    Edwin Neill Full Potential Awards

    The annual Edwin Neill Full Potential Competition was created to acknowledge the promise and potential of future professionals.

    A role model for all, Edwin Neill II not only believed in Aveda’s Mission but lived it on a daily basis. His greatest legacy will be his contribution to the youth of the beauty industry.

    Students from our Institute network schools compete as a team of three to exemplify collaborative work in color, styling, and makeup.

    “I love the chance to show what beauty means to me and to showcase others’ natural beauty through AVEDA. It is a privilege, and I am forever honored to be a part of it,” said Aveda Arts Birmingham student, Payton Harbin

    The teams create their look and finish with a photoshoot by Wes Kroninger and Wendy Hope. “I loved collaborating with the photographer on how to position the model & the model’s hair,” shared Aveda Arts New Orleans student Tevia Schroeder

    Recipients of this award have been chosen by a group of Aveda Network Leaders for their artistic accomplishments and commitment to making a difference in the beauty industry and the world.

    With creative direction by Tatum Neill and Traci Sakosits – four of our Aveda Arts locations placed 1st and 3rd in this year’s Full Potential Awards!

    “It felt so good to be recognized by my peers and to finally have a chance to show my work and grow,” said Aveda Arts New Orleans student, Brianne Cannatella.
