Vidal Sassoon the hair stylist behind the ‘bob’ has died.
SASSOON DIES AT 84
CNN are reporting that Vidal Sassoon, the legendary hairstylist, died of “apparent natural causes” at his Los Angeles home Wednesday morning, a Los Angeles police spokesman said. He was 84.
Sassoon was always one of my favourite ‘characters’ on the hair care scene, he was always so entertaining to watch. He is also a British native and spent several years in an Orphanage after his Mother became unable to look after him. Later in life he got an apprenticeship at a local barbers shop and the rest is history.
He went onto create the classic ‘bob’ hairstyle and a whole range of products which allowed woman to ‘wash and wear’ his styles. He was also CBE holder and a film of his life was released in 2012.
