Pete finds inspiration in his family, architecture, music and travel and applies it to his teaching, which drives him to be at the pinnacle of new techniques that will help transform the world of hair.
For over 20 years, Peter has been inspiring clients as well as hair stylists with his passionate approach to hair and his technical expertise.
Peter began taking an interest in hair at the age of 10 while watching his father cut and style clients on Saturdays. Amazed at how his father could transform not only hair but the moods of each client embedded the seed of passion that has grown into a fulfilling career, branding Peter as one of the most respected and artistic hair stylists in the northwest suburbs.
Teaching and inspiring have driven Peter’s ambition to be at the pinnacle of new techniques that will help transform the world of hair. After quickly positioning himself as a top stylist and educator at Mario Tricoci Hair Salon in the mid '90s, Peter set his sights on becoming an educator and sharing his wealth of knowledge that established his brand amongst the industry elite.
To this day, Peter takes every step to personally train every stylist that works with him, ensuring client satisfaction above and beyond the most discerning taste. Rest assured at Peter DeLuca Salon your hair will reflect years of technical precision, artistic dedication and modern movement that will change the way you feel about your hair and your salon.
My family, modern architecture and music and travel are my top inspirations. Abstract shapes always spark my mind with ideas for new haircuts. Frank Stella (abstract artist), Tim Hartley (former Sassoon Art Director), creative technology and creative like-minded peers in the industry are my inspirations as well.
Underground hip-hop (De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest), acid jazz, soulful house, dance music and even a little trap! I also love classic '70s and '80s.
I’m a part-time award-winning DJ. You can find me at various clubs in and around Chicago monthly as well as teaching at the world renowned Scratch Academy Chicago.
