                                                 Know no Rules

                                                   Deconstructivism, the Spring Summer
                                                   collection from Sassoon Academy takes
                                                the modernity of the Belgian De-
                                          Constructionists in combination with the
                               classicism of the Renaissance masters. The result - pure
                                  technique plus innovative experimentation. Take a look.
                                      If you do not know the rules, you can't break them and if you can't
                                           construct great haircuts you can't deconstruct them to make
                                           even better hair styles. That's the principle of Sassoon's latest
                                           collection, Deconstructivism.
                                          Inspired by a combination of the renaissance in Florence in the
                                           1450s and the Antwerp Six in Holland in the mid-nineties,
                                             Deconstructivism is all about re-thinking the way things
                                                are done by and going against the norm.
                                                   The emphasis of the collection is on
                                                     Deconstructing a strong shape using a weaving
                                                       technique that mirrors the way that colour is
                                                              The key to the look is to a strong internal

shape, with rounded lines, that is then cut into and
personalised to flatter the Deconstructive, understated
clothing trend that is prevalent at present.
Complementing the Deconstructed styles, was a new
movement in colour. Gone are flashes of colour coming
and in their place comes a new concept: non-colour.
Key tones included violets bled with red and blood orange
or blondes combined with blue greys and slate tones to
create a look mirroring petrol mixing water.

"Deconstruction doesn't mean no shape. You
have to construct the hairstyle in order to take
away. At the moment, we are seeing lost of
Deconstructed looks around that have an
understated feel and these hairstyles really suit that
trend." - Sassoon creative director Mark Heyes
The Cut: "Classic Sassoon shapes conceal an intricate internal
dynamic. When combed flat, the hair remains contemporary, when
pushed around, it kicks out at odd angles and gives hair hyper-
mobility. Cuts have visible invisibility, classic, compact and clean in
their external shape, subversive, layered and hyper-mobile
Colour: "In this collection, colours complement
shapes rather than over-complicating them.
Elliptical architectronic lines and parabolic arches
curve around the head creating a complex
framework of selections. Non-colours fade in
and out - purple, earth, coal, navy and olive
green. Matt and shine work together to
create subtle shape and texture.

        With our television sets getting sharper,

        close ups and even web cams are now

including The Lakme salons, that of
noted hair stylist Javed Habib,
VLCC, Mumbai's Enrich, the
premium Limelight, family salon

international Salon chains. In 2007 the
ASK Group had also invested in the
Mumbai based franchisee of French
salon Jean Claude Biguine (JCB). The
JCB House of Beauty is a Paris based
global chain of salons and spas amounting
to Euro150 million spanning 17 countries

that Australia's biggest franchised
hairdressing chain is expanding to India
and has partnered with a billion dollar
Indian company as master franchisee. The chain

                                               The high definition camera technology has given the make-up artists
                                               around the world a new challenge. Thankfully we have the answer.

                                               In the modern era, professional make-up is all about doing elaborate
                                               make-up, while not being found out that make-up has been applied. It's
                                               about creating a natural look without the make-up being very noticeable.

colors being micro pigmented provide an excellent coverage while appearing natural at the same time.
Airbrush make-up dries very quickly & afterwards will not rub off or smudge. Application is straightforward- its simple &
practical spray form. We also have a very good spray on moisturizing product to render the skin with its natural glow even
after the entire make-up is done.
                      It is a novel technique to do make-up & also to do it quickly. There by allowing the make-up artist to
                      accommodate more clients if you use your airbrush in the right way. You may also use Airbrush as a
                      finishing touch over a foundation to makes the foundation stronger and more even. The make-up
                      looks very natural and you can blend away the colours very nicely with each other.
                      The advantage of airbrush make-up in general is that it is more hygienic, quick
                      and offers a good coverage.
