This week's Best Advice video features Diego Raviglione, Artistic Manager, The Wella Studios North America, who shares that a critical conversation early in life helped later propel him into a trajectory of success. 

A professional hairdresser and educator for over 27 years, Diego draws his inspiration from youth culture, the mastery of technique and the ongoing quest to mature and evolve as a stylist. Diego’s work has been published in magazines such as Elle, Allure, InStyle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and Elle Girl, but more importantly he is well known within the industry as an inspirational figure to both professional and aspiring stylists. Diego was named “Mentor of the Year” in 2012 by Wella Professional and guided Team I.C.A.N. – a group of emerging talent – to first place at the 2012 RAW competition and on to national recognition as up and coming young stylists.
