All New Audio Stories: Vivienne Mackinder

The digital and social media team at American Salon is always on the lookout for new and better ways to share more of the many amazing stories that collectively help to define the professional beauty industry. Today we launch the test of a new storytelling program – something we call Conversations (a part of our ongoing Audio Stories series). Featuring a small sampling of the conversations we are lucky enough to be having daily with amazingly talented and inspiring individuals, we recorded our first of many chats to come at this year's Intercoiffure North America Fall Atelier.  

We kick things off with the always inspiring Vivienne Mackinder in conversation with our own Gordon Miller, American Salon's VP of Digital. In the coming weeks, watch for conversations with Guy Tang and Tracey Cunningham, Christopher Dove and John Simpson, CND Founder Jan Arnold –as well as part 2 of our chat with Vivienne.  

About: Gordon is VP of Digital at American Salon where he works with the entire editorial team as well as with the considerable resources of parent company Questex to bring you stories, resources and more, 24/7. Gordon can be found online at or as @gordnm on Instagram. In real-time, you can find Gordon at major beauty events where he often teaches classes on business and career development as well as best practices in digital and social media.  Email Gordon at [email protected].
