Mid Season 2023
The new mid season Academy collection.
A Sassoon collection is always an approach that’s thoughtful, intent on stripping away the superfluous to reveal the uniqueness of the individual.
“The collection Mood is a perfect distillation.” Says Mark Hayes Sassoon International Creative Director. “We are exploring the exquisite tension between technique, the method to control hair and attitude, the way the hair looks when it is dressed the Sassoon way.”
Stripping back hair to the fundamentals of design, mid length layers are cut into a faux mohawk. A bob features reverse panels and is cut without a fringe following the natural contours of the cheekbones. Bi level shapes are drawn around the face in laser sharp lines. Shoulder skimming layers trace the contours of the face in a ribbon like finish or a cloud of curls
Colour placement is key, an iconic bob is subverted with a checkerboard pattern in contrasting tones. Zig zag lines slice through a mid-length layered cut. A box bob is reimagined in tones of blonde and copper, referencing Bowie during the Berlin years. Rhythmically placed geometric bands create a stunning 3D effect. An asymmetrical layered look in deep mahogany is then edged in blood red.
