Developed and designed to be contemporary, relevant and forward thinking, Sassoon courses are delivered with passion, commitment and technical excellence. Celebrating cutting and colouring in its purest form, a Sassoon Academy education allows you to express your talent in full.
New collections developed by the International Sassoon Creative Team at the world renowned Sassoon Academy, London.
When Vidal Sassoon opened his first salon at 108 Bond Street, London in 1954 the teased bouffant and beehive dominated hair fashion.
Underpass; Inspired by Brutalism, a style that hit its peak in the 1970s, provided an uncompromising vision; it’s stripped back and honest ‘streets in the sky’ including London’s Trellick Tower by Erno Goldfinger celebrated the sculptural form of concrete.
There is beauty in the purity of Brutalist architecture – it’s clear in its form without any applied decoration. This season, inspiration is drawn from the Brutalist city and the freedom found down in the raw concrete of its underpasses. Austere architecture is subverted by graffiti and the physicality of skaters and free runners who make the space their own.
Welcome to the New SASSOON Director of Operations
Sassoon has announced the appointment of Stan Newton, Director of Operations for Sassoon Academy, North America. With over 30 years of experience in hair, Newton has worked with many top teams around the globe and will now support the Sassoon Education team in delivering world-class cutting and coloring education across North America.

“Spice Up Your Life” on Corden’s carpool karaoke car ride!
In a surprisingly short wait time, Victoria Beckham’s carpool karaoke segment aired last night.
“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”
“People ask me if I’m an artist or an architect. But I think they’re the same.”
“A lot of people don’t get it, but I design from the inside out so that the finished product looks inevitable somehow. I think it’s important to create spaces that people like to be in, that are humanistic.”
“Architecture is a small piece of this human equation, but for those of us who practice it, we believe in its potential to make a difference, to enlighten and to enrich the human experience, to penetrate the barriers of misunderstandin g and provide a beautiful context for life’s drama.”
“I think you’ve got to accept that certain things are in process that you can’t change, that you can’t overwhelm. The chaos of our cities, the randomness of our lives, the unpredictability of where you’re going to be in ten years from now – all of those things are weighing on us, and yet there is a certain glimmer of control. If you act a certain way, and talk a certain way, you’re going to draw certain forces to you.”
“Let me tell you one thing. In the world we live in, 98 per cent of what gets built and designed today is pure shit,” responded Gehry after raising his middle finger. “There’s no sense of design nor respect for humanity or anything. They’re bad buildings and that’s it.”
“Every now and then, however, a small number of people do something special. They’re very few. But – my God! – leave us in peace! We dedicate ourselves to our work. I don’t beg for work. I don’t have publicists. I’m not waiting for people to call me. I work with clients who have respect for the art of architecture. At the very least, don’t ask stupid questions like this.”
“I’m always trying to express movement, I was fascinated with the fold so basic to our first feelings of love and warmth. These ideas are scary as hell to tell to the client, they can reject you and they will. But create the logic for it as you go, stretch it into another place.”
8 Spruce Street, originally known as Beekman Tower and currently marketed as New York by Gehry, is a 76-story skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry in the New York City borough of Manhattan at 8 Spruce Street, between William and Nassau Streets, in Lower Manhattan, just south of City Hall Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Beekman Tower
This is the much-anticipated Frank Gehry-designed Lower Manhattan residential skyscraper, and it is now ready for renters. Located at 8 Spruce Street, just east of City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan, the 76-story rental apartment boasts of walls of stainless-steel panels and bay windows that rippled and curled like a zipper run amok.

👁🦋💃🏻Love the friends, the enemies even more!Love the friends, the enemies even more! The former accept us as we are, not the others!
As long as friends represent only continuation, enemies may represent renewal.
Staying as we are by time too kills in us innumerable possibilities of an improvement that is necessary and fundamental.
Not that we are obliged to give answers to all those who mistreat us, but in a conscious attitude of showing them the best of us sometimes proves to be a valuable find too.
We are always better than we think and can behave much better than we have behaved ourselves!
With each new look, from a possible friend or foe we are at the mercy of a very personal value judgment, but our counter-balance always represents one more step … Your added value will be if this step is positive and forward.
The directions of the steps, as well as decisions and thoughts, feelings are individual and nontransferable, but I think a retreat can be salutary unless it represents an escape or alienation.
Thus the clash between peers and people not so close is salutary and extremely important for the growth of each and every individual.
It is clear that we depend on having a certain degree of understanding and discernment, that we are freed from pride and vanity so that we may discern in whom our own vanity, pride, wickedness and envy are opposed to us. The other may be launching on us his own inability to live …
Only in this way will we be able to see in our enemies new opportunities for our individual and spiritual growth.
There are times that those we call enemies are full of reason to oppose us!
Love friends, enemies much more …
But all too much love, like all unmasked hate, that causes blindness is not good, nor promote good.💃🏻⭐️👁
Ame os amigos, os inimigos ainda mais! Os primeiros nos aceitam como somos, os outros não!
Enquanto os amigos representarem apenas continuação, os inimigos podem representar renovação.
Permanecer como somos por tempo demasiado mata em nós possibilidades inumeras de um aprimoramento que é necessário e fundamental.
Não que sejamos obrigados a dar respostas a todos os que nos destratam, mas numa atitude conciênte de lhes mostrar o melhor de nós por vezes se mostra um achado valioso demais.
Somos sempre melhores do que pensamos e podemos nos comportar bem melhor do que temos nos comportado!
A cada novo olhar, dum possível amigo ou inimigo estamos a mercê de um juizo de valor muito pessoal, mas o nosso contrapor representa sempre um passo a mais… Sua mais valia será se este passo for positivo e para frente.
As direções dos passos, bem como decisões e pensamentos, sentimentos são individuais e intransferiveis, mas penso que um recuo pode ser salutar exceto se não representar uma fuga ou alheamento.
Assim o embate entre pares e entre pessoas não tão afins é salutar e de extrema importância para o crescimento de cada e todo individuo.
Fica claro que dependemos de ter um certo grau de entendimento e dicernimento, estarmos despreendidos de orgulhos e vaidades para podermos divisarmos em quem se contrapõem á nós a sua própria vaidade, seu orgulho, maldade e inveja. O outro pode estar lançando em nós a sua própria incapacidade de viver…
Somente assim poderemos ver nos inimigos oportunidades novas para o nosso crescimento individual e espiritual.
Tem horas que aqueles que chamamos de inimigos estão cheios de razão ao se oporem a nós!
Ame os amigos, os inimigos bem mais…
Só que todo amor demasiado, como todo ódio desmensurado, que cause cegueira não é bom, nem promoverá o bem.👁🦋💃🏻

“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he or she really is.”

What started as a Florentine family shop in 1921 has since turned into a global sensation. Gucci, with its famed double-G logo and green-red stripes, launched with its now-iconic leather luggage, and from there built a luxury empire that spans across everything from women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and accessories, to beauty and home. Now, designer Alessandro Michele is making waves with his quirky-cool vibes, bringing an eclectic free-for-all to the house’s signature patterns, prints and silhouettes.
I am in love with this collection. Obsessed about it!
A three strap pump with the textured tiger head front buckle-a unique detail referencing the Greek god Dionysus. The heel is composed of embedded tonal crystals and an in relief snake-an important symbol throughout Gucci’s collections.
Alessandro Michele is an Italian fashion designer and business executive. He was appointed creative director of Gucci in January 2015, and is responsible for all of Gucci’s collections and global brand image.
I have a personal obsession about shoes. I think shoes are a very interesting product, the structure of shoes always fought my attention. They hold our whole bodies in such tiny heels. The perfect balance in Shoes for me are about beauty and comfort.
Sometime I see beautiful shoes but not comfortable at all. Well I am in love with Gucci this season. I’m taking this isnpiration to my interior designs for sure. Afterall we are all connected.
Carnaval im Rio 2017
The Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí is a purpose-built parade area built for the Rio Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The venue is also known as Passarela Professor Darcy Ribeiro or simply the Sambódromo in Portuguese or Sambadrome in English. It is located in the downtown area of Cidade Nova in Rio de Janeiro, and is the place where samba schools parade competitively each year during the Rio Carnival. The parades attract many thousands of Brazilians and foreign tourists each year, and the structure is also used as a multi-purpose performance venue. The structures of the Sambadrome were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012), and represent his first major work after the end of the Brazilian dictatorship of 1964-1985.
The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro (Portuguese: Carnaval) is a festival held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people per day on the streets. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723.
The typical Rio carnival parade is filled with revelers, floats, and adornments from numerous samba schools which are located in Rio (more than 200 approximately, divided into 5 leagues/ divisions). A samba school is composed of a collaboration of local neighbours that want to attend carnival together, with some kind of regional, geographical common background.
There is a special order that every school has to follow with their parade entries. Each school begins with the “comissão de frente” (“Front Commission” in English), that is the group of people from the school that appear first. Made of ten to fifteen people, the “comissão de frente” introduces the school and sets the mood and style of their presentation. These people have choreographed dances in fancy costumes that usually tell a short story.
Following the “comissão de frente” is the first float of the samba school, called “abre-alas” (“Opening Wing” in English). These are followed by the Mestre-sala and Porta-Bandeira (Master of Ceremonies and Flag Bearer), with one to 4 pairs, one active and 3 reserve, to lead the dancers, which include the old guard veterans and the “ala das baianas”, with the bateria at the rear and sometimes a brass section and guitars.
