Who is Vivienne Mackinder?  The Hairdressers’ hairdresser.

Vivienne Mackinder is the current Fashion Director for Intercoiffure America-Canada, and one of the most highly respected international leaders in the hairdressing profession today. In her work as Artistic Director for industry grand masters Vidal Sassoon and Trevor Sorbie, Vivienne developed an expertise for precision cutting and an eye for original hair design, from the classic and the commercial to the avant-garde.

Based in New York, she grew up in London and subsequently spread her wings to New York. She has been honored with numerous awards, including the much coveted North American Hairstyling Awards (five times plus 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award), as well as the prestigious IBS Editors’ Choice Awards (three times).
