Saco is a new hairdressing salon, spa and hair school based in London's Covent Garden and Montreal's Notre Dame West. Offering hairdressing education and seminars and contemporary hair styling.
About the collection:
Primary is designed to illustrate a purity of shape discipline of technique. The hairstyles collection is inspired by the New Wave movement of the late 70s & early 80s. Post-punk artists in the UK, US & Germany led the way towards a
new no-frills approach to the arts. This anti-pop culture reflected the bleak horizons of the times, producing dark and sombre visions which embraced new technologies and simplified structures.
