Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand, so it only makes sense that a hairstyle is as cutting edge, AND versatile, as you need it to be to be to perfectly compliment your look(s). The latest Sassoon collection of hair design, titled Bi-Couture, is the spring/summer concept that gives a strong nod to couture as well as to the heritage of Vidal Sassoon’s methodology of cutting, executed today, of course, by the Sassoon International Creative Team. Customization is key, which also represents the couture mentality, taking into the account the wearer’s features such as bone structure and hair texture, as well as comfort level and lifestyle.
There’s certainly a graphic element to the technique, thanks to its layering and geometric, angular patterning, found it both cut and color, however, it still remains wearable within its avant garde nature. The contrast and “bi” part of the Bi-Couture collection comes via the variety of styling options that are presented, thanks to the foundation of a stellar, considerate cut. See above for the two distinctly different ways in which the same cut can be styled, which in its essence, is Bi-Couture.
I personally experienced a signature hair design in the mode of Bi-Couture, thanks to Creative Director Michael Forrey at Sassoon Salon‘s downtown location. After chatting with Michael about my hair’s current life and expectations, I can dutifully report that my requirements were certainly met (I wanted to still keep it relatively long, able to easily pull it back, and keep it low maintenance for styling), however I certainly got a major refresh to the style that I wanted to maintain. You can see some of the precise changes via the improved framing of my face with layering, taking up the hair a few inches to balance out the proportions, and some texture in the back for added volume, which I am always so desperately craving. As an expert and pioneer of innovative hair design for decades, I know that I’m in good hands with Sassoon, and look forward to the collection that is presented for fall/winter 2014 (see here for previous seasons’ collection).
