Kirsty is the proud owner of MACIZ Lounge, who took it through a significant transformation from its previous identity as Kirby's Hair Salon. This strategic move has allowed Kirsty and her dedicated team to expand their client base and offer an enhanced range of services.
Kirsty's journey in the beauty and hair industry began with a strong foundation. She started by studying Level 1&2 Hairdressing at a family-run salon in her hometown of Winchburgh. This early education ignited her passion for the craft and laid the groundwork for her future success.
Driven by a desire to excel in her field, Kirsty pursued further education at West Lothian College, where she undertook an HNC/HND beauty therapy program. This decision broadened her skill set and opened up new opportunities in the beauty sector.
Kirsty's dedication to her craft was truly evident during her three years of hands-on experience, where she worked diligently at an establishment in Queensferry. This practical experience honed her skills and allowed her to fine-tune her expertise in both hairdressing and beauty therapy.
The name "MACIZ" holds a special significance to Kirsty. It's not just a business; it's a labor of love and a tribute to her daughter, MACY. Kirsty's inspiration behind the business branding stems from her deep affection for her child, making MACIZ Lounge a place that's not only professionally exceptional but also deeply personal.
With her extensive experience, MACIZ Lounge has become a go-to destination for individuals seeking top-notch hair and beauty services in the area. Kirsty's commitment to excellence, coupled with her dedication to her family, is at the heart of the business's success.
