        Horst M. Rechelbacher
        Aveda Corporation founder Horst M. Rechelbacher has redefined the face of beauty
        worldwide. For nearly four decades, he has been a major, motivating force in hair care and

        Institutes, salons, spas, and Environmental Lifestyle Stores, the Aveda concept of beauty
        encompasses a complete system of care, using plant-based products, treatments and
        simple rituals to enhance appearance, well-being and the quality of life. In turn, this
        approach also advocates more environmentally responsible business practices and
