Linton and Mac is a hair salon like no other in Aberdeen, it has quite a cool and edgy vibe to it with copper mirrors, iconic prints, quirky nick-nacks such as matryoshka dolls and a flamingo head, and the bathroom flooring is made with shiny 1p and 2p pieces. Established by Jennifer Linton and Joanna MacDonald, they opened their premises on Netherkirkgate only a year ago and have already won various awards including Best Business, One to Watch and Most Promising New Business to name just a few.
I went along to help them celebrate their first successful year in business as well as see their new looks for their Style Bar collection. The Style Bar is a service that I’ve not seen offered elsewhere but for £25 they will style your locks in 30 minutes ready for you to look amazing whether you are off to a wedding or a night out, as well as a offer you a glass of Prosecco or a Gin & Tonic to help get you in the party mood.
Linton and Mac sure know how to party, as well as having amazing food such as sausage & mash canapés, mini baked potatoes with sour cream, mini pizzas they had a Build your own Bubbles Bar where you could add lemon, cucumber or strawberries as well as cordials such as Morello Cherry (my favourite) and lime to your Prosecco or Gin. The cute little Trolls pictured partying at the salon weren’t just for decoration, some of them had white feet which meant that you won a prize. Sadly the white-footed Trolls were quite elusive as I never came across one (sad times).
For such a high end salon I was expecting a price list to match but I was quite surprised on how much their services were as they are very reasonable and not any more than what I’m paying at my current hairdresser so I will definitely be scheduling a hair appointment with them in the next few weeks.
