Bastian Casaretto

Aveda’s Artistic Director for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Berlin based Bastian has hairdressing in his blood. He started at the age of 11 working in his father’s salon - sweeping, making coffee and helping out - until he was 15 when he began an official apprenticeship. Nineteen months later he joined Vidal Sassoon spending two years in London and thirteen years in Frankfurt.
 During a year off for travelling, Wella Professional offered him the position of Artistic Director for Germany Austria and Switzerland where he ran classes, performed session work and put together training programmes. He jumped at the chance to join Aveda as it enabled him to concentrate more on actually doing hair. Bastian now spends at least one day in the salon, which allows him to stay in touch with trends and maintain a salon approach with his students. The rest of the time he spends on planes, in classrooms, in the photo studios around Europe and performing session work including New York, Paris and Berlin Fashion Weeks working with Odile Gilbert and desingers such as Frida Weyer, Black Soma, Esther Perbandt, Perret Schaad, Vladimir Karaleev, Patrick Mohr and Meissen Couture. Recent travels have taken him to Istanbul and Moscow and the USA for Aveda's seminal Congress show.
