More than just a brand, Mr. Sassoon is a revolutionary that helped to free women from the clutches of the 50's and liberate them with the low-maintenance hairstyles that are a defining part of the 1960s. From Mia Farrow to model-turned-fashion editor Grace Coddington and Andy Warhol, Vidal Sasson was inspired by the clean lines made popular with midcentury architecture and his influence on modern fashion and iconic film imagery is still very apparent today.
Craig Teper, director of the new biodocumentary Vidal Sassoon: The Movie has said that "[Vidal] actually helped create the social revolution of the '60s." This must-see film, about a man who changed the world with a pair of scissors, is now playing in NYC and Los Angeles.
