MALIN VINDAHL

MENTOR STYLIST

Malin was born and raised in Sweden and since she could talk she told her Mom that she wanted to be a hairstylist, so as soon she was able to, she attended the Swedish Hair Academy undergoing four years of intense training, followed with six months of Advanced Cutting at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London as well as training at the prestigious Glauca Rossi School of make-up.

After that her world opened up and Malin got to expand her career to work with some of the best in the industry. Some of these highlights include touring with Anthony Mascolo, the founder of Toni and Guy, being sponsored by Max Factor and in charge of all makeup for their International Model Search contest, ultimately finding her way back to Stockholm where she worked at Rezze&Co. Salon, at which time she became a platform artist for Schwarzkopf.

It was during this time that she met David Abrams who was in Stockholm teaching for Schwartzkopf. After moving to Los Angeles, she joined owners David and Jason when they opened Luxelab over a decade ago, becoming one of the first to join the team.

Since then she has worked on countless photo-shoots, weddings and TV shows including American Idol and has a number of celebrity clients. In 2007 she became the Artistic Director for Nordic Hair Contrast, the exclusive hair extension line carried at Luxelab. Working with extensions and wigs introduced Malin to the most incredible clients and has allowed her to impact their lives in such a positive way. Working with clients who have suffered hair loss from chemo or medications and being able to make them feel whole and beautiful again has been one of the most rewarding parts of Malin’s long career.

Outside of the salon she has a love of sports and is inspired by the discipline and competitive nature of athletes. Being naturally competitive herself, she likes to push herself to be the best at what she does. Malin has been most successful at building close and personal relationships with her clients which really sets her apart in the competitive hair industry. She is currently a Mentor Stylist and is happily married to Tomas who is always at her side supporting her in her busy career.
