American Salon Exclusive: Matt Beck and Sally Rogerson

Sally Rogerson's passion for fashion, music and art culminated in a natural path to her career in hairdressing. After joining Vidal Sassoon at the age of 16 and working her way through the company, Sally earned the role of creative director at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, London. Ten years later Sally moved onto senior creative director at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, Los Angeles.

During Sally's twenty years with Vidal Sassoon, she worked as a platform artist; created trends in editorial shoots and acted as an international brand ambassador. Her years as a mentor and educator have helped inspire and develop legions of influential hairdressers who continue to value education and gain respect in their craft.

Sally sat down with Matt Beck at IBS NY to discuss her passion for designing programs and classes that speak to the unique needs of salons, stylists and cosmetology schools.
