Little bit of London in the Granite City | The Linton and Mac Experience



As I type this I'm still pretty buzzed, maybe it's the prosecco talking, perhaps it's all of the hair product I've been sniffing in this evening or maybe it's simply the effect of the brand new Granite City salon everybody has been talking about, Linton and Mac. As you'll know if you've been keeping up to date with Granite City Girl these last couple of weeks, recently I went along to the grand opening of new salon and style bar Linton and Mac so I thought I would just take a moment to share how the event went, what sort of services Linton and Mac offer and just really to beam about the business in general!

Stepping in to Linton and Mac you wouldn't be blamed if you thought you'd just stepped directly on to a Pinterest board, from the chic interiors and amazing product ranges to the nick nacks and attention to detail, the Linton and Mac experience is the stuff of blogger dreams. Linton and Mac themselves are, simply put, two driven young women with an amazing passion for their craft and a desire to bring some style, class and something that little bit different to the Aberdeen beauty and hairdressing industry and I'll tell you for the media and blogger launch they brought it hard! Inspired by salons across the world, namely London, Linton and Mac aimed to emulate that type of experience and give a luxe, lavish feel to their salon which comes across beautifully and their range of services are just as impressive as their outward appearance.

Opening officially on the 1st of September Linton and Mac offer a wide range of services, whether you're just looking for a cut and blow dry, some balayage or if you want to know how to contour your face like Kim K they're your new go to gals! Their style bar service itself is something I have never seen anywhere else, for the price of £25 you're given half an hour with one of their professional stylists who will give your hair some OOMPH from their very own styling guide. On the night I was lucky enough to sample this service and I did not leave disappointed (as I sometimes do when my hair is 'styled') and you can see the glamorous after picture below!

The stylist spoke me through the entire process and let me know what products she was using, when and why, which for a hair styling novice like me is great because even though its only a half hour appointment you come away knowing so much more about your hair. The style I picked was a very voluminous, gelled back style but as my ears tend to be a bit elfie (not the cute Lord of the Rings kind) the stylist catered the style totally to my face. Selfies a plenty were taken I tell you and I was so gutted I didn't have a night out or even a meal planned, nope just some quality time with the telly!


I'm excited to see how far Linton and Mac are yet to go, if their launch evening is any indication I can safely say I see this dynamic duo going global and I'll personally be back to try out their beauty bar as well as for a second styling experience because ladies, I just can't get enough. Linton and Mac are now open for business in the Granite City be sure to go and check them out at 18 Netherkirkgate in Aberdeen or give them a buzz on 01224 641664 to book in for a little treat!

I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peak into life in the Granite City and just what I have been up to in general, I love being able to share events like this particularly when it comes to new businesses and ventures in Aberdeen as they can be few and far between. If you were at the Linton and Mac opening I'd love to hear from you and what your thoughts are on the business be sure to leave a comment below, come find me on Twitter, or if you'd like to see more of my face (and hair) be sure to follow Granite City Girl on Bloglovin.

Until next time folks, enjoying the Linton and Mac experience.

  1. This sound amazing! I hope they do really well and expand to London. There's no stores that offer both services hand in hand like this that I know of

    1. They were so chic and I really do hope they do well up here and can expand. It was such a one stop salon and had literally everything, so modern!

    1. Thats one of the things I was most jealous of, their brush collection, in fact I was sorely tempted to slip them in my handbag!
