Bringing the girl power is Aberdeen success story Linton & Mac who, within just a year, ranked in the top 5% of the city’s 152 salons, trebled their projected takings and amassed a client base of more than 6,700 clients…impressive! Co-founders Jennifer Linton and Joanna MacDonald talk mastering their market, perfecting the client experience and staying current. Standing out for creativity as well as business brilliance, the duo will be also be joined by the salon’s colour expert Sarah Black, who recently finalised in both the Most Wanted & The It List Awards 2018, to share their creative processes from conceptualising trendsetting collections to curating an on-brand instagram feed. Bring it on!
Joining proceedings is revered session stylist and one half of Percy & Reed, Paul Percival. With over 20 years experience, Paul has amassed a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most talented and charming hair stylists in the industry. Having worked with countless glossy magazines, at fashion week and with many of the world’s leading names, Paul found himself firmly embraced by the music industry, earning an enviable roster of loyal clients over the years ranging from The Spice Girls and Ellie Goulding to Will Young, Cheryl and Rita Ora. As well as juggling session projects, two successful London salons and a global haircare range, Paul’s passion also lies in supporting hairdressing’s young talents, raising awareness of mental health in young people and the importance of apprenticeships in keeping the industry moving forward.
Completing the line-up is independent stylist Jody Taylor – fresh from his Most Wanted Male Grooming Specialist win. Starting off his career as an apprentice at the flagship Toni & Guy salon in Mayfair, Jody went on to study under Anthony Mascolo and quickly became a key member of the Toni & Guy artistic team. Honing his craft in the grooming arena, his unique approach, technical know-how, love of traditional barbering and creative approach to editorial work, has seen him recognised as a dynamic talent. A regular at London Fashion Week Men’s, credits in titles from GQ to Dazed, collaborations with brands including Louis Vuitton and Topman, as well as celebrity stylings for the likes of David Beckham, Jack White and Jenson Button, make Jody one sought after name.
