I've always loved hair and fashion, so the name Vidal Sassoon definitely has a specific connotation for me. So it was with great interest I listened to an interview with him on NPR regarding the documentary of his life. Very interesting to hear how a man came from such abject poverty to creating iconoclastic hairstyles.
The NPR article also has a slide show of Sassoon's famous hairstyles. I had one in the 80s, the asymmetrical cut. It was a fun trip down memory lane to see some of those famous hairstyles.
