Internationally Renowned Hair Stylist Gives Workshop in Broad Ripple
posted: Mar. 05, 2010

Vivienne Mackinder, the London-born, internationally famed hair stylist, designer, author, and lecturer, recently spent a weekend with the staff of A Do Hair Design in Broad Ripple.
Mackinder, whose visit was funded, in part, by co-owners Jennifer and Doug Miller, and by the employees themselves through their funds earned from sales of products, was "not only brilliant, vibrant, and charming, she was so inspiring and served as an incredible role model for all of us," said Jennifer Miller.

A Do Hair Design, founded in 2002 by the Millers, is located at 6207 N. College Avenue. In addition to several types of hair services, including cutting, styling, coloring, chemical treatments, hair extensions, the salon also offers eyelash extensions, makeup and waxing. The motto is "Love your hair. We do."
Mackinder, the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National American Hair Designers in 2009, is often described as an international leader and innovator in the industry. A former artistic director for Vidal Sassoon and Trevor Sorbie, Mackinder, a four-time winner of the North American Hairdressing Award and the Editors Choice Award three times, is now based in New York.
Miller said, "It was such an honor having her in our salon. It was more intense than any of us imagined it would be." She added, "We are fortunate that our salon is not another sad statistic right now in this economic climate. Instead, we are focusing on growing and becoming more talented with each year we do business."
As a session stylist, Mackinder has collaborated and designed hair collections for runway fashion collections in New York, Paris, and London. It is this global experience and reputation that excited the owners and staff of A Do. "Over the course of two days with this amazing woman and voice in our beloved industry," Miller said, "not only did we learn the value of teamwork, we also learned how to grow our business, one of our greatest passions, with our words, our hands, our tools, and our courage.
