Juliette den Ouden (known as the Hairdrtesser of the Year) started the JDO Academy in 2015 from the need to share her knowledge and experiences. With over 20 years of experience in the national and international Fashion & Beauty industry, she knows exactly what you need to grow.

JDO Academy has its own teaching program, developed by Juliette from her own vision and experience. The love and passion that Juliette has for her profession speaks for itself when you work with her. She sees the authentic properties and thus enhances your ultimate beauty. Without ever feeling like she’s done learning, Juliette keeps evolving by developing new trends and coming up with new creative concepts. You can also learn this through a self-developed training program by Juliette.

Anyone with creativity and passion is suitable to become a Hair & Make-Up Artist. A number of important factors play a role here, such as knowing and mastering the basic elements, analyzing and dissecting the techniques used in an existing look, recognizing the correct lines and shapes and what you can do with them.

The classes at JDO Academy are small and there is a lot of room for individual attention for both professional and personal development. This ensures that everyone can start at their own level and has their own learning curve.

Within JDO Academy there are many options for further development; in addition to the courses, you can also follow masterclasses and workshops lasting several days.

Besides passing on her love for the profession through the JDO Academy, Juliette is the ambassador of Hairdresser Without Borders. This trains women in developing countries to offer them a better future by teaching the women her skills. This offers the women the opportunity to work, but building more self-confidence also plays a major role.

In addition to her work for Hairdressers Without Borders, Juliette also advocates for the beauty of vitiligo and albinism and received a press award for this project, which exhibited in Miami.

During her career, Juliette has received 18 awards and more than 30 nominations for her work. She is in the Top 10 of Best Makeup Artist in the World, took third place at Men’s AIPP Hairdressers Worldwide, and recently she become the Hairdresser of the Year at the Coiffure Awards.

JDO Academy is part of the JDO Group. This creative platform consists, in addition to the Academy, of the following divisions:
– JDO Salon
– JDO Talent Agency
– JDO Management
