In an underground tunnel turned runway, Auckland based brand Wynn Hmalyn presented its Resort 23 collection at Sydney’s Central Station, paying homage to 90s blunt cuts and maximum shine, writes Ashleigh Matheson.

With the help of professional hair partner Wella and hair extensions from Amazing Hair Australia, the show was stunning parade of luscious, luminous locks.

Hair director Renya Xydis explained backstage that “we’ve used Wella EIMI Mistify Me and hair extensions for thickness, body and bounce.”

With a ‘90s, sporty’ brief to follow, Renya revealed that “modern, polished, yet gritty” was the aim for the hair. Key products included Wella’s EIMI Mistify Me, Pefect Setting  and Glam Mist shine spray.

Glossy, glammed up and grunge – an ideal aesthetic note at this year’s AAFW.

Get the look:

Step 1: Prep roots by layering with Wella EIMI Ocean Spritz Sea Salt Spray. This will give hair grit and texture.

Step 2: Blow-dry from the roots, pointing down to ensure you stretch the roots so that they sit flat to the head.

Step 3: Prep the hair for straightening with Wella EIMI Glam Mist.

Step 4: Straighten hair, curving your straightener under to curl the ends inwards.

Step 5: Spray with Wella EIMI Mistify Me Light for strong hold and shine while maintaining hair flexibility.

Step 6: For more body, add hair extension by Amazing Hair Australia.
