I read yesterday that a legend in the beauty world has passed. Horst Rechelbacher was the founder of Aveda, but so much more than that. He was revolutionary, a genius, an inspiration. I had the luxury of working with him last summer on a photo shoot for his newest line, Intelligent Nutrients. I like to learn about people, so before the shoot I did a little research and learned a lot about Mr. Rechelbacher and I was immediately intrigued with his history, ambitious nature and his grand company. Not only does he 'do hair' but he works with hospitals and is very involved with the research that goes into all his products. I feel very fortunate that I was able to meet this man and work with him and his team (including his very kind kids). My heart goes out to all.
