San Francisco, CA (January 17, 2013) – Top San Francisco salons have partnered to celebrate the life of Vidal Sassoon, one of the hair industries most influential and innovative artists, with VS85.
This first annual event will host guests on Vidal Sassoon’s birthday; Thursday, January 17, 2013 between 7pm – 11pm at The Green Room in San Francisco, CA. In the spirit of celebrating life, guests will enjoy good food, good drinks, good music and a showcase of what Vidal Sassoon lived and breathed: Great Hairstyles. The Green Room will provide the backdrop for a runway presentation of models wearing wigs of Vidal Sassoon inspired hairstyles, which will also be up for auction. Participating San Francisco salons will be cutting and styling the wigs presented and up for live and silent auction. The event will also host a silent auction of fun and unique prizes, showcase live musicians, and have fun and inspiring event activities for guests to enjoy.
Inspired by Mr Sassoon’s philanthropic contributions, VS85 will raise donations and awareness to Project Open Hand, a San Francisco non-profit that provides meals and groceries for people living with HIV/AIDS, homebound critical illnesses and seniors in San Francisco County. As a local organization that has been providing services for over 60 years, Project Open Hand is the perfect partner and beneficiary to raise awareness for. With so many hair and beauty salons in San Francisco event organizers want to start an annual event with the objective to unify the industry. What better way to come together than to celebrate an icon on his birthday and remember what he has done to inspire all of us in the industry? VS85 invites anyone and everyone who wants to celebrate the life of a true legend, Vidal Sassoon, and give back to a great cause.
