Vidal Sassoon

The British Invasion of the 1960s was characterized by a number of iconic looks including the mini skirt in bold primary colors, perfectly sexy cat-like eye liner punctuating multi-layered pairs of long, false eyelashes and an asymmetrical haircut made famous by the hairstylist Vidal Sassoon. Creating geometric, short, angular bobs on armies of beautiful young women all over London made him a household name across the world and created a dynasty of hairdressing that remains a multi-million dollar industry today.

The Vidal Sassoon Salon of South Beach offers the signature, tailored looks at a full service (regularly priced) beauty bar and also serves as an international teaching academy for aspiring Sassoon stylists. Prices are set according to the cutter’s rank from Level One Stylist up to the Salon or Regional Director. A range of pampering beauty treatments is available for both men and women.

The Sassoon Academy offers brave young women the opportunity to serve as hair models as well as student subjects for both cut and color. For an $18 investment, a training stylist crafts a brand new look under the watchful eyes of an experienced instructor. While the transformation may take up to 3 hours, the final result promises to be dazzling. Choose from classic (traditional) or creative (edgy) styles and watch what happens! Reservations are required for either the regular salon or the academy and are available 7 days a week. 660 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (305) 672-3600
