    petergrayIn the latest copy of Harper's Bazaar (September 2016 issue) you'll find the stunning work of key contributor Peter Gray, Moroccanoil Ambassador.

    Inspired by texture and contrast, Gray's styling features in "Contrasting Views" (from page 226).

    Do you have any tips for guys with thick unruly hair?

    Generally, this hair type tends to be dry and can get wiry and difficult to style - it also can get oily at the roots and dry on the ends. Using a great cleansing shampoo [try evo normal persons] to activate the scalp, remove build up and cleanse out dirt and oils is paramount, followed by a hydrating and smoothing conditioner that will moisturise and shut the cuticle.

    Your top hair cut recommendations?

    For easy maintenance, a good haircut is designed to work with your texture, thin out any excess and bring out the best of your hair - and it doesn't need to be expensive either.

    Thick hair? You cannot get away with random hack jobs for haircuts unless you want to spend all your time fighting to style it. Invest in a good hair cut.

    Dense hair? Best to look at tailored pompadours and undercuts that leave you looking sharp but work with some length on the top for shape.

    Curly hair? You can get away with more length as long as it is cut to bring out your curl - do not let a razor or thinning shears on your hair as it will exacerbate the frizz and make it more high maintenance to control.

    What are your main styling tips?

    Styling product that can go into your hair wet and dry will help control hair as soon as you step out of the shower and is an easy way to style unruly hair without taking up too much time [try Moroccanoil Original Treatment]. A good styling cream will also condense the hair and shut the cuticle without a heavy or greasy effect . A good curl control product or foundation cream [try evo liquid rollers] gives a great base to either air dry the hair, dry into shape or diffuse dry. You can then use a finishing product for your desired texture. Think a foundation product for wet to dry to set the tone and a finishing product for when the hair is dry to lock it in [try evo shebang-a-bang].

    Do you have any tips for guys on how to use hair tonics?

    Ask your barber or stylist, every hair is unique and you have to choose the product that fits your hair. The beauty of the Reuzel Tonics is that there is one for every hair and scalp type out there [try Reuzel Hair Tonic or Reuzel Grooming Tonic].

    What tips do you have for removing product build-up and degreasing the hair?

    If you want to remove the build-up of pomade and oil-based products use the new Reuzel Daily Conditioner on dry greasy hair, then add the Reuzel Scrub Shampoo and a little water, massage in, add water again, massage, rinse and wash with the Reuzel Daily Shampoo.

    Favourite product for perfect hair every day?

    Sea salt spray due to its ease of use, the texture it creates and the hold. It’s great for any type of hair and still easily malleable.

    What is your top tip to get the best shave every time?

    Keep an eye on the direction of the growth of hair. Make sure you shave with the grain not against. Keep the face hot and wet constantly.

    How regularly should you aim to visit a barber?

    For hair shorter than 1 inch on the sides I would recommend 3 weeks or less and anything between 1-3 inches then I recommend 4-6 weeks. I'd rarely advise longer than 6 weeks to keep up appearances.

    What is your favourite product right now?

    My favourite product would have to be evo haze, but if I could pick two, it would be evo salty dog with haze, best combo!

    One piece of men's grooming advice you always give your clients?

    Blowdry your hair into the shape that you desire [try evo mister fantastic] and then put product in. Putting product in wet hair is a really common problem amongst guys, they don’t seem to realise that as the hair dries it loses formation.

  • Moroccanoil: The Oil That Started It All

    Carmen Tal is one of the most inspirational and influential women in the beauty business; the humble talent behind the product that pioneered a new oil-infused category in the beauty industry: Moroccanoil.

    Lucky enough to speak with the stylish yet effortlessly chic Carmen, we share with you what it’s like to be so hands-on with a brand that now resides in more than 60 countries across the globe.

    How did Moroccanoil come to be?

    I was fortunate to discover an oil-infused treatment while traveling, which soon became our Moroccanoil Treatment. After experiencing dramatic results on my own hair, I embarked on a mission to bring this great product to the rest of the world.

    What is your favourite thing about the product that started it all?

    The results. They are truly transformative, and they’re the reason it’s become the essential foundation for hairstyling—and the one product no woman should be without.

    Who or what inspires the Moroccanoil brand?

    Moroccanoil creates products inspired by the needs of women, and strives to deliver formulas that are both simple and effective. All women simply want beautiful, healthy hair. With the demanding needs of home and work life, creating products that are easy to use is our priority.

    What keeps you so passionate and motivated?

    To be truly passionate about what you do, you must live your brand every day. Moroccanoil is a reflection of the exceptional results I myself expect from a beauty company as a consumer—this is the core of our success.

    Describe a day in the life of Carmen Tal?

    I wake up between 7:30 am and 8:00 am. I meditate first thing in the morning for 20 minutes. After that, I pick out my outfit for the day. I have a trainer that I work out with 3 times a week and on my own twice a week. When I don’t work out, I like to walk for at least 1 hour.

    I’m hands-on in all the departments at Moroccanoil— product development, education, PR and design—and I also happen to be the head of marketing. A typical day at work consists of meeting with the different division heads, which can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Those meetings are touch-bases to go over the projects everyone is working on; they take up most of my day.

    After work, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking time to relax with a good book or watch some TV. I also enjoy speaking with my friends over the phone. If I didn’t get a chance to go through all my emails during the day, I take the time to get back to everyone. One or two times a week I will go out to dinner with either friends or my children.

    People would probably be surprised that I have a very slow pace of life. I have learned the importance of making time for oneself and that my home is as important as my work. The key is moderation in everything that you do.

    What is your favourite aspect of working with such an amazing brand?

    My favourite part is my daily interaction with creative people of all different backgrounds and opinions inside and outside of my company. I love putting great ideas together and making them happen!
