An important nomination for the British hairstylist at the North American Hairstyling Awards 2015, better known as NAHA.
Thanks to her hair fashion collection aptly entitled “The Journey”, Vivienne Mackinder won the Master Stylist of the Year 2015 award at the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA).
Of British origins, Vivienne now resides in Riverhead, New York. Before entering Vidal Sassoon, she frequented the London College of Fashion. In 1990, she moved to the United States, where she worked for Trevor Sorbie as International Creative Director, before founding HairDesignerTV.
Vivienne said: “Wow! I so didn’t expect this. Ahead of tonight's even I told my husband of my nervousness and he gave me great comfort by saying I'd already climbed and reached the top of a mountain simply by being nominated and short-listed. And did it really matter if I did or didn’t get a glass trophy to prove the fact? So to every nominee, it's the journey which is the most important thing and really big congratulations to all of you for having the courage to climb that mountain.”
“My winning Journey collection represents an interpretation of Samurai warriors. And one thing I do know is its success is all down to teamwork. Thank you so much to my award winning team: amazing photographer Julia Pogodina, incredible make-up artist David Maderich, everyone in my HDTV art team, and to my husband for believing in me when I don't always believe in myself.”
