Over the years I’ve had varying hairstyles that’ve ranged from covering half my face to sky-high spikes, wet slicked back mafioso looks & a catastrophic hair colour moment that left me so scarred that it hasn’t seen me change my hair colour up until recently. Throughout the years of blogging, unintentionally, my hair has become somewhat of my signature, my exaggerated pompadour has seen its varying heights but for the most part has stayed more or less the same – considering the revolving door of hairdressers that I either dated or ones that have flip-flopped from salon to salon that I got tired of following – I haven’t had someone consistent for years. A good hairstylist; quite frankly is something of a relationship, when you got it good, keep ’em!
Cue Sassoon Salon: Having been in the fashion and beauty industry over 10 years now, I was very familiar with the heritage of the Sassoon name. From its revolutionary founder to its specialized cut & colour techniques it’s no wonder Sassoon Salon is renowned for understated luxury and effortless sophistication with salons in iconic cities around the world.
A Sassoon haircut and colour is utterly distinctive in the way it is precisely tailored for the individual. Colours are applied and perfectly blended to flatter the individual and bring the cut to life. Our highly skilled creative cutters and color specialists will advise you on a personalized look to suit your lifestyle and complement your individuality.
With an unparalleled system of continuous training, the Sassoon brand continues to evoke the best in hair. The release of two seasonal hair collections each year ensures that our team is at the forefront in hair trends to provide a quality of work that is synonymous with excellence.
The result is effortlessly achievable when you leave the salon, with our luxurious range of professional hair care products available at Sassoon Salon.
With this continued training, it’s indicative of Sassoon’s success and this season’s A/W UTOPIA Collection is reflective of both the trends seen respectively throughout fashion and modern day.
Inspired by the relationship we have with the digital age, fashion and the many creative visions of the future, the UTOPIA collection captures the optimism of the unknown by drawing on the 60-year brand heritage to create the ultimate hair designs in high definition. “We are living in an age where boundaries are pushed, UTOPIA conjures up a space-age arcadia of ethereal beauty. Strong cut and colour techniques are used to reveal an effortlessly sophisticated look with ultimate high shine,” says Lorraine McAndrew, Canadian Creative Director.
The next few months you’ll see an on-going partnership with Sassoon Salon Toronto and I’m sure y’all have been creeping my social channels for some subtle and introductory changes to my look…I went into some colour, electric blue to be precise. Something I was so hesitant to try out was put at ease thanks to the reassuring team at Sassoon Salon.
Senior stylist, Paolo Covello got his hands onto my wildly Latino/Asian hair that has an awkward cowlick on my left hand side that I’ve never seen anyone completely manage. Going for a more angular, precision cut – I’m literally SHOOK by how it’s growing out. Shook. I don’t have to wet, blow dry and wear a toque for 10 minutes every morning to style my hair. I went in to see colour specialist, Tara Barry with high energy basically shouting “I want something crazy-in-your-face, but I’m not sure!” She calmed me down, a feat in itself, and suggested that introducing a striking colour to emphasize or compliment how I wear my hair would be a better option. It was. The electric colour was added throughout the crown of my haircut and I LOVE IT. So much so that I’ve gone in again to reenergize the blue and have dropped hints that after my trip from Mexico in April I’ll be going all out…so stay tuned to that!
