Goldwell partners with the NRL Dally Ms Style Suits

On the 27th of September, Goldwell proudly served as the official hair partner for the NRL Dally Ms Style Suite. This marked Goldwell's second year supporting this stylish event, where they crafted high-glamour looks for female NRLW players, as well as wives and partners.

The Dally M Awards stand as the crowning event in the NRL Calendar, celebrating the outstanding performers of the premiership season. Before the winners are revealed, a grand display of style takes place on the red (or, in this unique case, green Astro turf) carpet.

The Style Suite was hosted at the Pullman Sydney Hyde Park, while the awards ceremony itself unfolded at the WINX Stand within the Royal Randwick Racecourse. Players and their partners sought out the Style Suite for hair, makeup, and fashion styling. Here, they left behind their mouthguards and footy shorts, embracing smokey eyes, beaded gowns, and contemporary up-dos.

The Goldwell Glam squad comprised four skilled stylists: Lauren Griffiths, co-owner of Indie Sky + Co; Sophie Reeves from Salon Sessions; Milly Cawthorn from Willomina; and Mikaela Johns from Helens Hair Artistry. This team collaborated with each guest to craft a personalized look that perfectly complemented their gown and reflected their individual style.

Textured high ponytails, meticulously styled Hollywood waves, elegantly undone updos, and stylish middle parts were among the highly sought-after choices. Lauren Griffiths commented on the experience, saying, "It was such a fun day, seeing the ladies embrace their glamorous side. We saw lots of textured styles, and waves are always in demand. Goldwell’s Creative Texture Dry Boost played a pivotal role, serving both as a styling and finishing spray, alongside Perfect Hold Magic Finish Lustrous Finish Hairspray."

Knights superstar Kalyn Ponga stormed home to win the 2023 Dally M Medal from Warriors veteran Shaun Johnson by just one point. Also from the Knights, Tamika Upton won the NRLW Dally M Medal to cap her stunning season.


Garnier Australia partners with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation to help restore one of Australia's natural wonders of the world

L’Oréal Groupe’s leading natural mass-market beauty brand, Garnier and globally recognised environmental charity, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation have announced a multi-year partnership to support the survival of the world’s largest coral reef system, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The partnership with the Foundation will see Garnier help to restore damaged areas of the Great Barrier Reef through coral planting. Specifically, Garnier will help the Foundation plant corals on the Great Barrier Reef, with the goal of dispersing up to 500,000 baby corals during the 2023 coral spawning season.

Garnier is on a mission to create a positive impact by leading the way towards more sustainable beauty for all, with maximum efficacy and reduced impact on the planet. The partnership with the Foundation is one of the ways the global beauty brand is working to give back to the environment. Garnier Australia and New Zealand Marketing Director, Alexander Bachem, said the brand is extremely proud to play its part in the survival of this national icon. “In Australia, we have made it our mission to help clean up and protect our treasured beaches and oceans, through our ongoing partnership with the likes of Take 3 For The Sea and now the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. We’re so proud to be partnering with the Foundation, to help restore one of our most treasured wonders of the world. “As one of the world’s biggest mass beauty brands, at Garnier we believe our sustainability commitments shouldn’t just stop at our products. We feel a strong responsibility to give back to the environment, beyond what’s in our immediate control,” continued Mr Bachem.

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is the lead charity for the Reef, formed in response to the first mass coral bleaching of the Reef in 1998. The collaborative organisation raises funds, invests in innovative ideas, and designs scalable conservation programs in Australia to help to protect the Reef which stretches over an area of approximately 348,000 square kilometres. Our partnership with Garnier will have a significant impact on the Reef, not only through the growth of new corals but also by helping to restore critical reef habitats for threatened species. “The Foundation is using innovative, world-leading solutions to conserve and restore the Reef and partnering with brands such as Garnier will help to deploy these solutions at scale to help the future of the Reef, today,” Ms Marsden added. The Plant A Coral campaign will be exclusively available at all Coles stores nationally. Commenting on the partnership, Coles General Manager of Sustainability Brooke Donnelly said she was pleased to see other organisations invest in strengthening the regeneration and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef.
