As always, it has been all go go go around Linton and Mac this Easter month... our team has grown bigger, our juniors have grown artistically and our loyalty offering to you lovely clients has grown too.
Which all means our passion and drive has grown also! We really do love what we do - read on to find out more!
As of April, we now add L'Oreal Smartbond to all of our colour services at Linton & Mac.. This is an ingredient added to colour to protect the condition of your hair during the colouring process.
We take the condition of your hair extremely seriously and want to offer you the best in colour technology advances.
The Academy of Make-Up
We teamed up with our favourite academy at their Golden Square space, to style the hair of their beautiful models for their students graduation final shoot.
Sara Hill's Make-Up Academy holds a special place in our hearts, as before getting her own stunning space at Golden Square, her classes of budding new make-up artists used to take up residency in Linton & Mac every Sunday.
New Addition to the Fam
April kicked off with Nadia joining us as a Principal Level Stylist. She has been getting on great guns around the salon, with a busy busy column and fitting right in with the team!
Check out some of her work here... and get yourself booked in for a complementary consultation - she's definitely one to watch.
Sarah @ The Social London
April saw Sarah Black's return to The Social London.
The Social is owned by Ky "Cut" Wilson, who won last years L'Oreal Colour Trophy Men's Image, alongside our Sarah... so it made perfect sense that they team up and offer London based clients a truly winning experience!
Next date: Saturday 5th May
We had a wee party to launch our fantastic student discounts at the beginning of April.
As of now, every Monday, students can make the most of discounts in both hair and beauty. And receiving a stamp loyalty card, means that for every six services received, you also get a free hair cut!
This is a great opportunity for our graduate stylists to grow their clientele, whilst offering amazing savings across the board for the struggling students of Aberdeen!
Shape & Paint
The incredibly talented educator, Ben Brown came to Linton & Mac for a couple of days in April. First he held his own training day, where local stylists came into the salon to learn from one of the best in the business.
The second day, saw a collab between him and Sarah. Offering insight into both colouring and cutting techniques.
We absolutely fell in love with Mr Brown, so watch this space for his next Aberdeen visit.......
L'Oreal Colour Trophy 2018
We were blown away that not one but two teams from Linton and Mac got through to the regional finals in Glasgow. Abbie for Rising Star, and Ross & Jaye for Men's image.
As you can see from the pics, they all put in an amazing effort. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be Linton and Mac's year this year - but as always, the experience of competing in such a competition, was more than worth it.
Every time, makes us realise, how important it is to support each other and work as a team... team work, really does make the dream work...!!!
Our Future Talents, got all grown up and put on their own show!
They organised everything themselves, fro the venue to the styling to the looks they presented... and we couldn't have been more proud!!

All the boys...
We launched American Crew in the salon, with a full day of product knowledge and training with the brilliant Ian Tucker.
This is a men's grooming range, built for men.
...and what better way to celebrate, than filling the salon with these hotties and putting on a men's trends show! Our Ross headed up a style team, and under Ian's watchful eye got together a collection of looks to suit all types.
We took the opportunity to combine the American Crew celebrations, with the launch of our exclusive Couples Card... if you didn't make the party, don't worry - it's not too late to sign up.
So, that brings us to up to date... happy May Day, start of summer, Beltane blessings, full moon greetings... whatever you are into - we cannot wait for summer!!
First up, we will be popping up at Soul Bar for May Day celebrations, with our "Me Bar"... let us help you get your glam and glitter on!
We've got loads happening, so stay tuned - and if you haven't already, get signed up for our blogs... giving you The Low Down on all things Linton & Mac.
peace & love
