An international company with a longstanding reputation for innovation, U.K. based Vidal Sassoon opened its only Washington DC area salon in Tysons Galleria in 1997. One of the world’s best recognized names in hairdressing, Sassoon’s prestigious salons offer women and men uniquely crafted cut and color techniques which create and develop the effortlessly sophisticated looks their clients love. Vidal Sassoon’s consistent focus on creative color and style is unmatched. Its team of colorists and stylists combine talent, technique, and passion for the craft to provide exceptional client services at Vidal Sassoon.

Vidal Sassoon has a unique way of separating the stylist and colorist worlds. This dissociation allows more focus, resulting in great consultations for both color and cut. At Sassoon Tysons Galleria a diverse and distinguished team of hairdressers share an astute awareness of fashion, trends and style, and are happy to pass on this knowledge to their willing clientele. Their charming, warm and personable air gives careful consideration to what will suit the individual. Their extraordinarily talented stylists will help determine the services that are best for the client during an individual consultation. Whatever look one chooses, Vidal Sassoon will help to achieve it.

Upon completion of Vidal Sassoon training all hairdressers are required to present an individual soiree that will focus on how to use creativity to build on the ever-changing nature of their craft. On Tuesday March 17 colorist Alvina Macrall invited her audience, a bevy of friends, family and fellow professionals into a storybook fantasy, inspired by ‘Alice in Wonderland’, in her spring soiree for Vidal Sassoon Tysons Galleria. She presented a potent mix of creative color and unique styles drawing inspiration from one of her favorite stories. Her presentation focused on popular concepts found in Lewis Carroll’s book such as the essence of imagination and fantasy, and explores as a theme perception vs. reality. Every cut and color resembled the celebrated characters from the classic story, their styled hair strewn with vivid colors and their faces made-up with evocative eye-shadows and shimmering bronze blush-on. Technically precise and creatively sound Alvina Macrall’s soiree was a tremendous success.
