Aveda’s North America Artistic Team Adds Three New Directors

Just two months after the debut of its North America Artistic Team, Aveda has tapped Britt Dion, Anne Skubis and Brad Van Dyke to join as directors, alongside Dusty Rhode, Lupe Voss and Tatum Neil, forming a team of six experts in hairstyling, cutting, coloring, makeup, esthetics and social media.

The Aveda North America Artistic team is responsible for the educational advancements of the region, online and offline. They will work closely with the Global Artistic Team to create programs and content that cater specifically to North America.

In the coming months, Aveda plans to announce more directors for the new team. Each director will hire Artistic Team members to help deliver and execute the educational initiatives for the region. Auditions for the positions are open to all artists at Aveda-exclusive salons and will be announced in the upcoming weeks on avedapurepro.com.

Here’s a look at the new directors:
