STYLIST: Paloma Rose Garcia for Cloud Nine

SHOW: Shakuhachi

VENUE: The Cargo Theatre, Overseas Passengers Terminal

DAY AND TIME: Wednesday, May 4th, midday

ABOUT THE COLLECTION: Block colours, beautiful lace and 60’s inspired glam.

DESIGN INSPIRATION: “Block Party” was inspired by the glamorous jetsetters of the late 1960’s and 70’s from a Talitha Getty in Marrakesh to a young Bridget Bardot in San Tropez. The show featured iconic poolside Hollywood images taken by the late Slim Aaron. We wanted to build a collection of stories that included luxury combined with new on trend styles, so whether you were feeling sophisticated or more bohemian it could be combined to make a statement.

DESIGNER QUOTE: “Hair and makeup we feel is imperative for the show to enhance the look of the collection just like it is in any woman’s everyday life, we were wanting a really clean low pony tail which was over the ear and textured.”

THE HAIR LOOK:  A modern take on a 60’s inspired Bridget Bardot low ponytail. Using a low heat with the Cloud Nine Wide iron, which created a really natural bend through the hair to project a matt, raw and fluffy textured finish.


  • Create a clean, centre part.
  • Mist a sea salt spray through the hair and blow dry in using your fingers to create a matt, fluffy-like texture.
  • Starting at the nape, take horizontal sections and using the Cloud Nine Wide Iron, create loose, natural waves through the hair. To do this, clamp the iron vertically to the roots (cord facing sky), rotate it one turn (180 degrees) and glide it through to the roots. TIP: holding the iron vertically will ensure you keep and maintain length in the style.

  • Using your fingers, lightly rake hair towards the nape, leaving hair to fall over the ears and secure with a tie. The position of the pony gives a 60’s feel with the texture creating a modern finish.
  • To create the wispy static finish in the ponytail, we used a unique technique by rubbing a deflated balloon across the hair.
  • Mist style with light hold hairspray to complete the look.

PRODUCTS: Cloud Nine Wide Iron, RRP is $270. Stockist number 1300 C9hair.
