I have had a love for fashion and beauty since I was a little girl,” confesses Tippi Shorter, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Textured Hair. “I was the one who did my friends’ hair and makeup before parties and events in high school!” Not only that, but she learned the ins and outs of the pro-beauty industry in a way that was much more front-and-center and less behindthe-curtain than many stylists in training: “I was a hair model for my stylist, and I loved being around beauty professionals and show environments,” Shorter smiles. “Just after high school, I had an opportunity to go to beauty school and immediately work with a well-established hairstylist in Los Angeles. A few years later, I moved to New York with the goal of working with celebrities.” The rest, as we know, is history!
