SASSOON REDEFINED
Vivienne Mackinder takes on Bauhaus in latest collection

One of Vidal Sassoon’s early collections was inspired by Bauhaus, an artistic movement originating in Germany in the early 20th century that taught architectural design and structure. These looks were characterized by strong geometric shapes – very structured and controlled. In Vivienne Mackinder’s latest collection, Bauhaus Rocks, she has taken her own approach to her mentor’s concept using the razor to allow for more movement and flow. “Recent trends in razor cutting have been defined by very jagged edges. I wanted to move away from that and show how the classic cuts can be achieved through the precision of razor cutting.”

The Bauhaus Rocks Collection is defined by an edgy mixture of angles designed to complement the symmetry of the face and bone structure. Strong blocks of color then highlight the architecture in each hair design.

Mackinder advises aspiring artists, “All great masters have one thing in common. Learn the rules before you break them.” The 30-year industry veteran, and former Artistic Director of Vidal Sassoon, has certainly earned her right to break the rules as a five time NAHA recipient, most recently earning Master Stylist of the Year, and honored this year (2008) by the North American Hairstyling Awards as a leading lady in hair. Her latest venture is a foray into a top tier salon training program called The Elite Program and an online education system, www.HairDesignerTV.com.
