Edwin Spreizer is founder and owner of akzente in Stuttgart.
I grew up in Graz as the son of a family of hairstylists, now in its third generation. As a teenager I discovered a passion for hairdressing. I finally settled in Stuttgart, but with many stops along the way in places such as Vienna, Paris, London und America. I have been managing AKZENTE since 1998. Being awarded the title of “AVEDA Earth Champion 2004” and the distinction of being ranked one of Germany’s top 50 hairstylists by ELLE in March 2005 have confirmed my belief in my work and my outlook.
Despite years of experience as a master stylist, I try not to take anything for granted; instead, I am always looking for ways to advance myself and my team. I share my knowledge with others by holding regular AVEDA seminars. I love working with hair and am thankful that I can do something that brings so much happiness to others and that is why I find working with people so fulfilling. A stylish hair cut that suits the client’s personal style, a satisfied client and a happy employee – these are the successes that I find exhilarating and that motivate me on a daily basis.
