Vidal Sassoon HighHair Collage - 1980

Photos: Lorraine Sylvestre … Collage helenoppenheim.com

1980. A memory.  Some of the photos from Vidal Sassoon’s famous inspirational influential HighHair Collection.  At the time, fashion hair was not high.  Having hair rising up on top was new. The concept for this collection was mine and some big talents at the Vidal Sassoon New York Salon in the General Motors Building in NYC helped make it happen.
