FC: VIVIENNE MACKINDER by: rachel helling
1: Vivienne grew up in London, and attended the Vidal Sassoon salon where she acquired her initial training with Vidal himself, and Trevor Sorbie. “Vidal Sassoon taught me the importance of discipline, and without discipline I don’t think you can do anything. But the flip side of it is to be able to learn the rules and then break the rules and step out of the creative box and be daring."
2: "I DO HAIR"
3: My Philosophy is To create fresh and fashionable styles without compromising beauty; to seek the beauty of each client, working in a holistic approach of mind, body and spirit. In my educational work my goal is to inspire people to want to be their best. I show stylists how to follow the rules and then break the rules, without compromising beauty. There is a fine line between creativity and bad taste.
