Having received the Elle Beauty Genius Award in 2017 for his continued influence on the hair industry, Daniel Moon is acknowledged as one of the top colorists in the world. Known for his diverse palette and application methods, his work has impacted an entire generation’s sense of beauty. Moon perfected his craft over many years of working in the top salons of Los Angeles, establishing an artistic sensibility that has led him to work with many of the world’s top designers and celebrities.
From his genre-defying use of spray techniques to the formulation of his own innovative glitter gel, Major Moonshine, Moon’s influence is felt from color to product. Many trends can be sourced to his natural propensity for identifying culture in its nascent stage, and his ability to analyze opportunities for innovation. His early years were spent as a US Marine, an experience that he attributes much of his tenacity to. HAIR is Moon’s first signature salon, setting a new standard of luxury, comfort, and transformation for the whole industry.
Moon has consulted with brands such as L’Oréal, Calvin Klein, Sephora, Matrix, Bernhard Willhelm, and Pravana. His work is regularly seen on many artists throughout the entertainment industry such as Kanye West, Nicole Richie, Zoe Kravitz, Madonna, Kylie Jenner, Jared Leto, A-Trak, Katy Perry, Halsey, Twin Shadow, Grimes, the Madden Brothers, Hayley Kiyoko, War Paint, Ariel Pink, and the Flatbush Zombies.
