Sassoon Asks: Are You Ready For a New Do And A New You?

Occasionally, holidays, parties or the impending new year makes us ready for a new look. The simplest way to accomplish trying something new is with your hair (I just went for new bangs myself). Sassoon makes it a no-brainer and more importantly an easy decision with a personalized look just for you. It’s not hard to be inspired by Sassoon’s new A/W UTOPIA Collection. The collection draws on the 60-year brand heritage and demonstrates Sassoon’s ultimate high definition hair designs. All 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!

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. “We are living in an age where boundaries are pushed, UTOPIA conjures up a spaceage arcadia of ethereal beauty. Strong cut and color techniques are used to reveal an effortlessly sophisticated look with ultimate high shine,” says Traci Sakosits, North American Creative Director.

The old myth that you need to have a certain type of hair to sport a ‘Sassoon precision bob’ are tossed out the window. Trust me, I have thick, wavy hair which is not meant for a precision bob, yet I get a great cut and color every time I go…and I have been going to Sassoon in both Chicago and NYC for over 11 years.





Super chic, convenient and effortless, this season’s update on the classic Sassoon bob is the messy bob (or mob). 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.



A feminine, modern length, shades of deep mocha, chocolate and light caramel have been placed to softly frame the face and add definition to the cut. To achieve a luxe high shine look, “use Kérastase’s Elixir Ultime combined with L’Incroyable Blow-Dry to set after blowdrying,” says Traci.




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. Blonde hair is timeless and adds radiance to the face. “This season, shades of oyster blonde are combined together with a light cashmere for subtle, head-turning shine,” says Richie.
