  • Cloud Nine Hair does Fashion Week 2014

    The amazing Renya Xydis and Lauren McCowan proved their award winning skills yet again at Mercedes Benz Fashion week for Aje, Duvenage and Di$count Universe with Cloud Nine Hair. 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

  • The Cloud Nine Touch Has Arrived

They then created four distinct looks on different models using only The Touch, at this point the room was captivated by the ease at which each of the looks was achieved using temperature controlled heat.
