The Treasures in our Lives

HI there my Friends at HairDesignerTv and Fellow Colorists and stylists,

At this special time of year we are all reminded about the importance of love, compassion and gratitude towards mankind. Indeed these are acts of service a good hairdressers and colorist performs every day behind their chair.

I believe you will enjoy this powerful video message. It made me question my value behind the chair? The value of my relationships and so much more.  What is your value?  Who determined your value? Can you earn an increase for 2018?

Watch this powerful 3 minute video and then ask yourself these important questions: Could I  be undercharging for my professional services? Do I place myself in environments where I flourish?  If you do not have answers to these questions, then pour yourself a nice big cocktail and have Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, and lets dive deeper in the New Year. xxx


Wave and sleek design
From the new Pivot Point collection – Hair By Vivienne Mackinder
This style was such a challenge in technical skills to wave the hair and then transition into sleek hair.  Its beauty and originality make it’s expensive and a treasure.  I hope you enjoy.  Should you wish to add more value to your team check out my NEW TRAIN THE TRAINER PROGRAM FOR 2018.  I  hope you will join me. All the best Vivienne.
