Every day, thousands of people walk in and strut out of salons feeling more confident. We believe that confidence is a force for good and we want to put it into action. We also believe education is a powerful pathway to help level the playing field for all, helping people to move boldly forward to where they want to go. The Moroccanoil Cultivating Confidence Scholarship intended to provide an educational opportunity for all qualified applicants to help offset the cost of tuition.

Inspired by the Mediterranean, the Moroccanoil brand comes to life through our iconic turquoise packaging and signature fragrance, for an exotic experience that transports the senses. Our first product, the original Moroccanoil Treatment, pioneered oil-infused haircare and created the worldwide buzz on argan oil. At the heart of our brand is the stylist community that inspires us to create effective and easy-to-use products. And today, our goal remains unchanged: to continue pioneering innovation in beauty, while using our platform to make a difference, through our PETA Beauty Without Bunnies Certification as a cruelty-free brand, certifying that we never test our products on animals, as well as other efforts to give back.
Moroccanoil hair and body products are available at fine salons and retailers, spas, and online in over 80 countries worldwide. Visit us at Moroccanoil.com. For daily inspiration, follow @Moroccanoil on TikTok and Instagram; subscribe to our beauty tutorials on YouTube, and find us on Facebook!
