Book 1: Chapter 9

Customizing your Haircuts Using Morrocco Method Lunar Chart


People from countries with cultures rooted in the natural cycles of the moon and seasons are astonished at our habit of having haircuts without regard to the lunar phase. To them, we might as well be planting seeds in the winter and expecting a bountiful harvest. Our ancestors learned over centuries that planting on moon cycles optimizes growth of both plants and human hair dramatically.


Our body is a microcosm of the earth. Like this planet’s varietal vegetation — algae, seaweed, plants, flowers and trees — our body has similar diversified vegetation in our pubic hair; facial, eyebrow and eyelash hair; torso and appendage hair and, of course, our Crowning Glory.


Just as there is an “ideal” time to plant, weed, reap, spread compost, there are best times to cut or “harvest” hair. Aligning haircuts to the ebb and flow of Lunar Cycle astrology has a very powerful effect on the growth and maintenance of our hair.


According to the ancient wisdom of Shamans who consider hair a sacred part of the body, there are five elements each month to consider. Specific times enhance hair strength, thickness, length, strengthening of its roots and esthetic beautification — provided we cut on the appropriate days. Otherwise, the remaining, inauspicious days of that month will actually retard the growth of hair.


Knowing retardation periods of hair growth can be a useful tool for our hair care as well. “Harvesting” unwanted hair at this time is ideal, the perfect time to pluck eyebrows or shave legs. The hair will grow back more slowly, if at all.


Having your hair cut using the 13 Moon Lunar Cycle provide you with excellent natural, holistic hair care. Using wisdom of the Shamans enhanced by modern scientific knowledge and over 40 years of personal research and experience, Anthony Morrocco created Morrocco Method International, incorporating an outstanding system of Lunar Hair-Care Astrology to help you achieve Strengthening, Thickening, Lengthening, Root Work and Beautifying of your hair!


If you are experiencing hair thinning and loss, his lunar chart shows you specific days each month when cutting your hair will strengthen and thicken it, stimulating roots and regenerating your hair.


Anthony reveals exact days that hold maximum astrological powers for your hair on his Lunar Hair Chart, that he shares freely on


He guides your work on a particular facet of your hair every month. Focusing on hair loss or thinning, for example, you follow his lunar chart dates for your haircut to Strengthen hair.  During the following month, trim at the indicated time that stimulates Thickening of your hair. During the third month, arrange your cut to stimulate follicles and hair roots using Root Work dates.


For the goal of longer hair, use the lunar chart to alternate Lengthening and Root Work dates, one each month. To thicken hair, simply alternate a Thickening cut one month with Root Work the next. Those interested in enhancing hair waves and manageability should alternate with Beautifying and Root Work trim dates. Numerous combinations are possible depending on individual needs.


The 13 Moon Lunar Cycle occurs fully each month, creating all five options so that you can cut your hair to lengthen, thicken, strengthen, do root work or beautify in any calendar month you choose. It is the position of the sun and moon, along with certain closely guarded Shamanic secrets passed down through the ages, that determines the optimum days to have your haircuts.


Some people believe a full moon is invariably the most powerful time to cut hair. This is not always true. There are times, in fact, when doing that is counterproductive. The same goes for keying trims to a waning moon. With Anthony’s proven lunar haircutting chart, all confusion ends. As long as you base your cuts on the Chart, you will stay aligned to the best and greatest astrological power, enhancing your hair every time.

About the Author:

Anthony Morrocco (born May 4, 1943) is the founder and current President and CEO of Morrocco Method International, a hair care company specializing in all natural products.

Anthony Morrocco has, for over 40 years, carefully studied and practiced holistic hair care. His quest to find a naturally based treatment for hair and scalp problems began with his apprenticeship at world famous Kenneth’s, a posh New York salon, where his clients included  Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Mrs. Vincent Astor, Mia Farrow, Lauren Bacall, Joan Rivers, Faye Dunaway, Liza Minnelli, and numerous other celebrities.


For years, Anthony watched as the rich and famous walked into Kenneth’s with hair care problems and left with the same problems, only covered up with styles, perms, blow drying, gels, mousses, bleaches and chemicals. Anthony discovered that, regardless of the money spent on traditional hair care, the problems just didn’t go away. This realization inspired Anthony to create a new system of hair and scalp treatment that would have successful, long term results.


Now, after more than four decades of travel, research and experimentation, including his study of Chinese herbalism and acupressure under Bruce Lee’s master, Mr. Fung Yi of Peking and Dr. Cecilia Lu of Shanghai, Anthony has perfected a holistic program for women and men determined to make positive changes for healthier, more vibrant hair.
