The Sassoon Creative Team’s fall/winter 2012 collection draws inspiration from Swiss photographer Karl Heinz Weinberger, whose gritty images depicted the stylishly disaffected Zurich teenager. The theme of teenage rebellion is expressed in hair shapes that are elongated from back to front then broken up into irregular texture. Strips are cut through the top by sliding the fingers along the hair shaft while continually moving the scissor blade.

The narrow shapes at the temples and long backs streamline the shape—it’s a bold take on an iconic ’50s look. Using Wella Koleston Perfect, the hair color is monochromatic and sectioned into flame shapes echoing ’50s customized cars. Tones are graded from strong to soft—designed to give the illusion of slicked-back ’50s pomade.
