Sassoon’s Son Starting Boston Hair Empire
Academy To Be Built Near Boston University
The Academy for Hair and Skin by Elan Sassoon is a 90,000-square-foot, $22 million school planned near Boston University.
The school, with its 180 dorm beds and a 200-seat auditorium, is the first of four planned nationwide. It’s supposed to open in the spring
Sassoon told The Boston Globe he chose Boston for the school because it’s a city of education.
Several years ago, Sassoon’s $31 million bid to purchase the Vidal Sassoon brand fell about $2 million short.
