Who Are The Wella Passionistas?

These social media savvy hairdressers and content creators are true changemakers in their communities, supporting their clients with inspired and trendsetting transformations. Wella Passionistas are carefully selected for their innovative color work, social media skills and commitment to advancing client services, technique and artistry.
Colorists Cameron Kepford (@cameronkepford), Cassandra Foher (@cassandra_foehr) and Sydney Oliveira (@sydniiee) are some of the longest standing members of the Wella Passionistas community, which originally softly launched in April 2018. “Being a part of this group of artists has given me the opportunity to engage with new, like-minded individuals who have the same fire for our industry,” says Sydney. “It has also opened doors to having conversations on deeper meaningful social topics that influence our community. We are more than just hairdressers.”

More On The Passionistas Community
Throughout 2020, the Passionistas community has come together to share resources while navigating this uniquely difficult situation for beauty professionals caused by COVID-19 and nationwide salon closures. The Passionistas have also used this time as an opportunity for increased virtual community events led by Wella Brand Ambassadors, top artists and educators.
Most recently, Wella Professionals North America Brand Ambassador Briana Cisneros (@brianacisneros) and Global Creative Artist Sonya Dove (@sonyadove) led a seminar sharing tips and tricks on incorporating new Wella Professionals Color Touch shades into a color service.
Wella Senior Marketing Manager Becky Godlove said, “Our Wella Passionistas team has grown into a vibrant community over the last three years. These stylists are some of the most creative and passionate individuals, and Wella Professionals is honored to work beside them every day and be part of their artistic journeys.”
