THE P-P-PUFF – Danielle

The big new silhouette from Vidal Sassoon Salons USA in 1981 was injected with a healthy dose
of fresh…air.  Very new then, a very different and high fashion direction for Vidal Sassoon.

The look was voluminous, the effect airy, fresh, very natural, casual, with carefully cut-up hair
p-p-puffing…flicking and flirting around the silhouette, framing the face, in soft, flattering ways.
It was big. And soft. And sexy.

ANECDOTE: Most of the Vidal Sassoon die-hards didn’t want to go in a new direction or
cut any hair but the precision geometrics they had done since the 60s and still do to this day.
They  gave me a hard time and didn’t really get what I was doing…
