  • Haircare Australia at Hair Expo 2018

    We had a great time having our brands showcase their talents on the mainstage with Evo, Denman, Olaplex, #Mydentity and Moroccanoil presenting throughout the weekend.

    Let’s face it, an Expo stage would feel incomplete without social media sensation, Guy Tang! Here he is in action, launch his new collections, Naked and Super Hero for #Mydentity.

    Celebrity colourist, Tracey Cunningham, took to the main stage to present the world-first launch of  Olaplex 4 & 5 – before any other country in the world!

  • Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018 Wrap Up

    Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018 (MBFWA 2018) once again provided a showstopping celebration of Australian fashion.

    Making their runway debut, Client Liaison Deluxe Line (CLDL), is the next step in cosmopolitan style and international flavour. Becoming iconic for enhancing their music with their inherent sense of style through custom designed costumes for their dynamic live shows and an ongoing commitment to their eclectic daywear wardrobe.

    For this range, Co-CEO’s Harvey Miller AO and Monte Morgan have turned up the treble to envisage and design a full service fashion collection including Menswear, Womenswear and Accessories. Inspired by archive resort footage of Christopher and Pixie Skase by Rennie Ellis, long late lunches and classic Australian flora and fauna, CLDL is executive relaxation for leisure enthusiasts, where life is a party and you’re always invited.

    Held in the Overseas Passenger Terminal at the Rocks gave views of the Sydney Opera House and an epic location for a runway, depicting the Australian landscape.

    Renya Xydis, Hair Director and Cloud Nine Ambassador, with Aiden Xydis Head Barber at The Men's Grooming Room, created six, funky key looks for the Client Liaison Deluxe Line, ‘Champagne Affection’, – with hair styles featuring big, bouncy blow-outs, high-school girl, curly off centre high ponies with Client Liaison scrunchies, the ultimate Brooke Shields ‘it-girl’ hair, ringlet curls and slick-back hair, capturing the 80’s.

    “I wanted to embody and draw inspiration from one of America’s highly renowned models and actresses, Brooke Shields to create the ultimate 80’s hair. Working at building the hair by creating volume, texture and oomph by using the Cloud Nine O Pod for blow-out styles and the Cloud Nine Curling Wand to form the hairstyle structure for the curly high ponie sealing with styling products to hold the look” – Renya says.

    “Working with the natural state of each of the guys’ hair, I used length to create volume and curls while slicking back shorter styles for a ‘wet look’ vibe” – Aiden commented.

    C/MEO Collective collection on the other hand was all about playing with volume, scale and colour to accentuate the female form and encourage the exploration of individual style. Summer essentials abound, with check dresses, lightweight linen, cinched waist shirting, logo tees and a dose of denim in chalk or classic blue.

    Held at the iconic Carriageworks location, the C/MEO Collective runway saw models weaving between freestanding custom made concertina installations.

    Lauren McCowan, Haircare Group Creative Director and Cloud Nine Hair Director for C/MEO Collective created a multitude of unique looks for the showcase at MBFWA 2018 –with a real focus on enhancing each model’s natural hair type. Undone knotted buns, loose, relaxed waves and ringlet curls graced the runway, dusted with chic hair beads from KELA Hair Jewellery. Embracing individuality was the centre of each of these key looks developed for the colour-filled C/MEO range.

    “I wanted to explore the two biggest trends globally right now which is the 'Art of the Individual' and 'Self Acceptance' - exploring and celebrating each models individual hair type and texture. Working and building a beautiful base, quality to the hair and then using Cloud Nine to seal that in and create beautiful finishes without compromising the quality of each girls hair" - McCowan says.

    HCA Creative Director, Lauren McCowan celebrates individual hair type and texture and shows us how she created a twisted bun for C/MEO Collective at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018.

    With a focus on enhancing natural hair type - the C/MEO Collective runway show at MBFWA18 saw undone knotted buns, loose, relaxed waves and ringlet curls, dusted with chic hair beads from Kela Hair Jewellery.

    “I wanted to explore the two biggest trends globally right now which is the 'Art of the Individual' and 'Self Acceptance' - exploring and celebrating each models individual hair type and texture. Working and building a beautiful base, quality to the hair and then using Cloud Nine to seal that in and create beautiful finishes without compromising the quality of each girls hair" - Lauren McCowan says.

    Create the twisted bun in just 7 simple steps using essential tools, Cloud Nine Airshot and Cloud Nine Micro Iron.

    Recreate this runway look using Cloud Nine tools and Kela Hair Jewels:

    Get the Look: Twisted Bun

                  1.  Dampen hair with Evo Day of Grace and brush through to hydrate and prepare hair for styling.
      2.  Whilst the hair is still damp, apply Evo Salty Dog to the hairline, then layer with Evo Water Killer. Use the Cloud Nine Airshot to blow-dry product into hair to create lift and an airy texture.
      3. Use a wide tooth comb to scrape hair back into a ponytail and secure just below the crown with an elastic bungee.
      4. Split the ponytail into two and tie both sections of hair into knots to create a twisted bun. Secure with a clear elastic and hair pins to keep the hair tight and to lock into shape.
       5. Pull out the ends of the hair from the bun to create a tail.
       6. Use a bristle brush to brush the front hairline forward to loosen fly-a-aways. Polish in some texture with the Cloud Nine Micro Iron and Evo Builders Paradise for a considered finish through the front.
       7. Apply a dusting of Kela hair beads for a chic, effortless elegance finish.

  • Renya Xydis | A Little Respect

    Renya Xydis chats Instagram, rising to the top, the reality of respect and her upcoming education workshop, The Sessions.

    Renya Xydis, the pink haired, (usually) red-lipped dynamo that elevated the Sydney salon landscape and set standards for ‘session’ in Australia. She has built a cult following in Valonz Haircutters and propelled profiles in the likes of Travis Balcke – Eugene Souleiman’s right hand man.

    Cloud Nine Ambassador, celebrity stylist, savvy business woman and the driver of trend defining Instagram accounts @sydneysbesthaircolourists and @valonzhaircutters, it’s a busy, burgeoning life for Renya Xydis – one punctuated with a stream of timeless beauty; moments that make pictures to last a lifetime.

    But it hasn’t been all high times and hero hair moments. While today you’ll find her working the fashion week circuit from New York to Paris, settling the likes of Cate Blanchett into her chair or creating on-set for VOGUE and Marie Claire, what people don’t see are the years of sacrifice and hard work Renya has invested to manifest her life today. We all have to start somewhere, and for Renya, reality is the key.

    “My best advice for younger artists realizing their creativity? Don’t pick up a copy of Italian VOGUE and think you can create that. They spent thousands of dollars to get that look and then you’ve got hours of post production,” Renya begins.

    “There is so much happening on Instagram, we have access to the work and minds of the world’s best creatives, use it, consume it … and learn your lighting! Google your favourite photographers and various lighting styles, this generation of hairdressers don’t realize how lucky they are, it’s so easy to do your research now,” believes Renya.

    For Renya, as much as she loves Instagram – its universal connection, and what the platform can do for a profile and business – a new urge for instant gratification is stimulating a warped belief that, as quickly as we can access imagery, we can master the mind the behind it.

    “What young stylists don’t understand is that in the case of so many styles we see in Italian VOGUE, i-D or the latest Prada campaign, the hair director and/or creative team has spent months or even years on making that moment happen. There are so many little secrets behind these looks and quite often, they’re the result of a series of mistakes that the hair director will run with,” Renya divulges.

    Renya suggests connecting with local fashion schools such as FBI, attending their annual fashion parades, taking note of emerging designers and, ultimately, collaborating with them. And the same principle applies to makeup and photography. The likes of MAC Cosmetics and Napoleon Perdis have a budding collective of artists just waiting to get creative and gather the experience they need to be great. When it comes to photography, Renya suggests approaching the assistants of the photographer’s assistants, “just be there on-set and help out, that’s how you meet and connect with people … but put your phone away, it’s so disheartening to everyone.”

    “Just be humble, and be respectful. Take a look at the situation that you’re in. If you’re allowed backstage or at a shoot, really appreciate it, it’s someone else’s dream and hard work and they’re giving that to you,” says Renya.

    “No other seminar or workshop can educate you on mastering the nature, pace and precision of backstage or on set, and it’s free! Think about it, every other course, cutting, up-styling, you have to pay for.”

    Sharing and integrity drive all that Renya applies herself to, and her Instagram accounts are no exception. For Renya, a successful Instagram feed is one that speaks of you as an individual and, where hairdressers are concerned, an artist.

    “Everything I put on Instagram is reflective of what I would want to learn and how I would like to look,” she begins.

    “Don’t sway to other people’s Instagram accounts, don’t copy. So many accounts are all about the same, fly-away texture and standard colour … this looks like a piece of toast to me, it looks bland.”

    Renya is a passionate advocate for the many colours, ethnicities and interpretations of beauty that we, as the human race, represent, and believes that with our real and virtual access to all corners of the world, there’s no excuse to lead a boring feed.

    “You’ve got to bring a bit of magic, look at your feed, look at your last 12 images, have you got versatility, have you got colour in there saying ‘I’ve got a personality?’ I see fun, vivacious girls with bland Instagram accounts - that’s not showing off their personality,” continues Renya.

    “If you love the beach, put that on there, if you love fashion, feature some of that too but just make sure those posts occupy 1 % of your feed, and the remaining 99% hair, what you believe in.”

    It is all this and more that Renya will discuss in an intimate, open format at the upcoming Cloud Nine, The Sessions workshop. The morning will see Renya share her secrets to building and maintaining a successful salon, all while growing a creative career and engaging clientele.

    “I want participants to walk away with a strong understanding of how to engage and grow the right clientele for them, their team and salon culture,” says Renya.

    “And it’s so important for salon owners to nourish their own creativity whilst running and building a successful business. For some this may seem a difficult task, so I want to provide insight on how to make this a reality – a reality that will build culture, team morale and have a direct impact on the salon’s bottom line.”

    An expert in salon marketing and brand culture in the digital realm, Renya will educate on building a strong following and will guide participants on creating a piece of content, ready for market, on the day.

    “I’m really looking forward to guiding each participant through the process of creating a powerful and directional piece of content ready for social media. We’re going to explore the best apps, techniques and timings to get the most from digital ready content and really drive a salon forward,” she says.

    The Sessions Workshop will take place on Tuesday, 15th August. Click here to secure your spot. 

  • The Fashion Week Wrap-Up

    Once again Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia was a showstopping fashion extravaganza. It showcased emerging Australian talent and household names like Dion Lee and Romance Was Born, as well as the major comeback of Australian fashion brand Sass & Bide.

    The key hair trends that ran through many of the designers shows were natural, effortless hair with the hint of a 90’s come back. Many of the hair looks championed the model’s individuality and showcased their natural beauty.

    Sass & Bide was a celebrated affair, with a collection titled ‘Fiesta Barcelona’, which was inspired by Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Batillo. The resort collection celebrated the whimsical decorative exterior and the zen simplicity of the white light interior.

    Renya Xydis, Cloud Nine Ambassador, acted as the Hair Director for the show and emancipated the Sass & Bide girl with the ultimate cool-girl braids. Renya created five modern twists on a classic braid, with looks featuring sleek and straight simplicity juxtaposed with unapologetic Mohawk tails, modern cornrows and fighting fish tails to capture the pulse of Barcelona street culture.

    "We wanted to create looks that showcased that the Sass & Bide girl as fresh and modern, playing on the spirit and essence of Barcelona. We created the sleekness of the looks with the Cloud Nine Wide Iron and then the intricate Mohawk braids to complement the bold shimmering street life featured within the collection." – Renya Xydis

    C/MEO Collective on the other hand was all about the ultimate ‘feminine-girl’ look this year at Carriageworks. The collection itself, was all about dramatic ruffles, exaggerated detailing and floral prints. The models gracefully floated down the runway, emphasising the brand's DNA of effortless beauty.

    Lauren McCowan, Haircare Group Creative Director and Hair Director for C/MEO Collective created two understated looks for the runway. One was the classic messy ballet bun, perfectly complemented by the second look, which was undone, flowing tresses. Both looks complemented the wild femininity and vigorous spirit throughout the colour soaked range.

    "We wanted the hair look to emphasise the playful and floral nature of the collection. These runway styles can be worn day-to-day, as they are effortless, easy and internationally appropriate." – Lauren McCowan.
