The F.A.M.E. Team spent the day with Bruce Masefield at the Sassoon Academy, on Monday 9th November, as their penultimate date for what has been a fantastic and busy year.
The morning started with an opportunity to develop their knowledge of classic cutting techniques, including expertise on the renowned ABC education and Sassoon history. Bruce described the hair trends over the years and the influences of industry experts such as Vidal in cutting and styling.
Bruce then introduced his model for his demonstration before he discussed face shape and hair growth patterns in a full consultation. The Team were able to ask questions throughout and it was an incredible opportunity to hear more about Bruce’s personal and professional background. He spoke fondly of trends that influenced his career while he was training at Sassoon in Manchester, as well how he became the UK Creative Director.
His finished look was beautiful and a reflection of how important the suitability is of a haircut to the individual.
The afternoon was a workshop in which Bruce provided expertise throughout offering suggested techniques that would assist with their models’ looks. It was obvious the Team were incredibly grateful for all the knowledge Bruce gave them, and it reflected in the stunning finishes they created. Luke Benson said,
What an amazing day with a real insight into the Sassoon philosophy and the fundamental cutting techniques. The model demonstration Bruce did was beautiful and he really took the time to explain everything he was doing. The afternoon was an opportunity for us to work alongside him on our own models, and we were so grateful for his expertise and knowledge in creating the amazing looks. Thank you so much to Bruce for giving us his time and the Sassoon Academy for looking after us!
