Vidal Sassoon, who punctured a lot of hair bubbles while Mary Quant was shaking up the fashion Establishment with her miniskirts and the Beatles were turning pop music inside out with their rock, is putting a curly platform under his famous geometric haircuts. At first glance, some of them look for all the world as if they are teased -- ballooning or merely poufing out from the head in assorted lengths and shapes. "Oh, no! Not in my salon (meaning any one of 19 in the United States and Europe)," said the boyish-looking, 45-year-old tycoon who now employs a creative team to keep his innovations going. Sassoon is, in a manner of speaking, riding a new permanent wave u n d e r such straight-top styles as the Pagoda, the Wedge and the Beret. BY WHAT he calls "Afro- perming" (what amounts to a shingle cut around the lower edges of a head of hair), he can make the straight top layers stand out from the head without a speck of teasing or back-cornbing. The top layers simply rest, float or what- have-you on their curly foundation. They're much softer-looking than his flat-to-the-head geometries, and he says they are j u s t as easy to care f o r . W h i c h e v e r w a y t h e w i n d blows, they fall right back into their shape. They all have variations. Basically, however, the Pagoda is a Buster Brown that extends out from the head like a Japanese lantern; the Wedge is a triangular cut up from the How Can If Q. How can I prevent glass jars and bottles that are to be stored away from acquiring a musty smell? A. Drop a clove or two into them as yon put them away.

RISK'S PLAZA de MOD A kanawha city open 'til 9 on Mondays Thursdays back, and the Beret is an asymmetrical (short on one side and longer on the other) cut that rests on the head like a French beret. Sassoon's team, under his final supervision, of course, did the Beret for fun for a show in France. "The French went wild over it!" he exclaimed. Wild enough, anyway, for Sassoon to figure he had a good look going. But Sassoon's new platform geometries are only about half his pitch for summer '74. His people are into a hew bag of coloring tricks, shading from dark to light from the bottom layers up in a way that you can't tell where one shade ends and the next begins. IT'S BEING done on blondes, brunettes and redheads. If you're in the mood for a red head, he has one that is a temptress, going from titian to a golden mango red. Virginia Cunningham, one of Sassoon's traveling top colorists, worked it out in a base color plus hand-painting technique that makes the hair look as if nature was in a good mood that day." "No matter what you do with color," she said, "it should come out looking shiny and healthy -- and natural." Asked by a visiting hairdresser what she would suggest for brown-haired women whose hair is graying and looks mousy, she replied without hesitation: "Highlight it with super-fine silver streaks. Don't go blonde." Sassoon, partly because he was part of London's mod squad and partly because his first famous cuts were so severe, is generally associated in the minds of the public with hair fashion for the young. To this he says, in effect, baloney. He shows his hairstyles on young models, certainly has his share of young customers, but says his cuts are designed just as much for older women. "You cut a head of hair according to a person's bone structure, and you keep your bones until you die. But if a woman is a balloon, has no bones to work with, there's not much you can do for her." His roster of famous clients includes quite a crowd of older women, including ZiZi Jeanmaire, Ruby Keeler and Patricia Neal. On the younger side, there are Liza Minnelli. Joey Heatherton, et al. And there's Mary Quant, still. Besides his 19 salons and two schools. Sassoon has extended his empire into lines of hair products. He also has wigs -- which is one way you can try a Sassoon without spending the next year crying if you don't like it.
