Vidal Sassoon: Trendsetter and Hairdresser

Last week, trendsetter and hairdresser extraordinaire, Vidal Sassoon passed away. Known best for revolutionizing the haircut and the way women took care of their hair, we took a look at some of his past work and fell in love all over again. Sassoon’s own mother had a premonition that her son would be a very successful hairdresser. Sassoon created the angular haircut known as the bob.
