We are all deeply saddened by the loss of our dearest Peter Dawson. The response to Peter’s passing, both in the Sassoon world and the larger hairdressing community shows how loved and respected he was, not only as one of the worlds greatest colourists but also a thoroughly decent, likeable, down to earth human being.
Peter, who celebrated his 45th Sassoon anniversary in July, transferred from the UK to Germany at the age of 18, and he gradually rose to hold the position of European Colour Director. He was an inspiring educator, whose love of art was his main inspiration for the innovative techniques and looks that he produced and was an excellent communicator who enthusiastically passed on his knowledge to others. One of the hardest working team members and a champion of the qualities that make Sassoon special, he will be greatly missed by all his friends, colleagues and his legion of fans worldwide.
A fuller tribute to Peter together with some of his ground breaking work will be published in the days to come.
