairdressing is a playing field of what Peter says are tree huggers, thugs, animated figures and sometimes angry environmentalists or perhaps that’s just the psyche Peter gets into when he reads mostly autobiography’s and not fashion magazines or online forums like many hairdressers. Blessed to have a home and exist in all three cities of London, New York and Toronto, Peter lovesto work all over the place and be in the best areas when he is there. In New York he is on 37 between eight and nine – an old garment district, yet he loves the dynamism. He also lives in Kensington in Toronto which is like Camden was 15 years ago in London – he’s at the epicenters of creative expression and this is reflected in his work. His work is truly extraordinary and never boring – from larger than life shapes to completely customized texture, I don’t think anything he creates has ever been seen before. It seems to have a lot to do with the fact that he has no plan at all. “You paddle out and you paddle like hell. Sometimes it’s flat and sometimes there’s amazing waves and you get out past second break.” This was just one of the many amazing life analogies that came to Peter while he was on vacation in Hawaii. Just like theinspiration he gained while walking through Brunswick street in Melbourne during Hair Expo Peter says, ‘It’s good to see where the real people are.’ “We get five year plans drummed into us – ‘you have to be successful in five years or you’ll be a failure’.

    Work with whoever you want to work with. Life is not a series of images in a book.” Fighting for individuality and injecting a sense of intelligence into hairdressing, Peter is calm, intelligent but fiercely aware of his place and everything he touches seems to evolve. He’s the man that will do a show with 25 young designers and discover before anyone else that 10 of them are world class.

  • Get The Look | Textured Elegance

    The hair look for the Aje 2016 Resort Collection show demonstrated an effortless exploration in bringing out the natural texture of each girls hair, to bring out their individuality and beauty while still keeping the nonchalant elegance that embodies the ‘Aje girl’. Lauren McCowan fashioned fresh hair with movement and soft texture detailed out by applying Moroccanoil Treatment through the hair for separation.

    “Whenever I work with Aje as hair director, I always take inspiration directly from the collection and the brand itself - they are the masters of dishevelled elegance, and their ability to make the most embellished and structured pieces meld with chic nonchalance means endless inspiration when applying those ideas to hair. Always a pleasure.”Lauren McCowan

  • Get The Look | Cloud Nine Tools

    Using the Cloud Nine Original Iron and  Micro Wand, Cloud Nine Ambassador, Renya Xydis creates two opposing, yet harmonious looks for the KitX Resort Collection.  The Original Iron was used to create a sleek androgynous look perfectly juxtaposed by wild, Helmut Newton inspired curls created with the Micro Wand.

    ”We wanted to create two looks that were completely different, yet worked so beautifully together. You have these big, untamed curls created with the Cloud Nine Micro Wand and then this straight and structured look created with the Cloud Nine Wide Iron. The two together, especially side-by-side work in perfect harmony with the clothes.” – Renya Xydis.

    Learn how to recreate the looks from KitX's show with the Cloud Nine Tools here.

    Sleek & Straight

    Step 1 - UC 1. Prep hair with evo salty dog salt spray concentrating on the roots and crown area. Blow dry the hair smooth in sections using a round ceramic brush. Focus on lifting at the roots to create volume around the crown.
    Step 2 - UC 2. Avoiding the top section, smooth hair with the Cloud Nine Wide Iron set at 175 degrees. Spritzing each section with a mist of evo love touch shine spray.
    Step 3 - UC 3. Take the top section of the hair and clip it out of the way, apply evo gangsta grip boning resin to the first side section using a tint brush. Use a wide-tooth comb like evo roy wide-tooth comb to comb the hair into place, repeat on the second side.
    Step 4 - UC 4. Remove the top section and apply evo gangsta grip bonding resin through the top of the head, again, combing with evo roy, retaining volume and lift through the crown. Clip each section into place and diffuse rotating hot/cold, hot/ cold to set the gel. Once dry, remove clips.


    Untamed Curls

    Step 1 - SS 1. Spray the hair with a light working hairspray like evo builders paradise and use the Cloud Nine Micro Wand to curl small sections of hair at a time. Pin each section to cool and set. As you move around the head, alternate the direction of the curls by wrapping the hair over and then under each time.
    Step 2 - SS 2. Once every section has been curled, spray with hairspray to set. Once all the curls have completely cooled, remove each pin, loosen with your fingers.
    Step 3 - SS 3. Comb through the curls with a wide tooth comb and style using your fingers for maximum volume.

  • evo salty dog, the Best Salt Spray.

    Our favourite salt spray, evo salty dog takes out the top spot in Nylon Magazines Beauty Hit List as the Best Salt Spray of 2016! Here are some of our favourite ways to use evo salty dog to get the perfectly effortless hair - just in time for summer.

    1. If it’s volume at the roots you’re after - spray evo salty dog at the roots before a blow-dry and dry your hair upside down.

    2. For messy texture, you can spritz evo salty dog into dry hair and simply scrunch it.

    3. If it's year-round beach hair you're looking for.... simply curl your hair with a wand like the Cloud Nine Waving Wand, spray salty dog in and then comb your hair with a wide tooth comb and leave it to dry naturally.

    4. To create a natural wave in your hair without having to curl it before hand,  spray evo salty dog  into damp hair and then twist up into a high topknot and dry with a blow-dryer until dry. Release the top knot and shake your hair out and you will have perfect beach hair with little to no effort.

    5. If your hair is already dry and you just want a bit of a wave through the ends, spray the mid-lengths and ends of your hair with evo salty dog and do a tight plait before going to bed. Let it dry overnight and in the morning comb it out, giving you beautiful beach waves through the ends.

  • Salon Feature: Maurice Meade

    Maurice Meade has the secret to success… teamwork!

    Maurice is the creative and Rosemary is the business brain. And they don’t leave their kids behind either – with three involved on the floor, in marketing and payroll. Although 42 years in the game, there’s nothing old fashioned about Maurice Meade. Blending luxurious, funky and edgy, it’s a place where clients go to treat themselves.

    Embrace your individuality, at Maurice Meade.

    Claire, tell us about Maurice Meade philosophy.

    “With 42 years under his belt, Maurice is what makes this brand so special. He knows all of the 150 staff names, as well as their mother’s names. People are the heart of Maurice Meade. You’re not just another number - you’re a part of the team. And this applies to both our staff and our clients. We get the best out of our people, and do the best for them.”

    So, it sounds like you really go that extra mile…

    “Yes, we do. From our apprentices to our experienced hairdressers, we invest in our people – continuously. We just flew in a motivational speaker from the United States, to inspire and motivate our team. We’re constantly at the forefront of our industry, pushing our team to be the best they can be… so, collectively, we’re the best for our clients.”

    What’s the décor, vibe and feeling like at Maurice Meade?

    “We have nine salons – six Maurice Meade, and three ME by Maurice Meade. Maurice Meade is our luxurious, beautifully fitted, “I just want to be spoiled” stores. While our concept stores, ME by Maurice Meade take an edgier, youthful, quirky approach. At ME, clients can get the “complete” experience –
    getting their brows and nails done, as they wait for their hair
    to process.”

    What’s the Maurice Meade point of difference?

    “We’re the only salon in WA that can perform calligraphy cutting. We’ve got the rights to it. We look at every single client, personally. We don’t believe hairdressing should be a cookie-cutter production line. Hair is the only accessory we can’t take off… and like our clothes, it changes with each season.”

    You’ve recently started using Cloud Nine in salon, how are you finding it?

    “Ah, we love these tools! I love how Cloud Nine cares for your hair. We can vary what we’re doing and still create beautiful looks."

    What’s new in hair this winter?

    “Colour contouring. We’re now colouring hair to bring our the best of our clients features – by complimenting their face shapes and skin tones. We’re taking the same approach as we do for makeup, as nothing is standard. Colouring is now being done in a way that it’s never been done before. We’re also using fabuloso pro to personalise colours, it’s becoming a standard thing that our clients take home with them”.

    Okay! What’s one thing you tell all of your new apprentices?

    “Oh that’s a hard one. I start off by telling them that hairdressing isn’t just a job – it’s a lifestyle. It can take you anywhere in the world. You have the ability to change how someone feels about themselves, and this is powerful. It’s so much more than just hair. I always encourage them to think about each client as if it was their mum sitting in the chair… you’d give them special attention. Our clients deserve to be spoiled.”

    Do you have any tips for guys with thick unruly hair?

    Generally, this hair type tends to be dry and can get wiry and difficult to style - it also can get oily at the roots and dry on the ends. Using a great cleansing shampoo [try evo normal persons] to activate the scalp, remove build up and cleanse out dirt and oils is paramount, followed by a hydrating and smoothing conditioner that will moisturise and shut the cuticle.

    Daddy, daddy cool copyCH
    evo daddy, daddy cool father's day gift boxes: evo normal persons and evo crop strutters OR evo box o' bollox.  

    Your top hair cut recommendations?

    For easy maintenance, a good haircut is designed to work with your texture, thin out any excess and bring out the best of your hair - and it doesn't need to be expensive either.

    Thick hair? You cannot get away with random hack jobs for haircuts unless you want to spend all your time fighting to style it. Invest in a good hair cut.

    Dense hair? Best to look at tailored pompadours and undercuts that leave you looking sharp but work with some length on the top for shape.

    Curly hair? You can get away with more length as long as it is cut to bring out your curl - do not let a razor or thinning shears on your hair as it will exacerbate the frizz and make it more high maintenance to control.

    What are your main styling tips?

    Styling product that can go into your hair wet and dry will help control hair as soon as you step out of the shower and is an easy way to style unruly hair without taking up too much time [try Moroccanoil Original Treatment]. A good styling cream will also condense the hair and shut the cuticle without a heavy or greasy effect . A good curl control product or foundation cream [try evo liquid rollers] gives a great base to either air dry the hair, dry into shape or diffuse dry. You can then use a finishing product for your desired texture. Think a foundation product for wet to dry to set the tone and a finishing product for when the hair is dry to lock it in [try evo shebang-a-bang].

    Do you have any tips for guys on how to use hair tonics?

    Ask your barber or stylist, every hair is unique and you have to choose the product that fits your hair. The beauty of the Reuzel Tonics is that there is one for every hair and scalp type out there [try Reuzel Hair Tonic or Reuzel Grooming Tonic].

    What tips do you have for removing product build-up and degreasing the hair?

    If you want to remove the build-up of pomade and oil-based products use the new Reuzel Daily Conditioner on dry greasy hair, then add the Reuzel Scrub Shampoo and a little water, massage in, add water again, massage, rinse and wash with the Reuzel Daily Shampoo.

    Favourite product for perfect hair every day?

    Sea salt spray due to its ease of use, the texture it creates and the hold. It’s great for any type of hair and still easily malleable.

    What is your top tip to get the best shave every time?

    Keep an eye on the direction of the growth of hair. Make sure you shave with the grain not against. Keep the face hot and wet constantly.

    How regularly should you aim to visit a barber?

    For hair shorter than 1 inch on the sides I would recommend 3 weeks or less and anything between 1-3 inches then I recommend 4-6 weeks. I'd rarely advise longer than 6 weeks to keep up appearances.

    What is your favourite product right now?

    My favourite product would have to be evo haze, but if I could pick two, it would be evo salty dog with haze, best combo!

    One piece of men's grooming advice you always give your clients?

    Blowdry your hair into the shape that you desire [try evo mister fantastic] and then put product in. Putting product in wet hair is a really common problem amongst guys, they don’t seem to realise that as the hair dries it loses formation.

  • Moroccanoil: The Oil That Started It All

    Carmen Tal is one of the most inspirational and influential women in the beauty business; the humble talent behind the product that pioneered a new oil-infused category in the beauty industry: Moroccanoil.

    Lucky enough to speak with the stylish yet effortlessly chic Carmen, we share with you what it’s like to be so hands-on with a brand that now resides in more than 60 countries across the globe.

    How did Moroccanoil come to be?

    I was fortunate to discover an oil-infused treatment while traveling, which soon became our Moroccanoil Treatment. After experiencing dramatic results on my own hair, I embarked on a mission to bring this great product to the rest of the world.

    What is your favourite thing about the product that started it all?

    The results. They are truly transformative, and they’re the reason it’s become the essential foundation for hairstyling—and the one product no woman should be without.

    Who or what inspires the Moroccanoil brand?

    Moroccanoil creates products inspired by the needs of women, and strives to deliver formulas that are both simple and effective. All women simply want beautiful, healthy hair. With the demanding needs of home and work life, creating products that are easy to use is our priority.

    What keeps you so passionate and motivated?

    To be truly passionate about what you do, you must live your brand every day. Moroccanoil is a reflection of the exceptional results I myself expect from a beauty company as a consumer—this is the core of our success.

    Describe a day in the life of Carmen Tal?

    I wake up between 7:30 am and 8:00 am. I meditate first thing in the morning for 20 minutes. After that, I pick out my outfit for the day. I have a trainer that I work out with 3 times a week and on my own twice a week. When I don’t work out, I like to walk for at least 1 hour.

    I’m hands-on in all the departments at Moroccanoil— product development, education, PR and design—and I also happen to be the head of marketing. A typical day at work consists of meeting with the different division heads, which can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Those meetings are touch-bases to go over the projects everyone is working on; they take up most of my day.

    After work, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking time to relax with a good book or watch some TV. I also enjoy speaking with my friends over the phone. If I didn’t get a chance to go through all my emails during the day, I take the time to get back to everyone. One or two times a week I will go out to dinner with either friends or my children.

    People would probably be surprised that I have a very slow pace of life. I have learned the importance of making time for oneself and that my home is as important as my work. The key is moderation in everything that you do.

    What is your favourite aspect of working with such an amazing brand?

    My favourite part is my daily interaction with creative people of all different backgrounds and opinions inside and outside of my company. I love putting great ideas together and making them happen!
