Vidal Sassoon Cuts Out of This World

The internationally famous beloved hair designer/stylist, Vidal Sassoon passed away with his family by his side at his home in California early this morning after a battle with Leukemia.

The 84 year old hair artist had quite a difficult life growing up. After his father’s untimely death his mother thought that it would be best to give the two brothers to a Jewish Orphanage where he remained until he was 14.

It was actually his mother that encouraged him to be a hair stylist…he wanted to be a soccer player, so after he served in the Israeli Army, he did what his mother suggested and never looked back.

He opened his first salon in London in 1954, and in 1963 he revolutionized the current popular hairstyles with modern, angular bob cuts. British designer Mary Quant, the woman responsible for popularizing mini skirts, made this haircut a hit by wearing it.

His famous saying “If you don’t look good, we don’t look good” was the catch phrase of his time and a damn good slogan.

He established his hair academies throughout the world and taught his student how to make women feel beautiful and confident with their hair styles.

Vidal left behind a wife and three children.
