The Sassoon Creative team are long-time supporters of the industry charity, Hair & Beauty Benevolent (HABB), and the team recently hosted their annual educational seminar to help raise funds and awareness within the hairdressing community.
An intimate affair, guests were welcomed into the Wella London academy to an up close and personal evening with Sassoon UK Creative Director, Bruce Masefield and Colour Director, Caroline Spencer as they compèred the Sassoon Creative Team.
With three intricate sections focusing on technical colouring and precision cuttings, the presenters shared their inspirations from Sassoon Academy and Sassoon Salon collections past and present. The final section demonstrated presentation models from the Sassoon Academy’s recent collection ‘The Group’ – the SS15 collection that takes its inspiration from American classics and how Ivy League socialites meet misfits of Beat.
On the night, Sassoon Creative Team presenters included technicians Abigail Coates from Sassoon South Molton Street salon and Isla Dommet from Sassoon Covent Garden salon, Sandor Veress-Gyori from Sassoon Covent Garden, and hairdressers Oon Ng from Sassoon Academy, Michael Pliz from Sassoon City Men, Kim Lomax from Sassoon South Molton Street salon, Lucy Ward from Sassoon Kings Road salon and Marco Amoroso from Sassoon Covent Garden salon. Each member shared with the audience their inspirations and career directions before presenting their finished models to an enthralled audience. Bruce explained,
We always enjoy these evenings; being able to share our expertise as a group whilst also giving back to a great cause like HABB is really important. We’d love for more salons to do the same – host an evening for HABB and share your skills and expertise with others.
