Inspired by the risqué underworld of 1920s Weimar, Vidal Sassoon's latest collection, Coquette, presents a woman who flirts with glamour, decadence and danger. "It's all curves and angles with iconic 1920s haircuts, such as the bob and the Eton crop," says Mark Hayes, international creative director. Kiss curls are drawn out into rounded triangles, while Clara Bow fringes swoop around to severe graduations and scissor-over-comb work. Cuts have disconnected stepped panels with scalloped curves and Cubist angles. —M.D.
Skincare products that are healthy for customers and for the environment are the focus of a new company called Green by Nature, which avoids harmful ingredients, such as parabens, sulfates and DEA, in favor of botanical extracts and essential oils. The company's eco-friendly practices also include using recyclable plastic packaging and donating a portion of its sales to 1% for the Planet, an alliance of businesses dedicated to protecting the environment. Shown here is the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, which contains beeswax and almond oil. greenbynaturebeauty.com —L.A.
