Cloud Nine teamed up with hair industry bible Creative HEAD magazine for a Christmas cover shoot with Angel taking the lead backstage on a collection of eight cool, easy going looks.

“These looks were inspired by the contrasting qualities of hair; keeping textures raw against more polished finishes. They were also heavily influenced by the Cloud Nine ‘Muses’ – girls we believe are strong, spirited, effortlessly cool and carefree, with a penchant for luxury”
– Angel Montague Sayers, Cloud Nine UK creative ambassador

Cloud Nine electrical tools are available in each of our salons and we offer a complimentary styling lesson with all tools purchased.

Here I created this ‘lived in’ low pony using my favourite curling wand by Cloud Nine and a cocktail of my hero products.

The ‘Curling wand’ is the newest edition to the Cloud Nine portfolio and alongside it’s multiple heat settings and glossed coating (giving serious shine) the width of the barrel gives a flawless shaped curl for any hair length.

Follow this simple step by step to recreate this look;

  1. Starting with freshly washed hair, spritz a generous helping of the Cloud Nine Amplify spray throughout and blast dry in.
  2. Once your hair is 100% dry; take small sections and spray the L’Oreal Professional, Techni-Art Constructor spray from root to tip. This will not only protect against the heat but will feel invisible on the hair and has a styling memory for longer lasting results.
  3. Wrap each section around the barrel of the Cloud Nine curling wand. Don’t worry if you can’t wind the very ends around as this adds to the natural effect.
  4. Leave each curl to cool without touching it and continue with the rest of the hair.
  5. Once the curls have cooled; tip your head upside down and shake out the shape.
  6. The Crepage De Chignon by L’Oreal Professional is an ideal blend of hairspray and dry shampoo for a texturing and mattifying result. Spritz this throughout and finish by defining the ends using the Techni-Art deviation paste.
  7. It’s important not to use a hairbrush at this point as it will ruin the texture you’ve created. Gather your hair gently with your fingers at the nape of the neck.
  8. Fasten this with a piece of elastic and tie a black ribbon around to add detail.

We have had teams working backstage at The Clothes Show for several years, it’s a really busy event and it’s great for stylists and apprentices to assist backstage and gain valuable session skills.


The Clothes Show is held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham each year and presents a line up of brands, celebrities and features the ultimate fashion experience including catwalks, trend presentations, shopping, hair and beauty demonstrations and talks from leading industry experts including our very own Angel Montague-Sayers who is the Cloud Nine Hair Ambassador.

Angel presented a quick tutorial once a day on how to get the perfect, salon quality, bouncy blow dry, using the Cloud Nine Wand and The O.

Angel presented a quick tutorial once a day on how to get the perfect, salon quality, bouncy blow dry, using the Cloud Nine Wand and The O.

Angel’s Top Tips:

1. Prep the hair with product before you start styling, her favourite is the TecniArt Constructor. This will give you the hair more texture and a better hold on the final effect.

2. Using heated curlers, curl the top of the head… this will create the effect of a big bouncy blow dry which you get in a salon. Then using a wand, curl the bottom sections of the hair, this will save time and convenience for you.

3. Scrunch every curl whilst it is still hot. This will set it in place and stop it from falling out.

4. When curling the front areas make sure you curl away from the face, it will be more flattering.

Cloud Nine were based on The Image Catwalk which showcases the ‘future of fashion’; graduates and final year students from top Universities and Colleges around the country present their collections on the stage which was hosted by reality TV stars Antonia O’Brien, Jamie Laing and Joey Essex.

The Graduate shows were presented every hour and were 30 minutes long and with just seconds to change into new outfits, the hair was bound to look a bit dishevelled. We sent our fantastic team to assist Angel backstage where they learnt new techniques to bring back to the salon.

The looks were created with only four simple L’Oreal Professionnel products:

  1. Volume Lift Mousse by TecniArt – Top Tip, you can never have too much of this! Spray on to roots section by section and blow dry in until the product is gone. This will give the roots some lift and add volume to create the bouncy blow dry.
  2. Constructor by TecniArt- spray all over the hair to give some texture to work with. When the hair is too smooth the curl will slip out so adding some constructor will help the curl not to drop.
  3. Crepage de Chignon, Wildstylers – this mineral powder fixing spray provides great texture and a volumising effect with a matte finish.
  4. Air Fix, by TecniArt – Spray all over finished hair to keep the style from dropping out.

Not only was Angel and her team backstage styling the hair for the Image Catwalk models but she was on hand to make the presenters stage ready too. Take a look at Angel backstage styling the hair of celebrities such as Jamie Laing, Binky Felsted, Antonia O’Brien, Lauren Pope, Carol Wright and Chloe Lewis.
