The Year in Progress

For the last year, the team here at MAC Hair Studio has been embarking on a journey to hone their skills. The beauty industry is ever changing, and trends come and go. With the guiding’s of international hair artist Vivienne MacKinder, the team has worked hard and accomplished so much. Last October, Vivienne was our guest in shop to work with our team and other stylists in the Jacksonville area.

This April, our team went to her. They flew to the Hamptons for a two-day intensive course in hair cutting and dresswork.

Education is the Key to Success

Through working with Vivienne, the team has learned how taking three vital key factors into consideration can change the way they cut their clients’ hair. These factors are versatility, fashionability, and the lifestyle of their individual clients.

In a recent blog post you can read here, I explained how versatility can allow your hair to match your mood and change with your daily style. Here at MAC our stylists are committed to creating a hairstyle that will complement the rest of your look and your personality.

Some other factors that can come into play when you are evaluating your current style or looking to change it up are your face shape and body type. These can impact the types of styles that will complement your features the most. By taking all these factors into account, your stylist can best create a look for you that will compliment YOU!

A Message from Margaret

“After two intense days of study under the fabulous Vivienne McKinder, the salon staff have come away with a renewed enthusiasm for our beautiful business. Our desire to bring new value to our business, and equally our clients, created a unity within our stylists. Certainly, I am blessed with a great staff and unity has never been much of a problem, but this experience was a thread that bound us together a little tighter.”

-Margaret Misenar

 

 

A New Chapter…

Starting A New Chapter:

We feel blessed that we’ve had three years with Sherrie Ralph as our esthetician and spa specialist.

Although we’re sad to see her go, we gathered with a few of her closest clients for a send-off luncheon to wish her a happy retirement.

Our very own Amber Stephens will continue our spa services. Sherrie and Amber have been working together during this transition.

In order for our clients to become familiar with Amber, we’re offering 20% off all spa services through Thanksgiving.

New York Fashion Week

In the City That Never Sleeps…neither did we!

This year’s NYFW was a family affair with MAC Hair Studio owner, Margaret, her daughter Lyndsey and son Colin by her side.

Colin and Margaret had the opportunity to work backstage as part of the Vivienne Mackinder team creating the looks for the Malan Bretan show. This is Margaret’s second year working NYFW at Vivienne Mackinder’s side. Mackinder is one of the most highly respected international leaders and innovators in the hairdressing profession today.

Lyndsey spent NYFW behind the lens, capturing the moments backstage and on the runway.

Editorial Photo Shoot

What kind of bride are you?

Together, Lyndsey and Vivienne Mackinder held an editorial photoshoot showcasing eight different bridal looks at the Vanderbilt mansion in the Hamptons.

They paired different hairstyles with bridal gowns to create the perfect look from Boho Bride to Fairy-Tale, and even Classic Beauty.

We hope to release info about these images being published soon!

Lyndsey is available for style shoots or holiday family photos, but availability is limited! See more of her work at lyndseyannephotography.com

No visit to New York is complete without a celebrity spotting.

Lyndsey snagged a picture with Lisa Vanderpump from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The rest of the Real Housewives crew was there too, right next to the catwalk.

Last Minute Personable Gift Ideas for Her

By | Salon News | No Comments

Write her a card expressing how much she means to you. At the end, tell her that her Christmas present is a full day spent just the two of you. Prepare breakfast for her in the morning. Take her to the movies, go putt-putting, take a walk, ride bikes, go to an arcade or bowling. At night, take her to her favorite restaurant (don’t forget to make reservations!) Make sure you buy her favorite flowers. She will be thrilled to spend a whole day with you. Your gift will be her expression when she reads what you have planned!

Wear Your Greens.

Change is an inevitable part of life. With change comes aging skin and different types of acne. When it comes to age and your skin, you may experience a plethora of ongoing changes: new expression lines, a loss in skin elasticity and those breakouts that you assumed you left behind in your teen years. As we age, estrogen levels drop and testosterone levels begin to rise. This hormonal imbalance results in an increase in oil gland production in the skin which can clog pores and cause breakouts.
