 Romantica, Redhead Braids - 2012

Romantic braided style on glorious redhead rising softly up to there at the front, from Vivienne Mackinder’s 2012 Romantica Collection. The hair was styled into a 3-strand rope, worked around the head, and cascaded into the center back, where it was then gathered into a loose ponytail.

THE P-P-PUFF – Meggan

For this version of  The P-P-Puff, by Vidal Sassoon’s Art Director Avram, the silhouette was
injected with a healthy dose of fresh…air, and the “hair is cut aerially, layered superficially
with all ends wisped for a soft new look.  It was cut in C-shape around the cheekbone, giving extra volume when waved away from the the face, extra openness when worn down.”

The message was all-over volume, whether the hair was left alone to dry naturally, blown dry,
with or without a brush, or puff-dried upside down with fingers. At Sassoon, we didn’t tease,
so we did a lot of hair upside down!

Anecdotes: Meggan was one of my assistants at my Sassoon office, she was not a
model but the photographer, Lorraine Sylvestre, made her look like one in this photo.
She had beautiful red hair and who could resist.
