Sassoon has been at the forefront of high quality education for more than 50 years. The leading edge of this education is the world renowned ABC | Cutting Hair the Sassoon Way system.  This is the cutting and finishing system that CAofB uses.  Our instructors receive extensive hands on training from the Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica every year.

These instructors return for on-going education and assessments. CAofB students will be learning from extremely well educated instructors, who truly understand the importance of maintaining the high standards of SA|SC.

CAofB students have the opportunity to attend demonstrations performed by the Sassoon Academy Creative Team.  These tailor-made demonstrations are annual, informative, exciting, inspiring, and specifically adapted for CAofB students.

ABC | COLOURING HAIR THE SASSOON WAY

The ABC method of Coloring hair is a comprehensive technical system, a system that defines the classic coloring techniques that the Sassoon Creative Team have refined over the past 50 years. It’s a three part series, represented by the letters ABC, comprising total, partial & combination color techniques.

These fundamental methods accentuate and define the dynamic lines of the Sassoon cuts. In their purest form or in combination, they provide a myriad of variations that continue to be intrinsic to the Sassoon look.

  • A knowledge and understanding of the World Renowned ABC | Coloring Hair the Sassoon Way
  • The ABC | Coloring Hair the Sassoon Way DVD set
  • The ABC | Coloring Hair the Sassoon Way Manual
  • A comprehension of the principles of Sassoon color theory and its application in hair design

At Sassoon, we believe that every student needs a thorough understanding of the principles of color theory and its application in hair design.
