Goodbye to a true hair legend!

Keyword: vidal sassoon, hair legend, rip sassoon


After a long battle with leukemia, the hair world losses a legend at 84 years of age. Vidal Sassoon was the true inventor of the ‘wash and go’ hair styles we find women wearing today. He freed women from the bouffants which cut their time spent in salons in half.



He truly was a hair genius in every sense of the word.  He even marketed himself well.  Any stylist today can tell you which hair cuts were inspired by Sassoon. He branded styles, cuts and products which we all still use today!  In 1950, at only 26 years old he opened his first shop in London where he pretty much invented the bob cut.



Who doesn’t remember the saying “If you don’t look good, we don’t look good”? He was a hair icon and will be missed by many!  There is now a void in the hair world!


RIP Vidal Sassoon!

Sassoon is survived by his wife, three children and grandchildren.
