  • Moroccanoil Hits the Snow with Veuve Cliquot

    Moroccanoil took to the catwalk for famous shoe designer, Kathryn Wilson’s Spring ‘14 show at Veuve Clicquot in the Snow. Set at the stunning Heliworks Hanger, the show housed Queenstown’s fashion minded snow bunnies for it’s prestigious annual event.


    The renowned Danny Pato, Kathryn’s stylist of choice, drew his inspiration from Bridgette Bardot. The hair was all about volume, shine and glamour, the perfect complement to the 90’s point stiletto’s in cobalt blues, cerise pinks and acid yellows that graced the catwalk. 

    “It’s playful and glamourous, feminine and fun. This fem-lux style perfectly suits Kathryn’s latest collection and the glamour of Clicquot in the Snow” – Danny Pato of D&M, Moroccanoil Advocate.

  • Moroccanoil Media Makeovers

    On Thursday May 29, Australian beauty editors and media were treated to a glamorous session of one-on-one styling with none other than Moroccanoil's Global Team Educator, Violet Sainsbury. While educating each editor on the latest releases from the Moroccanoil range (Moulding Cream, Styling Gel, Heat Protect and Volumizing Mousse), Violet also styled each editor according to their personal preference and hair needs.

    Each session started off with a luxurious blow-dry, continuing on with an introduction to the relevant products suitable to the guests hair requirements. Curl Control Mousse, Frizz Control, and Luminous Hairspray were used as finishing touches so each editor could spend the rest of their working day with beautifully styled hair.

    Moroccanoil MakeoverGuests were treated to European pastries and French champagne while they chatted to Violet who further schooled them on the Moroccanoil brand and history while answering any of those burning beauty questions surrounding all things hair! Each editor was also able to have their photograph taken with Violet after the styling session and left with a bespoke gift bag of Moroccanoil products, personally chosen by Violet.

    Feedback from all editors was exceptionally positive. They left the styling session knowing more about the Moroccanoil brand and the products themselves. Having Violet educate each guest individually was highly beneficial and made quite an impact on a personal and professional level.
