As a third-generation stylist, Meredith Spiros was naturally called to the professional beauty and fashion industry at a very early age. She studied fashion design before entering cosmetology school and applied her eye for beauty and design with her philosophies and perspectives on trendspotting. From her very first stylist job at an Aveda concept salon, she was captivated by the Aveda philosophy, methodologies and in particular, the late Horst Rechelbacher’s, founder of Aveda Corporation, commitment to whole beauty. That commitment became Meredith’s passion to become an Aveda Purefessional.
Throughout her career with Aveda, Meredith has taught numerous hair cutting, styling and finishing workshops, and classes for thousands of aspiring professional stylists. She has trained with distinguished companies such as Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Tony and Guy and has worked alongside and educated with some of the finest stylists across the world such as Antoinette Beenders, Charlie Price, Riccardo Dinis, and Ted Gibson. Meredith has also appeared as a contestant on several fashion and hairstyling reality series such as Season Two of Bravo’s Shear Genius and Chicago’s local Ambush Makeover. Meredith has partnered on several high-fashion events including Chicago Fashion Week and her work has also been featured in publications such as Behind the Chair and 303 Magazine.
Currently, Meredith is the Creative Director for Salon V Chicago where she is passionate about growing, mentoring and educating the next generation of sophisticated beauty professionals.
