Aveda's European Education Specialist in Colour, Jo McKay
inherited her love of hairdressing from her great aunt and her mother, both of whom were also hairdressers in her native Australia.
Following her apprenticeship with her mother, Jo wanted to work in the best salon she could and opted for Next Haircutters in Canberra. During her time there she became involved in stage work and it was during a show that she saw Antoinette Beenders on stage in Sydney.
That event inspired Jo to move to London and work for Aveda. Nine years later, she’s still with the company and works throughout Europe checking credit consistency within education and regularly appearing on stage at shows, launches and events.
