“It’s important to let go, calm down, and get grounded. We need to listen to ourselves. When one becomes aware that our present-moment thoughts are not productive, one should simply let them go. Change a negative thought to a positive one.” - Horst Rechelbacher
Hello Everyone -
Above is a photograph of an amazing man, the founder of Aveda. Horst Rechelbacher was a big game changer in the beauty industry; he brought earth friendly production, products and even practices to salons all over the world. He was an environmentalist and was his passion grew everyday. Horst admitted to never being a good student, and that he never made it past the fourth grade. Horst loved working with his hands, and with this skill and passion he became a barbers apprentice at the age of 14. He then started to tour Europe and the Americas in the 1960's - teaching seminars and competed in styling circuits. He opened his own salon, Horst & Friends, in Minneapolis in 1965. That's when he started formulating shampoos in his kitchen sink mixing the best organic herbs and food.
Horst Rechelbacher launched Aveda Corp. in 1978, and never stopped working to perfect products. In 1997 he built Aveda into an international brand known for its eco-friendly practices and lush smelling products. He actually grew many of the ingredients on his 570-acre farm! He fought to make the products USDA-certified organic and safe enough to eat. Horst Rechelbacher left us at the age of 72 due to an illness. Horst Rechelbacher was a passionate, inspirational man and will be missed dearly. We love you.
