*Stepping into Vidal Sassoon’s home is like stepping ………London Fashion Week, Paris, Milan, Saõ Paulo, Miami, New York Fashion Week ……..All the action from the fashion shows, front rows, backstage and parties.*

I miss that feeling:-(

Fashion week Vidal Sassoon article:







It’s about time. Someone finally realized the Hairdressing community should have an upgraded title.Just as dressmaker upgraded to Fashion Designer.But, education comes with the upgraded title.Notably not everyone can be called  a Fashion Designer. Same goes for hair or should I say  Hair Desgners?Finaly……….I have being waiting for this day to come. And here it is.  My design Thesis of 2003 I quoted.” The only profession that still has and old title is hairdressing.”Adriana Sassoon

Elan Sassoon  son of famed Vidal Sassoon is launching his line of hair care….Sojourn by elan s.

Elan Sassoon's New Haircare line, Sojourn. Sojourn Shampoo Moisture: All I have to say about this shampoo is that after applying and lathering it through my hair, it felt so moisturized I didn’t think I needed any conditioner to accompany it! The shampoo smells wonderful – with a hint of citrus. It left my hair healthy-looking and silky soft to the touch. I can definitely understand the power of the exclusive Keratin Cashmere Protein they use in this product – it does leave your hair permanently conditioned.Sojourn Conditioner Moisture: Okay…so I know I just said that I didn’t necessarily need the conditioner after the shampoo, but I used it anyways—and guess what, my hair was even MORE moisturized. I used both the shampoo and the conditioner first thing in the morning right after I woke up. My ‘bed head’ hair had tangles galore. After using this conditioner my hair felt as if I brushed them all out. On the bottle it advises you to leave the product in for two to three minutes (so it acts more like a deep conditioner). I saw a result after one minute.
Conditioner Moisture, Texture Molding Paste, Shampoo Moisture, Monoi Oil

Sojourn Monoi Oil:

In other words. Wonder oil. It’s an ultra-light yet deep conditioning treatment specially formulated for chemically treated, dry, frizzy or environmentally damaged hair. This hydrating oil absorbs almost instantly and it doesn’t leave any residue or build up. When you first apply it, you can feel it in the hair. After about 15 minutes you can’t even tell it’s there. Hair feels a lot softer after this product.

Sojourn Texture Molding Paste: This paste has a thicker texture than the taffy, so it enables you to add a little more definition to any cut or style. You can use this product to create soft and loose curls or to stand hair straight up.

Sojourn Leave-in Detangler: it’s good to use for a little extra moisture and for tangle-protection! Comb this product through with a large toothcomb, and know that it can be used alone or before applying products.

 Elan Sassoon's New Haircare line, Sojourn. Sojourn Shampoo Colour Preserve: This is formulated with a potent plant-derived UV inhibitor for maximum protection against environmental free radical damage caused by UV light. The low pH locks in color and prevents premature fading for richer, vibrant, longer lasting color and shine.A few years ago, I dyed my hair a purple–maroon color. Since I was a lifeguard at that time I had no choice but to bake in the sun pretty much every day. After all that sun, my hair turned orange and definitely did not resemble its original color. Sounds like this product would have solved that problem…Sojourn Conditioner Colour Preserve: This product provides extra UV protection for colored, chemically treated hair as well as hair that has been overexposed to the harsh effects of heat, wind and the sun. Works just like Sojourn Moisture Conditioner.
Conditioner Colour Preserve, Sculpting Taffy, Shampoo Colour Preserve, Thermal Protection Straightener

Sojourn Sculpting Taffy:
I used a small amount on my hair while it was dry (you can use it on wet hair too). It added a little texture/separation to my layers and smells marvelous — like roses! This is an all-in-one sculpting tool that gives extra hold, shine and protection to long, short, or in-between styles. Contains maracuja oil, so it fortifies hair as it styles.

Sojourn Thermal Protection Straightener: I found this is a useful product. I have used it for the past week before I straighten my hair with a flatiron. In any situation, you should apply it BEFORE applying heat on dry hair. I sprayed it on my hair from roots to ends, one section at a time for maximum protection and moisture.

Sojourn Wet/Dry Volume Gel: I took about a quarter amount of this gel and applied it at the ends to my roots. It left my hair weightless and soft. After blow-drying my hair it was like Va-Voom Volume! It works also in dry hair for a more piece-y look.So what was my favorite aspect about the entire collection besides the healthy effect it had on my hair? The scent. Floral, Herbal, Citrus…I got a surprise from ever bottle I opened. Trying out Sojourn was definitely a pleasant experience.  Elan Sassoon's New Haircare line, Sojourn.

“My Intangible Truth”
Up Close and Personal with Bruno Mascolo


Walking along Davis street in London’s Mayfair. One of the smartest streets in central London in the mid 1970s, I saw a new beauty salon that had been featured in the trade magazine Hairdressers journal: “Toni&Guy”Four brothers Toni, Bruno, Guy and Anthony had been achieving some editorial coverage for their hair photographs. Their original salon was in a south London suburb Balham. Now they were aiming there sights high and the focus was on making a name and reputation for themselves bang in the heart of London’s Davis street, a stones throw from Bond street. You have to dedicate heart and soul mind and body on being a success, you have to give up so much at an early age.

Bruno Mascolo,Shane-,Harold Leighton and Guy Mascolo

I had already joined Glemby International (now part of the Regis group)  whose office was just around the corner in Grosvenor street. My walks through Mayfair were a daily ritual to see the beautiful women coming out of the top hairdressing salons, Martin Douglas, Rene, Raymond, Steiner, Dumas and Vidal Sassoon to name a few.

My next free time I walked into their salon and introduced myself to the brothers and from that time on we have been friends. I have watch them grow  in the world of fashion and become world statesmen photographer and product magnates into multi millionaires. Their name is around the globe in hair, their products are advertised in Vogue, Womens Wear Daily Harpers Bazaar internationally. If they sneeze they are written up in the media!

The names of there products range from Toni&Guy BedHead, Catwalk,TIGi, S Factor and makeup are sold around the world. In 2009 tragic news that Guy a talent in hair music writing, brother mentor and friend died suddenly some six weeks after they had sold part of the company to Unilever.  Like their father Guy had a huge passion with hair and  music, the brothers all mixed with artist musicians editors and grew so close developing their outside talents in the arts’ Guy’s talent and passion about his music art football and still playing in his sixties. His art captured the very essence of subjects and often sold his paintings to raise money for charities. As a talented guitarist he and all the brothers had such artistic talent, maybe one day there works will be in a museum!  Elder brother Tony went his own way with his family still in the hair salon business in Europe.

Today Bruno is CEO, Anthony the youngest and Image producer trend setter with hair and photography lives out of Battersea London and part on an air plane traveling the globe. Open almost any fashion magazine and you will always see there advertising on there product lines that stands out alongside L’Oreal, Paul Mitchell, Redken.

To mention the talent of the brothers in one feature is impossible and hope that I can show you the art side of the image maker Anthony Hairdresser and photographer. With offices and homes in London Dallas and LA they travel the world teaching training at hair shows almost weekly, an amazing task even at a young age.

In 2008 I was privilege to be asked to visit Bruno and Guy in Dallas to see the structure, workings of this vast organization and was astounded to see how they had grown since the mid 1970’s. On visiting Bruno’s home I saw his other side – an artist that has given me the insight of this talented man and given me the opportunity to show and tell and to share with readers of  The Epoch Times in this EXCLUSIVE interview. Not normally seen in this light. I felt the story had to be told and in Bruno’s words below with his own words “Intangible Truth”.

Discovering one’s passion can be as easy as awaking one morning to a divine epiphany of direction for your talent, energy, and love, or it can be a long and exacting process of trial and error.  arturo’s journey to his passion for photography has been a mix of both extremes, leading him on a fascinating and fulfilling adventure towards self-knowledge and satisfaction. Studying, practicing, and teaching in the areas of science, business administration, literature, fine arts, and the martial arts, arturo achieved multiple degrees in these themes before finally arriving at his current point of absolute allegiance to and enthrallment with the art of photography.

Forever fascinated with Beauty, arturo has found a way through photography to create images of magnificence that reflect and affirm his personal vision and perception of the aesthetics. When he is not shooting, arturo practices vinyasa yoga, he is also a self-proclaimed, devoted student of the “Science of Personal Achievement.” Constantly seeking knowledge and enrichment, arturo has traveled within and experienced the cultures of thirty different countries and has studied in France, the United States, and Mexico, but he now spends the majority of his time between Florida and Massachusetts in the pursuit of his passion .
