THE SASSOONIST

"The only place where success comes before work is the dictionary."

Let's begin by saying that I am not a hairstylist and that the images words and opinions vaulted here are reflective of the musings and ruminations upon a sub-culture that intimately fascinate me. Certainly, the avenues of interest could easily stem or roots themselves to fashion, music, art, their histories and the social consciousness whose shoulders they stand atop on but the industry, its figureheads and the variety of characters from the tragically mundane to the pretentious eccentric to even an unassuming artist is a case and a social study that merits discussion as a micro-verse to an even larger picture.

An international industry that spans from the lowly street barber to the high fashion editorialist is at the heart of a global vanity, but at the same time, its principles can institute concepts of precision, craftsmanship and geometry than any laymen can give credit to.
