  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • Salon Feature: Neon Beauty

    Southport / Queensland

    What do you love most about being a hairdresser?

    Every day is a new challenge and every day we get to create something new. I will never get tired of that, plus there is something so satisfying in making guests feel confident about themselves.

    What is the one piece of advice you always give your clients?

    Quality over quantity... full stop.

    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. Haircare Australia has provided us with confidence in the products they offer with an exceptional education program and has allowed us to network with other like-minded hair stylists and business owners, keeping us connected and up to date with the industry.

    What are your goals for the New Year?

    We hope to expand the salon team and to keep creating and pushing the boundaries. We are also aiming at debuting a collection at Hair Expo in 2016.

  • 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).

    evo hair sleek ponytail TOME 2015

    "The inspiration for the look came directly from tome’s collection, they have become synonymous with classic structure and exquisite tailoring, but with unexpected finishes and fabrics. the looks for the collection were quite ladylike, so we wanted to bring a sport luxe feel to the hair and a really effortless finish to offset the tailoring of the collection; maintaining that hint of the unexpected. An effortless sleek ponytail that brings out the shape of the face with texture and
    separation, enabling the focus to remain on the tome collection and to add a sporty edge to ladylike construction" - Lauren McCowan Hair Director

  • A Celebration of South Australian Hairdressers with Parlour Hair Academy

    Parlour Hair Academy’s annual Guest Artist Show stepped it up this year, with record numbers and wholehearted support from Haircare Australia’s evo and Cloud Nine as it celebrated South Australian Hairdressers.

    This year held at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide, the Parlour Hair Academy Guest Artist Show is a celebration and collaboration of South Australia’s finest industry talent – the young, the wise, award winning and aspiring – plus a dedicated attempt at raising the profile of professional hairdressing.

    Initiated by Karen and Robert Bava, founders of Parlour Hair and Parlour Hair Academy, the event was built from the pair’s passion for education but also from the recognition that South Australia is home to a high concentration of prestige industry talent with, up until three years ago, no local platform to share and inspire those around them.

    South Australian Hairdressers Parlour Hair Academy

    Beginning as a small(er) 160-strong event at a local nightclub, the event has quickly outgrown itself with 2014 marking the first year in a larger space and with an official sponsor in evo and Cloud Nine, Haircare Australia.

    “If you can’t support the industry in your own backyard then there’s a problem isn’t there?” said the wisest Gauvin of them all, Geoff Gauvin, Managing Director of Haircare Australia.

    The Parlour Hair Guest Artist Show effectively gathers the state’s best educators, session stylists, technicians and apprentices and offers them a stage to do what they do best, hair. The people watching are stylists, salon owners and a contingency of media, fashion representatives and career councilors – a collective bound by nothing other than a common passion for professional hairdressing. At Parlour Hair Academy Guest Artist Show it doesn’t matter what colour you connect with, or which salon you belong to, everyone is welcome.

    “Why would you present to a bunch of stylists already stocking your product or attending your academy, when you could be getting the attention of stylists and salon owners from other brands and salons – they’re your potential new clients,” says owner-founder of Dare salons, Adelaide, Paul Dare.

    Paul Dare has been in the industry for 37 years and, it’s fair to say, he’s well versed in professional colour companies, what works for business, staff and the bottom line. Recently signing over from one of the major’s, Paul and his two Dare salons are now stern advocates of the Haircare Australia mantra and its eclectic house of products. So passionate about the multi-tiered offerings that stand Haircare apart, and so vested in the dialect, you’d think he’d been a Haircare recruit for decades, not 6 months.

    “We at Dare hair have taken a long time to accept that they (Haircare Australia) are the leaders in the industry. They are producing spectacular products that are now being sold worldwide, and they have Fabuloso Pro which is kicking ass.”

    “My Colour Technician struggled to sell product, not any more. If you can’t sell Fab Pro as a colour technician, you will be fired from my business, not only is the product phenomenal, but it’s a great way to generate extra salon revenue,” he said.

    outh Australian Hairdressers Parlour Hair Academy 2

    Somewhat of a South Australian icon, Paul’s move to Haircare Australia seems to harmonise like neon and unicorns – the hero educator believes in removing the blinkers and breaking the rules(only after you’ve mastered them) – an outlook shared by the Gauvin family in their creation of evo and compound of unique brands – effectively catering for every stylist, every interior and every business model.

    Maybe there’s something in the water, but unlike our more populated states, South Australian’s seem to go about things a little more quietly, less feather ruffling more creating. They’ll take a solid drop of red before an air kiss, thanks, and profanities are kind of, well, the norm. They punctuate life a little differently. Perhaps because they’re detached from the Sydney-Melbourne kinetic, the ego isn’t required, everyone seems less affected, more inspired. Or as Robert Bava describes it, ‘just real.’ How beautiful.

    The Parlour Hair Academy Guest Artist Show is the ultimate reflection of its city and unwritten board of creatives, and this year boasted the biggest line-up yet. Split into three sessions, the first was host to 2014’s Young Guns.

    To be vested in the industry is to grow our future hands, a dedication that runs deep within Robert and Karen Bava. The Young Guns is a group of industry youth hand selected by the Bava’s to take on their annual Young Guns program. To enter, each potential ‘gun’ needs to simply submit a short video showcasing their creative aspiration and dedication to industry growth. Four are chosen and gain valuable experience throughout the year including presenting on stage at the Creative Guest Artist Show. In the eyes of the Bava’s everyone has something worth sharing, no matter who you are. And that’s exactly what this event is all about.

    Session Two saw Paul Dare present a 20 minute haircut and a five hour (pre done) Lakme colour – a modern bob with a steely grey finish – while Katie Kromwijk of Rock Retro Scissors delivered a set-style to give Cloud Nine Creative Director Lauren McCowan a run for her money.

    South Australian Hairdressers Parlour Hair Academy 1

    Session Three was all about the lads. Not The Lads, hugely successful evo seminar that recently toured America with roaring results, but evo International Ambassador Jules Tognini, evo Ambassador for South Australia, Damien Rinaldo, Stephen Arrizza from The Basin Haircutters and Uros Mikic of Kinky Curly Straight – lined up, Parlour Hair Guest Artist-style.

    Although not part of the South Australian contingent, Jules was flown in to headline on behalf of evo and shared one of his quintessential men’s cuts live. For Jules, he was honored to join the evening’s itinerary, the man is after all one of the most approachable award winning stylists our country has ever seen – a thought that became fact with his late arrival, and the swarm of stylists that ensued. Drinks were thrust in his hand, eyes lit up and a semi-circle was formed – ears pricked, waiting for him to speak. The funny part is they were all guys. Adorable. And Jules didn’t flinch. Despite being due on stage in 15 minutes he alluded to all the time in the world.

    “I’m lucky enough to be the outsider that’s been invited!” he exclaimed.

    “I think about egos and hairdressing and I just hate it, I just like hanging out with people. Ideally one day we’re all going to work together in peace and harmony and not have to worry about egos because we all just accept each other. And that’s what these events are for, that’s what the Parlour Hair Guest Artist Show is all about,” said Jules.

    South Australian Hairdressers Parlour Hair Academy 3

    The boys continued to demonstrate creative camaraderie at its best – switching from technical insight to chats about the unlimited offerings making hairdressing one of the best industries in the world.

    A sentiment backed up by Damien Rinaldo of Boris the Cuttery – master of sexy, undone hair. Not undone as in a raw version of Victoria’s Secret-style hair (boring), we’re talking before-it’s-time-sexiness-with-edge. The kind of hair design women want to wear and men want to create.

    “Some people will say ‘that’s not a haircut you can do in the salon,’ and you know what it’s probably not, but that’s the beauty about this industry and events like this, you can express yourself,” Damien said of his ice-blonde modern-mullet that struck a pose between David Bowie and AXL Rose in their hey days.

    This is why our Adelaide counterparts are so successful – businesses like Haircare Australia, products like evo and people like Robert and Karen Bava – they cut the bullshit. And without the cloud of discontent that is ego and selfishness, they’re able to think clearly and create wholeheartedly. Fearless and free, they’re the future and we salute them.

    A big shout out to the below presenters who made The Parlour Hair Academy Creative Guest Artist Show a huge success in 2014!

  • evo Hair for TOME at New York Fashion Week

    Hair Director Lauren McCowan for evo hair led the New York Study Tour team in creating the beautiful look for TOME's New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 show. The inspiration  behind the look comes from strong Indian influences through the intricacy and detail in the pleating  in the key looks.

    "We wanted to create a look reminiscent of traditional Indian hair, while also keeping in line with the chic, effortless and slightly unexpected finishes of TOME" - Lauren McCowan

    With a fine balance between polish and effortless flyaway, Lauren created a look that is a sophisticated compliment to the collection while still being wearable to the consumer.

    evo_hair_TOME

    Get the look from TOME

    Step 1: Spray hair down with evo mister blowout spray. Dry into hair with a dressing brush for polish and texture.

    Step 2: Using a tail comb, create a sleek centre part and mist roots with evo helmut light to set part.

    Step 3: Set a straightener to 150 degrees (Cloud Nine Original Iron) and straighten large horizontal sections of the hair to create a smooth texture. Put a slight bevel on the ends but not a curl.

    Step 4: Using your dressing brush, brush hair into the palm of the hands at the nape of the neck. Tuck hair behind the ears.

    Step 5: Begin a fishtail braid and be sure to keep braid tight at the nape of the neck.

    Step 6: Continue down the length of the hair, keeping the fishtail braid tight and flat. Secure at ends with a thin elastic band and wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic to hide and secure. Set band of hair with evo helmut light to finish.

  • evo Fabuloso Pro gains the Tracey Cunningham tick of approval

    evo Fabuloso Pro set off on yet another whirlwind  international launch at the start of the year, this time taking it across the pond to North America. Not to mention landing itself a place in the salon of celebrity stylist, Tracey Cunningham. The tour branched out across Canada down to Idaho, Washington, Georgia, Alabama  then picked up speed in the infamous NYC which hosted the ever successful evo International Ambassador Training event.

    These amazing launches received great momentum with some of the biggest names in the US, not only with Tracey Cunningham but also  Beth Minardi. Beth, who is one of NYC’s top colour experts, stylist to the stars and inspirational educators has a huge following in the US and has worked with the likes of Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz. Tracey Cunningham with her unparalleled reputation  also has a huge A-list celebrity client base and is highly regarded as the driving force behind her amazing successful salon Méche in Beverly Hills, which is salon hotspot for the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Stone and Drew Barrymore to name a few. With both stylists welcoming Fabuolso Pro with open arms, you might expect to see your favourite celebrity's using it in the very near future.

    Both of theses amazing colourists are now on board with the evo Fabuloso Pro range, and are using it in their salons. With such highly regarded names now using the range it’s gaining a huge following across Manhattan, Boston, LA, San Francisco, Calagary, Edomonton and Vancouver, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the year.

  • 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

    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

  • The Haircare Australia Prestige Partner New York Study Tour Feb'14

    The Haircare Australia Prestige Partner New York Study Tour once again saw ten lucky stylists experience the very best of all things fashion and culture. From shooting looks for Cloud Nine to working behind the scenes at sass+bide, this lucky group had a truly once in a lifetime experience.

    The Tour kicked off with a two day shoot for Cloud Nine’s 2014 education looks, where the stylists were given the rare opportunity to be taught the ins and outs of leading a successful photo-shoot from our very own Lauren McCowan.

    Renya Xydis took the group through a Cloud Nine workshop, working closely with the team, teaching them not only new skills but also  giving insight into what it takes to be a successful business and salon owner. The group were then given the chance to really get their hands dirty with all things evo, learning the revolutionary evo cutting technique and then getting to experience evo Fabulouso Pro.
