Aveda Guest Artist
Jon Reyman began his career with Aveda and has since traveled extensively as an educator developing curriculum across the world. He believes that the concepts of hairdressing and education should not be mutually exclusive and he sees his role as one to empower other hairdressers to discover and foster their own creative and technical abilities.
Jon began his career in 1996 at the premier Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After graduating, Jon worked for Juut Salons before spending time in Europe training with leading hairdressers in London and Paris. Upon his return to the United States, Jon completed the rigorous training program needed to become a Purefessional™ – the highest level of stylist within the Aveda network. While working in this capacity, he spearheaded the opening of the Van Michael Miami salon.
Jon returned to New York in 2002 to work as Master Stylist and Artistic Director to the Aveda Advanced Academy New York. As lead hair dresser, he has designed hair styles for fashion shows in New York, Miami, London, Seoul and Tokyo. Among his many clients are Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis, Vivienne Tam, Christian Siriano and GStar. Jon has been featured in major publications such as Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar.
The ability to use his technical and creative skills to empower people on an individual level is what drives Jon in his craft. He is known for his creative use of shape and texture while understanding the importance of ongoing change and evolvement – and the need to challenge boundaries. It is that same drive for constant change that makes Jon passionate about Aveda; that and the ability of the brand to successfully marry fashion and style while being consistent with its environmental mission. He currently resides in New York.
