Vidal Sassoon passed away on the 9th May 2012. He was was visionary of hair styling, and revolutionized the world of hair cutting. They say he was the man that changed the world with a pair of scissors. I would not have the hair cut I have today if it wasn’t for this man. He cut hair into flattering geometric styles, with a ‘wash and wear’ philosophy that freed women from hours in the salon.
His perhaps his most famous hair cut must be Mia Farrow’s pixie cut in Rosemary’s Baby. Here is my hair, undoubtedly influenced by Sassoon. The epitome of low maintenance, and hopefully just a little bit elegant.
