The legend in Hair dressing, Vidal Sassoon, died at 84 back in May. This man deserves a thank you and is a true legend to this industry. He changed hair styling forever in the 1950’s buy implementing architectural design into haircuts and freeing women from once a week hairdo’s and roller sets
“When I first came into hair, women were coming in and you’d place a hat on their hair and you’d dress their hair around it,” says Sassoon. “We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in.”
I see his style and vison in hair style trends each and every year. They are truly timeless and GENIUS! He inspired so many by wanting to teach others and help them to be come a success all on their own. Having a vision to change how women wore their hair and the courage to go out on a limb and open a salon of his own and start his own product line, inspired so many of us to want the same for our career in the cosmetology industry.
Thank you Vidal for your vision, talent and courage. Pure genius and such an inspiration! Rest in Peace!
