NYFW: Backstage Inspo

Vfiles fashion show

As a Sassoon Style Influencer, I frequently get exclusive back stage previews at the work of the NYC Sassoon Creative team who are a leader in the fashion world.  One example was seeing them work behind the scenes for the VFILES show during fashion week, an incubator for up and coming designers who in the past have gone on to sell at Opening Ceremony, Dover Street Market and Collette.

I’m no hairdresser, but after watching the entire Sassoon NYC creative team work their skills, it left me inspired to try different hair techniques – I’ll keep Elaine’s number on speed dial though – just in case…

Question:  Has your hairdresser ever encouraged you to try a new hair direction?
