It’s a busy time of year with all of the upcoming holiday parties and get-togethers with friends and family. The last thing you want to worry about is your hair! Sassoon makes it easy with a personalized look just for you. And now you can get inspired by their new A/W UTOPIA Collection. The collection draws on the 60 year brand heritage and demonstrates Sassoon’s ultimate hair designs. All of the looks from UTOPIA can be worn curly or straight, slicked back or wavy and your Sassoon Stylist will show you how to style it yourself. That’s the goal at Sassoon, to create a look that is easy to recreate every day! THE INSTANT UPDATE Super chic, convenient and effortless, this season’s update on the classic Sassoon bob is the messy bob, or “mob” pictured above. To bring this cut to life, “shades of pale oyster blonde, pearl beige and lavender have been used to give vibrancy and guarantee ultimate reflection,” says Richie Rivera, North American Color Director. Look how amazing this style works with curly or curled hair! CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC The little black dress of the hairdressing world, “the bob is a versatile look that remains as current today as it was when it was reinvented by Vidal in the swinging 60’s,” says Traci Sakotsits, Sassoon North American Creative Director. Blonde hair is timeless and adds radiance to the face. This sleek look can be worn swept to the side or wavy for a variation. HIGH DEFINITION SHINE Since I wear my hair long I adore this style from the collection, and it is similar to the way Jeremy Jernigan, Senior Stylist usually cuts my hair. It can also be worn curly but I love the sleek look. This style (above) was created with shades of deep mocha, chocolate and light caramel placed to softly frame the face and add definition to the cut. For my color, Chicago Salon & Color Director Nicole Tabloff used warm honey highlights and warm brown shades to cover my grey. To achieve a high shine look Jeremy used Kérastase L’Incroyable Blow-Dry to set it. He told me he likes this product because it reactivates whenever you style your hair.
