• Short Summary

    Vidal Sassoon hair show in Dorchester hotel - nothing like his famous geometric simplicity.

  • Description

    Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair, London.

    C/U shot of painting showing torero and bull - a bull fighting scene. C/U shot of head of a girl placing herself in front of the picture. She is one of the models presenting the newest hair styles of the youngest and one of the most inspiring Mayfair's hair stylists Vidal Sassoon who "presents a new vogue - the Torro line, based on the return to fashion of longer hair."

    The girl has mid-length waved hair with a red stripe curling around the head in 'snake like fashion'. The effect is an elegant Spanish-look softened by the blond hair colour. M/S of the girl parading in front of a line of spectators.

    Second girl has short dark hair and red 'horns' on the front. C/U shot of the girl posing in front of a stylish flower arrangement. The third girl is also very Spanish-looking. Her short curly dark hair is pinned up by using lovely black and white hair cascade. She poses in front of the painting with a Mediterranean motif.

    Blond short-haired girl with yellow 'horns' is next. She poses in front of the flower arrangement. C/U of the next girl reveals red mid-length elegantly wavy hair with a lovely snake-style cascade - looks great.

    And for the end - the ultimate fifties look. Short simple blond hair pushed behind the ears by the 'comb spectacles' device. C/U shot of the girl wearing red thick 'cat eye' spectacles which go around her head combing and keeping her hair back.
