In her work as Artistic Director for industry grand masters 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 City, she grew up in London and subsequently opted to spread her wings to the United States.

She has been honored with numerous awards, including the much coveted North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) (five times), the most recent being "Masters," and the prestigious IBS Editors Choice Awards (three times).

Vivienne is an in-demand featured guest artist-educator for premier international events worldwide and her work is consistently published in the international press. She founded the "Roots and Wings" educational program in New York City to much acclaim.

Vivienne's career as a master stylist is divided between her salon clientele, editorial and advertorial shoots, advertising campaigns and countless special events as featured artist, not to mention her work for entertainment entities, MTV and the VH-1 Fashion Awards.

As a session stylist, she has collaborated and designed hair collections for runway fashion collections in New York, Paris and London.

As a renowned international hairstylist, sought after artist-educator and five time NAHA award winner, Vivienne Mackinder is both highly deserving of this honor and is truly exemplary of the spirit in which it is given.

Mackinder's career as a master stylist is divided between her salon clientele, editorial and advertorial shoots, advertising campaigns, countless special events as a featured artist and her work for multiple entertainment media entities.
