Matthew Morris, a Colorado native, began his career as a makeup artist. With high demand for his celebrated work, it was only natural for Matthew to make the transition into hair styling. With a background in sculpture and design, Matthew found his favorite medium in beauty. Known for being a quick-change artist, Matthew has the ability to morph clients and models into endless looks with ease. With a deep understanding of classic beauty, technical excellence, and healthy hair, it was only natural for the world reknown luxury brand, Kerastase, to find Matthew to be their perfect match. As an Artistic Director for Kerastase, he collaborated with the company and the Kerastase T.E.C.H team was created, helping to pave way for Kerastase to provide advanced education. Kerastase chose Matthew because he is an artist, a designer, a talent, and a visionary. For those reasons, he now has the unique opportunity to institute new techniques for artists. Matthew doesn't choose to do it alone; he thrives on collaboration between creative minds.
Besides education, Matthew has been recognized as Editorial Stylist of the Year at the North American Hairstyling Awards, and his work has been seen in Vogue, Elle, InStyle, Allure, Modern Salon, Modern Salon China, and Launchpad. Whether leading a team or being part of it, Matthew has been a staple stylist for over 28 seasons backstage at New York Fashion Week for designers such as Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam, Alexander Wang and Rodarte. He is the principal stylist leading his own team at Aspen Fashion Week, and over the past few years has been working with Orlando Pita and his team at New York Fashion Week, the launch of VERSACE for H&M in New York, and the 2011 and 2012 Victoria's Secret annual runway show where he has styled the beautiful angels Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Candice Swanepoel. His expertise and style visions have established him in the industry as a true innovator and made him a popular choice among celebrities and designers.
America fell in love with Matthew after he starred on the hit reality show Bravos Shear Genius during its third season, but his real achievements he credits himself for are the rare opportunities he has had working with the most talented artists and designers in the industry who continue to inspire him. Matthew Morris is a driving force in the fashion and beauty industry, and will continue to influence these artistries in new innovative directions.
