Scotland's third-largest city, Aberdeen, is culturally, historically and economically significant both within Scotland itself and in the wider UK. The University of Aberdeen, which was founded in 1495, is one of the oldest in the English-speaking world. Historically, the city's economy was based on fishing, shipbuilding, paper making and textile mills. In recent decades, these industries have been edged out by more modern industries, including electronic design and development, agricultural research and the oil industry. These rapid modern changes match the city's burgeoning beauty scene, so if you think it's time to give your style a new lease of life, there are plenty of hairdressers in Aberdeen to choose from.
