On 10th October 2015 Hani, Julie, Ben, Ollie and Ruth were invited to an exclusive weekend event hosted by Sassoon. Abstract Hairdressing are a leading Sassoon Partner Salon and this title gains us exclusive access to training and events but once in a while we are invited to something extremely special. Sassoon Professional wined and dined our team all weekend. We stayed at the Hilton, Tower Bridge. After checking in we were greeted by a welcome glass of champagne before getting suited and booted to go for dinner in a private room at Gauchos, Tower bridge (with fabulous views of Tower Bridge itself and the lights of London).
After a very late night, it was time to get up the following morning to get ready for a jam packed day full of fun, learning and inspiration. We were transferred to Salon International at the Excel Arena (the industry’s biggest trade show) where the team had VIP seats to Sassoon’s “Androgyne” collection- one of the industry’s most eagerly anticipated catwalk shows. With front row seats, alongside the biggest names in the industry, the team got the best view of the Sassoon International Team showcasing their talent on stage: Mark Hayes, Danial McCourt, Peter Dawson, Edward Darley, Bruce Masefield, Nicola Matthews, and Silvia Salerno to name a few.
The excitement of the Sassoon Collection launch was followed by Afternoon tea on a double decker (London Bus) which then took us to the exclusive “Tribute” show at the Novello Theatre where the biggest names in the industry gathered to spectate as Industry leaders took to the stage to show us why they are the leaders in Avante garde hair.
