Marv Smith of trendy Seattle salon the Hair Lounge, along with Alternative Salon Products, presented a spring hair show recently in Bellevue that paid homage to a stage full of all-stars.

The event re-united the legendary Visions Team, which had dominated Seattle hair for much of the past three decades.

The affair was accentuated with creative hairstyles ranging from neo-punk to classic sleek couture. The show had fantastic concept cutting and color by Richard Brassfield, R.J. Jones, Sasha LeBeau, Patty Sever, with special guest Peter Lee and the artistic visions of Michael Hall.

Assisted by Stacy Barrow, Smith and the crew performed some deft magic with chignons, braids and buns. The hair was sculpted close to the face with napes that held a variety of surprises.

The show’s finale was an exposition by Michael Hall, who presented creations of startling clarity plucked from every era and culture.

Rhonda Young, owner of Alternative Salon Products remarked at the show’s conclusion, “This was an amazing show. It’s wonderful to go back to basics and really enjoy being hairdressers.”

Vikki Lotz of Alternative Salon Products aptly stated the postscript to the event: “Young people in our industry need to find their heroes. The big manufactures have pushed aside our need for different fashion looks, solid techniques and role models. This show means that we are creating our own hair heroes in the state of Washington, we don’t have to travel to get close to them.”
