Mackinder advises: “Visit salons and see if there is anyone doing what you would like to be in five years. Look at their image, the quality of their work and how successful they are.”
“It is critical that a salon has an investment in education with accountability. Finally, don’t be too impatient to become great.”

Mackinder is Fashion Director for Intercoiffure (“It’s been an amazing journey”), she consults on education for Simplicity Hair Extensions and has become a certified John C. Maxwell leadership coach.
“As an artist you have to be able to say, what is my next reinvention? I want to help salon owners and managers. It’s about building teams. I collaborate and share visions and goals. That is part of being a leader. You can create anything if you can collaborate.”
“Every day, I get to celebrate and create beauty—the joy in this has never worn off.”
