"Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership  and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world."

 

Horst Rechelbacher, Founder

Owner Stylist & Master Colorist

Bronwyn has been a hair stylist since 1997 in the Rochester, NY area. She was introduced to Aveda in the very beginning of her career when she started at Chi Wah Salon as Chi Wah’s apprentice. Since then she has never considered another company that aligns with her passion the way Aveda does.  Bronwyn has always had an interest in caring for others doing hair and makeup for friends and family. While in high-shool her guidance counselor suggested going to EMCC to pursue cosmetology. Her passion for doing hair only truly sparked when she would watch other stylists’ master their craft, what an amazing power they all have just by transforming cuts, colors and make up! But the true bonuses for her are the connections she made with guests during her career.

 

Over the years, Bronwyn has attended many Aveda classes to further her education and skill set. In 2013, she participated in Master Colorist training with Aveda and has also attended Aveda Congress Festivals including training with Jon Reyman, Aveda’s guest artist and Lead Stylist for Fashion Week held in NYC, Paris and London.

 

Empowering others through support, leadership, connection and passion for life is Bronwyn’s philosophy.  On her days off you can find her exploring with her two daughters Penny, 4 and Isabel, 2.  Four-wheeling in Branchport, NY with her husband, Joey and in the winter you can catch her skiing Bristol Mtn.
