Taylor Vanoeffelen, Rockford, Mich.
As a child, Taylor saw how the salon her mom owned changed people’s lives, long before she began working at Douglas J. Aveda Institute. She also saw the tremendous generosity that exists within the salon environment. Today, Taylor continues to give back to an organization that supports individuals living with cancer. “Cancer can strip so much self-confidence and self-love and I love being part of helping someone look and feel better,” she remarks. “This industry is all about education and I never want to stop learning because cosmetology is my passion.”
