  • Fashion Week Street Style | Hair Inspiration

    Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2016 might have been and gone but it's certainly not forgotten. The fashion industry's event of the year saw our evo, Cloud Nine and Moroccanoil hair teams bring life to runway shows from Australian labels like Yeojin BaeC/MEO and Rebecca Vallance, but the models weren't the only stars of the show - Fashion Week wouldn't be the same without it's show-goers.

    Here we've captured some of our favourite Fashion Week street style moments for some incredible hair inspiration. From ponytail's to the perfect wave, these styles ruled the streets.

    Our experts give us their tips on how to achieve these looks to help us get ready for our next big event!

    I'm liking the middle parts here and the fact the hair is smooth but not too straight and still has a touch of volume in the roots. To create this look, I would blow-dry the hair but if blowdrying is too much effort for a mid-week look, I would use the Cloud Nine Original or Cloud Nine Wide Iron to smooth the hair on a low temperature – nothing above 175 degrees. If you do choose to blow-dry the hair, smooth it after at a super-low temperature like 125 degrees. With hair this long, it’s really important to invest in a decent brush and get regular trims. Be gentle when brushing, don’t over process the hair or use high temperatures when heat styling.

    Very few things beat a perfect
    ponytail for me. This look is so sophisticated and too cool for school at the same time.  In order to create the perfect pony, I start with the perfect foundation, and for me that’s the Moroccanoil Treatment Light. I would then layer in the Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse to achieve the perfect texture and natural shine. A trick I picked up backstage at Fashion Week is to lightly spray the root area with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection and blow-dry into the direction of where you want to place the base of the ponytail. This gets rid of bubbles and gives you the ultimate sleek and shiny finish.

    I like that this woman takes care of how she looks and clearly visits the salon regularly. To get this look I would blow-out the hair using evo’s mister fantastic and set with the Cloud Nine Waving Wand, finishing the look with evo builders paradise and a couple of drops of evo love perpetua. It’s all about the prep work if you want curls like this to last all day, be sure not to use a heavy shampoo or conditioner and always start with mister fantastic. It’s really important to set the hair at the right temperature too and leave curls to cool before dressing them out.

    This look is effortless and minimal. It has a no fuss approach that suits the overall look. To recreate this look I would start by washing the hair with evo therapist shampoo and evo therapist conditioner and apply evo easy tiger straightening balm and blow dry the hair smooth with the evo bruce bristle brush. To keep hair this length looking its best you need to keep up your cuts as you don’t want it flicking out on the shoulders. I would recommend having a cut every 6-8 weeks to ensure the look is polished and maintained.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • evo shebang-a-bang Wins Best New Styling Product Award | 2016 AHFAs

    On Sunday 10th April 2016, the Australian hair industry came together to celebrate the Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA's). It's in 24th year, the award ceremony has cemented it's place as one of the most reconsigned and respected events of the year, honouring every facet of the industry including the products that make everything possible.

    This year, evo's shebang-a-bang was awarded the well deserved AHFA Best New  Professional Styling Product of the Year. Since it's launch, shebang-a-bang has become a staple amongst Haircare Australia staff and clients, offering an effortlessness that before trying you could only ever dream of.

    With a light fragrance holding top notes of basil, green tea and clean aromatic green base, this long lasting dry wax spray increases the texture and definition of hair with a satin-matte finish, light hold and general feeling of absolute hair success. With the aerosol delivery of the finest mist, even coverage and application means that with shebang-a-bang anyone can become the master of their hair. To top it off,  shebang-a-bang is also sulphate, paraben, dea, tea and propylene glycol free and

    So, who is shebang-a-bang for?

    evo shebang-a-bang dry spray wax is suitable for all types of hair to create that hint of effortlessness everyone is looking for. From short, fine hair looking for volume and separation, through to thick curls that need definition but want a clean, flexible, touchable texture, shebang-a-bang can do it all.

    "Flexible, non-greasy and way too easy to apply. Hard to use too much and even harder to put down. How do evo keep coming up with all this greatness?" -  evo Ambassador, Jules Tognini on his love of shebang-a-bang.

    How do you use it?

    This genius creation can be used on all hair types in both wet and dry hair. It is the perfect choice for everything from building volume and texture, to bringing out layers and bed hair, or even to define curls without leaving them feeling heavy or greasy.

    To Achieve Definition. 

    Spray evo shebang-a-bang on the ends of your hair when heat styling or blow-drying if you have dry, split ends; or if you just want polished definition through your style.

    To Achieve Texture.

    To achieve soft, textured waves, spray shebang-a-bang into damp hair, braid your hair and let dry before shaking out into soft, textured waves with a satin-matte finish.

    To Achieve Separation. 

    Spray shebang-a-bang through hair after blow drying and comb for separation without weighing the hair down.

    To all of the nominees, finalists and winners, we would love to take this opportunity to congratulate your efforts. Well done to all.

  • Salon Feature: Organika Hair

    Exceptional hair. No compromises. These aren’t just words for Sarah and Lisa, the co-owners at Organika Hair.

    Swapping sulphate, paraben, gluten, chloride and phthalate for only natural and organic products, Organika Hair is like the Birkenstock wearing, gluten-free hipster – stylish, with an environmental conscience. Sit back with a drink, relax... guilt-free!

    Ladies, why do you have such a strong environmental focus in salon?

    It’s a lifestyle choice. A healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy planet. It’s all linked. We believe you don’t have to compromise your health for great hair, in fact, we know you don’t have to.

    Lisa, who inspired you to open a salon like Organika?

    I worked in a salon for 10 years before Organika. That’s when, I discovered my beliefs and lifestyle were a contradiction to my work. I was living a green life at home, but the moment I walked into work everyday, I was exposed to all of the toxins. It just didn’t feel right using them on clients either.

    What do you love about the Neuma range?

    This range embodies everything we stand for. It always delivers results, without the compromise. It's leading the way in healthy
    products that actually work. It’s a win-win!

    How has being a Prestige Partner impacted you, Lisa? Would you recommend it?

    Being a Prestige Partner has given me the opportunity to be involved in all the amazing events. The trip to Hobart in August 2015 at MONA
    was a standout. I’d certainly recommend this initiative.

    Who inspires Organika the most?

    Our clients... and I’m not just saying that. They really are the ones who keep us motivated to do better, everyday. We love hearing about their lives, getting to know each and every one, and hopefully making a difference in the way they feel.

    So, what gets Sarah out of bed each morning?

    Making clients feel amazing about themselves. And the look in their eyes as they walk out of the salon, knowing they look fabulous. Best of all, doing this without putting any harmful chemicals on their body. Oh, and I can’t forget my beautiful, nine month old son, Roman. He has a special knack for getting me up very early in the morning. He’s my personal alarm clock!

    What are Organika’s goals for 2016?

    Maybe another Organika salon – interstate this time! Exciting times ahead for the Organika team.

    Okay, knowing what you know now, if you could go back in time, what‘s the one piece of advice you’d give yourself?

    Always, always, always... trust your instincts. I think there’s a part of you that truly knows what’s best for you. Often, we just don’t listen to it. Follow that inner voice.

  • Adelaide Fashion Festival Look Step by Step: Tribal Texture

    Using evo and Cloud Nine, Atilio Dusa and the clip joint creative team created this tribal twist on a Geisha bun achieving a minimal yet textured finish.

    1. Prep hair by using evo mister fantastic and blow drying using the pete paddle brush, then smooth the cuticle using Cloud Nine Wide or Original iron on a low heat.
    2. Section off the front top and sides of the hair leaving the back down. Using your evo bradford bristle brush, brush the hair from the top section in an upwards direction into a high ponytail. Using hat elastic, wrap around the base of the pony very tightly and tie off.
    3. Repeat same steps for second section through the back of the head bringing it up to join the top pony. (this can also be split up into a few sections if hair is thick).
    4. Using evo builders paradise working spray to smooth and fly always. Again using evo bradford bristle brush, brush a section of hair through the top front hairline, (between rescession lines) against the direction of the ponytail to create a textured, fly away effect. Then light spray more builders paradise spray to set.
    5. For the high bun, spray evo builders paradise into the pony and start to twist the hair from bottom to top and bring the twist back down to the base and pin tightly to base with fringe and bobby pins. Slightly pull bun apart to loosen and create texture but keep as much height as possible.
    6. Finish but doing a final spray of evo builders paradise

  • Haircare Australia Education | A New York Adventure

    “He adored New York City. He idolised it all out of proportion…No, make that: he romanticised it all out of proportion. Yes. To him, no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin”. 

    – Woody Allen, Manhattan.

     

    Back from the city so amazing they named it twice; the Haircare Australia New York Study Tour team are putting their new found knowledge and experience to the test. After a week of fashion shows, creative workshops, celebratory drinks and a dash of exploration, the group are now well versed in the fundamental rights of passage amongst New Yorkers. Really, how much more New York can you get than experiencing Fashion Week first hand?

    Haircare Australia New York Study Tour 1

    In its second year, the NYST has again proven its place as one of the most exciting educational events on offer to Australian hairdressers. The stellar line-up of activities, brands and mentors are what makes the now annual event an inspiringly unique experience. With so many activities on offer, each day brings something new that each attendee can immerse themselves into. From working with the Haircare Australia portfolio and uncovering new skills, to learning about the fundamentals of running a successful business, the tour is as informative as inspirational.

    Led by Haircare Australia Creative Director, Lauren McCowan and her band of experienced contributors, each attendee was able to get up close and personal with some of the most influential names in the industry. Stimulating and thought provoking content was rife throughout the tour, with each snippet of knowledge perfect for implementation in any salon. Having lived in New York herself, Lauren knows first-hand what the city has to offer and has carefully crafted the tour to showcase the best of the best. “One of the key functions of the NYST is to immerse you as a creative into all this city has to offer, share and collaborate on the craft of hair, while showing you new experiences in the city that never sleeps” Lauren says of the NYST.

    The highlight of the tour for many was no doubt the once in a lifetime experience to work behind the scenes at New York fashion week. With Kenna Kennor directing for evo, the NYST team created the perfect complement to TOME designers, Ryan and Ramon’s Spring Summer 2016 collection. The look, accurately dubbed ‘freshly slicked’ provided a naturally flawless, fresh out of the shower look. Working behind the scenes at Fashion Week is a defining experience for many stylists and being able to participate in a week-full of amazing opportunities alongside it only makes the NYST experience unlike any other.

    Haircare Australia New York Study Tour

    The NYST is all about offering a glimpse into the minds of some of our best and brightest ambassadors who have a long-standing love affair with the incredible city that is New York. With education at the heart, this tour is the perfect platform for hairdressers from all walks to life to experience the new and fantastic opportunities on offer through Haircare Australia Education and the NYST.

    The Tour

    Day 1: Welcome Drinks

    The NYST team were wined and dined at the iconic Crosby St Hotel for team introductions and a briefing of all of the amazing activities in store over the week.

    Day 2: TOME

    To kick the NYST off in the best possible way the group were given the chance to work backstage at TOME with Kenna Kennor for evo.

    Day 3: PREMA Brunch

    In a change of pace from the previous day, the team were treated to a brunch with Francesco Ruggerino and Dale Delaporte from the Prema group. The brunch was about all things with business with building and inspiring long-standing teams and retaining and growing clientèle the focus.

    Day 4: Creative Cutting

    Anthony Edge and Marie Kieffer from evo worked with the group demonstrating creative and innovative cutting techniques, encouraging the group to really step outside the box (in typical evo fashion).

    Day 5: Creative Colouring

    At Pembly salon in Soho, the group were treated to a creative colour workshop with Cassie Harwood from evo and Slim, the international educator for Olaplex. A number of new innovative lightening techniques and unique ways to offer them in salon were explored.

    Day 6: Editorial Shoot & Moroccanoil Styling Session

    For the final day, the team came together to push their creativity to the next level with an editorial shoot with James Hartley, Lauren, Mathieu Jacquet and Bonnie Gilles from Oz Beauty Expert.

  • Salon Feature: Mr Burrows

    Newtown / Sydney

    Escape to Mr Burrows’ rainforestesque basin room.

    A place to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney's daily grind. Nestled away in Newtown, Mr Burrows takes the salon experience to the next level. From the luscious rainforest-inspired garden wall and Spanish moss hanging from the ceiling in their basin room to their signature Mr Burrows espresso martini offered on Saturdays, Mr Burrows is about more than just the haircut, it’s luxury.

    The focus at Mr Burrows is on the experience and the quality of their service. The team are committed to transforming people’s lives through amazing hair. Owner James knows the importance of investing in his staff through training and development. People go to Mr Burrows not only to enjoy their experience but with the knowledge that their hair is in good hands.

    Mr Burrows Hairdresser, Newtown / Sydney

    Mr Burrows Top 3 Tips

    1. Home hair care is insurance for your hair. Use the right products for your hair type and use them correctly.

    2. Shampoo your hair correctly. Shampoo the roots only, then towel dry the ends as hair is like a sponge. If you don’t squeeze the water out you won’t get the most out of your product.

    3. Always ask the client how open they are to trying something new. You never know how far you can push their next haircut, but we work with them to get the most out of it.

    What makes Mr Burrows unique?

    Our aim, from the moment you step through the front door, is to provide an escape to your everyday life. Our philosophy 'accessible luxury' means being able to deliver the highest level of service at an affordable price from a stylist that has been properly and continually trained. Our clients also love the little extras, like the individual cheese platters or cheeky vino that we offer.

    What are your tips for running a successful salon?

    Number one is consistency. Never forget who pays the bill. Clients need to walk through the door and be treated the same every time. Number two is your team. Without a happy, cohesive and supported team your salon will not be successful.

    You recently worked in the evo fashion week team, how was that?

    What a pleasure to be asked to work on this amazing show, overlooking Bondi beach. Reyna Xydis is great to work with, having her direction on a show is always inspirational and learning new techniques is what makes me love this job so much! The look we worked on was really cool, giving a just stepped out of the beach finish. We pre-styled the hair to create movement, then using serums and oils we drenched the hair down and it worked a treat.

    How has being a Haircare Australia Prestige Partner benefited your salon?

    The Haircare Australia Prestige Partner program has boosted my salon immensely. Being part of this program saves you time managing multiple accounts/stockists and of course money. Not to mention that it offers you a massive range of high performing products for really competitive prices. The access we get to training and support from a huge team of professionals is a big positive too. I am also booked on to the New York Study tour, which, without Prestige Partners, would not have been on my radar this year. This is no doubt going to be unbelievably inspiring and I can’t wait to bring this knowledge and enthusiasm back to my salon, team and clients.

    Neon beauty / Southport, Queensland

    What pieces of clothing could you not live without for spring/summer?

    I love my Ford + Harris ‘Spike Jonze’ succulent silver necklace pendant, it dresses up every outfit I own. Also my Valley ‘Sabbath’ sunglasses that I had transformed into specs, they will definitely get some wear and tear this spring/summer.

    What is your favourite evo product and why?

    The product we use the most in the salon would have to be love touch shine spray – it is literally the icing on the cake for finishing any client’s hair.

    Why would you recommend the Haircare Australia Prestige Partners program?

    Since becoming a Prestige Partner our salon staff feel a part of a nationwide family who cares about the success of each salon they work with.

  • The Latest Hair Trends from MBFWA15

    evo and Cloud Nine were once again at the forefront of Sydney Fashion Week as they took charge behind the scenes creating some of the most iconic hair looks of the week. Here is our recap of the week, a sneak peak of the latest latest hair trends for Spring Summer 2015.

    Ten Pieces

    For the first time in Sydney Fashion Week history, Ten Pieces designers Maurice Terzini and Lucy Hinckfuss took the runway to the beach. In a unique display of modern-day punk with that 'just stepped off the beach' look, mother and son duo, Renya and Aiden Xydis brought the location to life through their hair look.

    latest hair trends sydney fashion week 3

    ”We wanted to create a look that flattered the sophisticated modern-day punk and sportswear of the Ten Pieces collection. The models were styled to look as though they had just stepped off the beach, with wet and textured hair. To create shape, we used the Cloud Nine Wand in the women’s hair,” Renya Xydis says.

    A true family affair,  Renya directed the women’s look for Cloud Nine and Aiden directed the men’s look for evo. The hero products used by the duo were the Cloud Nine Wand and evo's salty dog and love perpetua.

    "Just like the collection, we incorporated texture and layers into the men’s hair, achieving a wet look using evo salty dog sea salt spray and evo love perpetua shine drops. Prior to the show, we also

    prepped the guys by giving them fresh cuts at Valonz to help emphasise the effortless, natural style.” Aiden Xydis said.

    DYSPNEA

    In one of the hottest collaborations of Sydney Fashion Week, evo and one of Sydney's most renowned salons, Edwards & Co came together for the outrageously enchanting and ultramodern Spring Summer 15 Dyslexicola collection.

    "Just like the collection, we wanted to really push the boundaries and be equally as daring with the hair. We decided to put our own unique twist on the wet look and sectioned off strands of hair from the front to create uniquely shaped designs on all 20 models. This striking and bold look perfectly embodied the playful nature of the clothes". Byron Turnball, Hair Director

    Inspired by FKA TWIGS, Byron used the hero's of the show, evo gangsta grip and happy campers to perfectly craft the wet look that acted as the perfect compliment to the magical collection.

    Lee Matthews

    Cloud Nine ambassador, editorial stylist and hair directing extraordinaire, Renya Xydis  created the perfect ponytail for Lee Matthews stunning Japanese Katazome inspired collection.

    Designed for the individual who can cleverly mix proportions and textures. Pieces have an elongated and linear appeal,
    referencing an oriental style of dressing and aesthetic. Looks swing from masculine to feminine with a relaxed sense of
    ‘menswear for women’ expressing a confident yet understated tone.

    Renya wanted to create a look to complement Lee’s creativity and use of texture. “I love how Lee uses so many different fabrics, which really inspired me to create the lived in, slept in ponytail with a lot of texture. The look is relaxed and sophisticated to compliment the collection” she says.

    The “slept in ponytail” was created using a sea salt spray (try evo salty dog) to prep the hair, the Cloud Nine Waving Wand to add depth, and a texture powder to create a lived in look (evo haze is great for this).

    How to Get the Messy Hair Look - The Steps

    1. Dry in evo salty dog salty spray at the roots of the hair and dust the crown lightly with evo haze styling powder, and gently rub in.

    2. Take vertical sections and curl with the Cloud Nine Waving Wand.

    3. Add more evo haze to the roots and mid-lengths to add extra texture and shake through to break up the curl and distribute product.

    4. Curl the hair a second time in large sections, curling the front sections away from the face.

    5.  Add more evo haze styling powder and rub through the roots and mid lengths to break up the curl for a second time for an extra 'slept-in' look.

    6. Take the two front sections and tie tightly at the base of the head, underneath the main section.

    7.  Pull the rest of the hair back into a loose ponytail and tie with a second elastic. Add more evo haze and rub through to add texture.

    separation, enabling the focus to remain on the tome collection and to add a sporty edge to ladylike construction" - Lauren McCowan Hair Director
