Rebecca Yarwood is a graduate of the Aveda Institute. She has worked behind the chair as a Master Stylist, and as a Stylist Educator and Trainer for more than twenty-five years.

As her career advanced, Rebecca developed a passion for the art of hair color and a love for teaching. This led her to a position with Aveda, where she served as Regional Hair Color Educator for thirteen years. Rebecca traveled the upper Midwest where she taught Stylists and mentored Stylist Educators in their own salons. Rebecca’s philosophy is that the teacher is also the student. She appreciates that through educating others, she continues to stretch her own skill-set and grow her artistry, and she gains satisfaction from sharing this insight with other Stylists.

Rebecca is thrilled to be joining the Rue 48 team, leveraging her many talents and experiences in her roles as Owner, Manager and Stylist for Rue 48 Salons.
