Home' INSTYLE Magazine : INSTYLE JUL-AUG 2017 Contents MOROCCANOIL HAVE WELCOMED A new ambassador to the
haircare family, with celebrated hairdresser Peter Beckett now
on board. Peter has made a living out of creating cool, wearable
hair, and has travelled the world to do it, making him the ideal fit
Peter’s illustrious career began in Brisbane at TONI&GUY,
where he progressed to the roles of Art Director and Educator, and
propelled his career as a member of the Australian F.A .M.E . Team,
representing the team at Salon International in London. Peter then
relocated to London to join Brooks & Brooks as Lead Art Director
and Educator, taking his career to international heights.
The renowned session stylist has styled for the pages of Ha rp e r’s
BAZAAR, Elle, marie claire and more, as well as working on
campaigns for Roberto Cavalli, Charlotte Olympia, Levi’s,
Selfridges, Dove and Britain’s Next Top Model.
On the runway, Peter has been backstage at London and
Australian Fashion Weeks for shows such as Burberry, J.W.
Anderson, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen and Gucci,
and has boasted celebrity and model clients like Ellie Goulding,
Rita Ora, Behati Prinsloo, Poppy Delevingne, Nicole Scherzinger,
Natalie Dormer, Demi Lovato, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Atomic
Kitten and The Sugababes.
Beyond his editorial and business success, Peter is involved in
philanthropic pursuits, notably representing the Royal Mencap
Society by styling hair for disabled children.
Peter discovered Moroccanoil while working in London,
and was drawn to its innovative brand approach and u nique
argan-infused haircare and styling concept. Peter relocated
back to Australia in 2015, and has since advanced his career, and
furthered his relationship with Moroccanoil, on home soil. His
ambassadorship for the brand was the next natural step.
“I love the brand because it’s honest,” Peter said. “It does
exactly what it promises to do, and it sums up the kind of work
I do as a stylist—beautiful and lu xurious with a bit of sex appeal.
Looking for the next adventure excites me in my life and work; not
knowing what’s arou nd the corner is what inspires me.”
In Peter’s new role, he has been at the forefront of debuting an
all-new cutting-course to Moroccanoil’s already varied education
offering. The course is built around innovative techniques that
break classic rules to save time in the salon and deliver editorially-
based, modern results.
“Its useable salon-friendly styles that people are taking back
and they can use as soon as they get back to the salon floor, it’s a
very approachable and versatile way of cutting hair,” Peter said.
“It’s a new way of cutting hair, rather than everything being
so classical and technical, it’s more editorial and wearable. The
way we’ve been slightly changing cutting hair is a lot more to
do with how hair has been styled with textures, volume and
looseness in a contemporary way. The cutting technique really
complements that styling so it’s a really thought out process from
start to finish.”
The course takes hairdressers of varying experience levels out
of the salon for a one day class led by Peter and centred on six
different haircuts that work across various hair lengths, different
styles and every colour. Aside from that, the brand trains its
impressive group of educators and innovates their techniques all
together, before offering personalised education in every state,
where educators come into the salon and teach these techniques in
a direct and salon-centric way.
Moroccanoil’s cutting education breaks classical rules of
cutting, using this as a basis but modernising it to make haircuts
more time-efficient and editorially-driven. The course changes
the attendees’ perception of cutting, even down to the way hair is
held during the process.
“It’s very versatile, the whole concept of the education is
interchangeable,” Peter said. “It’s not just for one look, especially
with cutting, it can be applied in so many different ways. It’s about
educating people to have a bit more control and creativity with
what they’re doing but in a really contemporary, wearable way.
It’s about doing it in a way that real people want to be cut and
