Marie Cain for Goldwell Professional created two looks for the runway. The first with a low pony tail that was twisted into a knot at the base of the head and fastened with a pin. The other look was a plait at the back and fastened with a buckle – the plait flat and floppy to create a worn in look. Marie used Goldwell StyleSign Power Whip generously from roots to ends and hair dried back off the face and then a flat iron used to add in some movement. The plait or the pony tail created and then finished with Goldwell StyleSign Unlimitor or Goldwell StyleSign Magic Finish.

Teaming up with designers Dan Single and Bambi Northwood-Blyth, Hair Director Lauren McCowan for evo hair created enviably cool ‘bed hair’ for the launch of P.JAMÉ at Ivy Penthouse.

“The look needed to be equally as playful and seductive as the prints and designs throughout the collection. For the girls, we created voluminous ‘bed hair’ waves, building height with evo’s Tyler Teasing Brush, Builder’s Paradise and Haze. For the guys we went for an ‘I woke up like this’ look. Keeping it quite relaxed, we enhanced their hairs’ natural texture by adding structure and volume with evo’s Haze and Builder’s Paradise.” said Lauren McCowan

Nigel Stanislaus created a chic and effortless look focused on complexion. Using Maybelline NY Dream Velvet Foundation as a base with
Maybelline NY Master Hi-Light in Deep Bronze used to to create a glow on the cheek and Maybelline Terra Sun Bronzer swept over the forehead right around under the jaw line. Maybelline NY Color Drama Lip Pencil – Nude Perfection patted onto the lips and Maybelline NY Blushed Nudes Palette washed over the eyes. Nails were painted with Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Latte.




Inspired by the architectural lines of the C/MEO 2016 Resort collections, Lauren McCowan for evo created two complimentary up-do’s for the brands second showcase on the MBFWA catwalk. Both looks were modern and wearable, highlighting the detailed necklines, collars and pastel colour palette in C/MEO’s ‘Momentum and Dimension’ collections.


”We worked closely together to define the C/MEO woman and how we would translate this throughout the runway hair looks. With the collection being an abstract take on classics, we decided there was no more classic hair-do than a bun, so we worked to deconstruct the traditional bun in a way that was worthy of the catwalk but still modern and wearable. The end result was slightly dishevelled but completely wearable look created with the magic of evo styling products (evo water killer, evo haze, evo builders paradise).” McCowan says






Nigel Stanislaus created a fun and cool and slightly alternative look for Emma Mulholland. He created a beautiful base using Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation and then used the Maybelline New York Nudes Eyeshadow Palette to contour the face using the taupes. Brows were filled with Master Brow Pro Palette. Lastly, Baby Lips applied on all the areas where glitter was being added. Nails were also glittering using Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Polish in Glitter It.
