There is beauty in the functionality of a refined haircut and the Function Collection has stripped back hair design to its absolute essentials to be fit for purpose. The modernist house codes of Sassoon have been used to create an innovative geometric frame or ‘geometry within geometry.’ A strong interior shape sits within the centre of the cut providing a refined framework for the look. A second exterior geometric shape is then cut around the interior. The exterior shape can be manipulated and finished with asymmetry and texture to visually deconstruct the strong shape within.
The classic Sassoon techniques of foil-work including woven highlights and two-tone tints work with the principles of shape and balance to create density within the cut and add strength to the outline. Modernity comes through unique combinations of iconic Sassoon colouring techniques combined with innovative colour formulations tailored to the individual. Edward Darley UK Colour Director says, ‘we’re moving against the idea of one technique fitting all – it’s all about personalisation.’
