“The greatest gift we can give ourselves as hairdressers are Roots and Wings… Roots being a solid foundation and Wings representing our spirit of creativity and artistry...” Vivienne Mackinder The famous Roots and Wings educational experience is back by popular demand…

Close-Up and Personal…Interact with Vivienne Mackinder in a New York Photo Studio.


Roots and Wings explores the magic of “hairstyling mastery,” from a mind-body- spirit perspective. It is a profound life-changing experience. Hair becomes the medium for greater self-awareness.

As commercial artists we must always be open to reinvent ourselves, staying current to each new season’s fashion demands.

If you took just 2% of your earnings to invest back into yourself, just imagine the difference it would make in your career and life. You give so much to others, don’t forget to give to yourself - remember you are worth it!

My own personal experience has taught me that on-going education is the key to being successful and staying inspired. As with every creative endeavor, a balance must exist between teaching the fundamentals and encouraging freedom of expression. You must learn the rules before you break the rules.
