About Angela Mackay

Angela Mackay is a Los Angeles-based professional hairstylist who grew up in Santa Monica, California. She was fascinated with pop culture from an early age, and by far her favorite part about it were the glamorous hairstyles Hollywood starlets so effortlessly rocked in the movies she so religiously watched.

Her personal favorites growing up include modern classics such as Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and Michelle Pfeiffer in Married to the Mob. When she wasn’t hanging around Santa Monica Pier with her high school friends, teenage Angela would try to emulate the luscious locks and daring cuts she always saw at the cinema.

This is how she knew hair was her passion. She got her Certificate and Associate’s Degree in Hairdressing from Santa Monica College, then completed a wide array of courses with the esteemed Sassoon Academy.

She finally obtained the coveted Sassoon Academy Certificate before taking some time off from her salon work, moving to L.A., and focusing on opening her own business. These days she’s completely focused on writing for MyNewHairstyles, where she shares her insights on cuts, colors, and trends for women of all ages.
