Aveda Artistic Team

Aveda names the six talented creative stylists joining its first UK & Ireland Artistic Team. During a tough audition process the stylists each presented a model to a panel of judges including world-renowned and award-winning stylist Antoinette Beenders, to win a place on the team. 

Antoinette Beenders, Aveda’s vice president and global creative director, will lead the newly-formed team through a two-year mentoring programme where they will enhance their skills. The art team will also create inspirational assets to inspire the network and represent the Aveda brand live on stage at large-scale events. What an exciting opportunity!
