Wella Professionals Announces Artistic Manager for The Studios
The Wella Studios, a place where hairdressers come to refine their skills and push their limits, has a new leader—Diego Raviglione will be joining the Wella Studio Team as their new Artistic Manager.
In his new role, Diego will take The Studios to the next level creatively, technically and inspirationally. “Diego has been part of the Wella family for many years, as an educator and a Wella top artist; we are very excited to have him join our team full time, said Fabio Sementilli VP of Education for Wella, the Salon Professional Division of P&G. “With our tremendously talented Studio team, Diego will shape the future of advanced Education.”
Wella Education’s motto ‘Collaborate, Innovate and Accelerate’ rings true for Diego, a professional hairdresser and educator for over 27 years. Diego has been the Artistic Director for Bellus Academy for the past eight years, a Wella Top Artist for the last five and an advocate for advanced education. Diego draws his inspiration from youth culture, the mastery of technique and the ongoing quest to mature and evolve as a stylist.
As a Wella Top Artist, Diego’s work has been published in magazines such as Elle, Allure, InStyle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and Elle Girl, but more importantly he is well known within the industry as an inspirational figure to both professional and aspiring stylists. Diego was named “Mentor of the Year” in 2012 by Wella Professionals and guided Team I.C.A.N. – a group of emerging talent – to first place at the 2012 RAW competition and on to national recognition as up and coming young stylists. Diego is also a three-time recipient of Bellus Academy’s “Visionary Award,” an honor that celebrates his influence as the institution’s Artistic Director.
