Get The Look | Cloud Nine Tools

Using the Cloud Nine Original Iron and  Micro Wand, Cloud Nine Ambassador, Renya Xydis creates two opposing, yet harmonious looks for the KitX Resort Collection.  The Original Iron was used to create a sleek androgynous look perfectly juxtaposed by wild, Helmut Newton inspired curls created with the Micro Wand.

”We wanted to create two looks that were completely different, yet worked so beautifully together. You have these big, untamed curls created with the Cloud Nine Micro Wand and then this straight and structured look created with the Cloud Nine Wide Iron. The two together, especially side-by-side work in perfect harmony with the clothes.” – Renya Xydis.

Sleek & Straight

Step 1 - UC 1. Prep hair with evo salty dog salt spray concentrating on the roots and crown area. Blow dry the hair smooth in sections using a round ceramic brush. Focus on lifting at the roots to create volume around the crown.
Step 2 - UC 2. Avoiding the top section, smooth hair with the Cloud Nine Wide Iron set at 175 degrees. Spritzing each section with a mist of evo love touch shine spray.
Step 3 - UC 3. Take the top section of the hair and clip it out of the way, apply evo gangsta grip boning resin to the first side section using a tint brush. Use a wide-tooth comb like evo roy wide-tooth comb to comb the hair into place, repeat on the second side.
Step 4 - UC 4. Remove the top section and apply evo gangsta grip bonding resin through the top of the head, again, combing with evo roy, retaining volume and lift through the crown. Clip each section into place and diffuse rotating hot/cold, hot/ cold to set the gel. Once dry, remove clips.


Untamed Curls

Step 1 - SS 1. Spray the hair with a light working hairspray like evo builders paradise and use the Cloud Nine Micro Wand to curl small sections of hair at a time. Pin each section to cool and set. As you move around the head, alternate the direction of the curls by wrapping the hair over and then under each time.
Step 2 - SS 2. Once every section has been curled, spray with hairspray to set. Once all the curls have completely cooled, remove each pin, loosen with your fingers.
Step 3 - SS 3. Comb through the curls with a wide tooth comb and style using your fingers for maximum volume.
