Vidal Sassoon Academy, London, England
This is a reflection on our Soho annual educational trip that took place in May of 2018, at the prestigious Sassoon Academy in London, England. Sassoon training is globally recognized as the ultimate in hairdressing education. And for the past 60 years the reputation of Sassoon Academy has been built on developing and providing world-class education. The anticipation myself and the girls felt for this trip was quite strong, and it had finally come to fruition.
Carole took the “Salon Creative Cut Course”, where she learned how Sassoon’s innovative cutting techniques can be tailored to suit each person uniquely, whilst incorporating disconnections. The fundamental tool when cutting and designing hair, and to modernize the style.
Our Cutting Models
Jaylene, Ainsley, and Diana were enrolled in the “ABC Men Course” where they learned about men’s grooming, technique, shape, scissor over comb, and bone structure. The knowledge they have learned will help them to implement the above, while being mindful of suitability for their everyday men’s haircuts.
Melodie, Amanda, and Gabby were enrolled in the “ABC Cut Course”, where they touched on women’s cutting, technique, shape, and suitability. This provided them with the very best foundation for furthering their knowledge and skills, expanding their repertoire, and giving them the confidence to suggest the proper hair cut for each client.
Carole, Jaylene, Ainsley, Diana, Melodie, Amanda, and Gabby had so much fun exploring the city, eating phenomenal food, hitting up some great shopping, and also exploring our little neighborhood where we stayed. To no one’s surprise though, none of the above could compare to the education, inspiration, and passion for our craft, that we brought back with us from London.
