CTONICS: The People Behind

CAMPBELL MCAULEY was born in Australia and at the age of 14 began the four-year apprenticeship required in Australia to become a certified hairdresser. At 16, the prodigious stylist-to-be was named Australian Junior Champion. At 18, Campbell went to London where he trained at the Vidal Sassoon salon. His editorial career in film, television, and print magazines began by working with Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes on the UK press and premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet.”

Campbell then moved to the palm latitudes of Hollywood where his first US job found him reunited with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as his female co-star Kate Winslet, on the blockbuster film Titanic. Winslet has remained a client since, and been joined by many of her peers—Claire Danes, Cameron Diaz and Kyra Sedgwick among them—as well as the cream of the new breed, including Rachel Bilson, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Katherine Heigl.

Personally, a growing interest in alternative medicine, healing and spirituality was developing alongside Campbell’s professional career. “True beauty,” opines McAuley, “is an enhancement of each woman’s own unique natural beauty. To manifest that beauty as a hair stylist is my goal, as well as my privilege.” To see Campbell’s editorial work go to: Campbell McAuley
