Tina Mackinder : Biography (click on name to see a photo)

Tina’s entrepreneurial talents are well documented with her first salon in Odense, the ‘Art of Hair’ which she opened in 1989. Her new venture with partner Stephen Mackinder is set to take Danish hairdressing by storm at their beautifully fitted out premises located in the desirable shopping district in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Tina has talent and aptitude for creating head turning looks that perfectly reflect the client’s personality and lifestyle, a talent that was recognised with awards and accolades soon after she begun her hairdressing career. Her thirst for a challenge and natural business acumen were called upon when she opened her own salon. ‘Art of Hair’ pioneered one hour appointment times and Tina dedicated considerable time and money to raising the skill standards of her staff. Twice a year she spent time at the Vidal Sassoon Creative School and Advance Academy in order to keep her staff at the peak of their abilities. The salon became a huge success and Tina fell in love with the Sassoon philosophy and the man that ran their Advanced Academy – Stephen.

In 1998 Tina moved to London after being invited to become an instructor for Vidal Sassoon. Her insightful teaching, strong technical skill and gentle nature made her an instant hit with the students of Sassoon’s famous Diploma and Creative courses. In 1999 Tina sold her salon business in Denmark and left behind many sad clients and a deep respect in Danish hairdressing industry.

Mackinder’s Salon and School marks a return to the country that Tina loves “I am so looking forward to bringing all of my experience home to Denmark. Working with Stephen, we intent to offer hairdressers the very best training Scandinavia and our client’s, contemporary cut and colours that help them maximise the positional of their look,” says Tina.
