Vivienne Mackinder “Bauhaus Rocks”


Vivienne Mackinder “Bauhaus Rocks”

There’s something about Bauhaus – the 20th German artistic movement – that inspires hairdressers to do magnificent things with hair.  One of Vidal Sassoon’s early collections was inspired by this very thing – and look where he is today!  His looks were characterized by strong geometric shapes that were very structured and controlled, which is what Bauhaus was all about – architectural, structured design.

Now, in 2008, Bauhaus (and Sassoon) still stir up motivation for modern day hairdressers.  In her latest collection “Bauhaus Rocks,” Vivienne Mackinder takes her own approach to her mentor Sassoon’s concept, using a razor to allow for movement and flow in the hair. “Recent trends in razor cutting have been defined by very jagged edges. I wanted to move away from that and show how the classic cuts can be achieved through the precision of razor cutting,” says Mackinder.

“Bauhaus Rocks” is defined by an edgy mixture of angles designed to complement the symmetry of the face and bone structure. Strong blocks of color then highlight the architecture in each hair design.
