Van Council

While earning a living mowing lawns in 1975, Van Council was inspired by Warren Beatty playing a hairdresser in the film Shampoo. Fascinated by beauty and style trends, Van signed up for cosmetology school, then opened his first salon in 1984. As an Aveda Global Master today, Van sets industry-leading trends. From winning coveted NAHA hairstyling and makeup awards and earning Top Salon designations from Salon Today and Modern Salon, to being recognized with lifetime achievement awards from Aveda and the Art and Fashion Group, Van brings innovation and excellence to everything he does.
