Sassoon brings hair styling exhibition to downtown L.A. Art Walk

Sassoon style is coming to Art WalkThose who doubt that hair styling is an art may want to check out a new offering at the monthly Art Walk in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday. 

Jeremy Davies-Barbala, senior creative director for Sassoon Salon in Beverly Hills, is orchestrating the premiere of Sassoon at the Art Walk, designed to highlight hair style as a creative statement.

Essentially, models in the windows of the Robert Reynolds Gallery will present a collection of artistic styles, focused on the most creative aspects of color and cuts. The presentation will occur in 20-minute increments from 8:15 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. at the gallery, 408 S. Spring St. 

I suspect the styles will go beyond the now-classic look the late Vidal Sassoon gave actress Nancy Kwan, shown here, in his heyday -- but even this one was considered ground-breaking in its time for the structure and architectural quality for which Sassoon became famous.

The downtown L.A. Art Walk happens on the second Thursday of each month, mostly in and around the galleries on Spring and Main streets between 2nd and 9th streets.
