We appreciate our Aveda Artists every day of the year, and on April 30th — Stylist Appreciation Day— we will honor them wholeheartedly for their dedication to their guests and their craft, as well as to the Aveda Mission. In the spirit of this day, we shine a light on Naomi Dove, Director of Operations and Master Stylist at Haircutters in the Park in Litchfield Park, Arizona.
Known as the “Aveda It Girl,” Naomi delivers the ultimate service to her clients while further deepening her own self-awareness to live a full, serene life. This was most evident when this past fall, Naomi took an unforgettable journey to India, as part of the Inspire Greatness Study Abroad program. Thirteen people from Inspire Greatness were part of the adventure, led by Helga Hefner, Aveda Manager of Professional Spa Education. The trip focused on wellness and cleansing of the mind, body and spirit, through Panchakarma treatments, yoga and meditation.
Naomi captured her learnings in a journal documenting her trip to India. Here we share some of our favorite moments of wisdom that Naomi gleaned from this voyage.
