Today we lost a great. Not only for the beauty industry but for everyone.  Famed hairdresser and icon, Vidal Sassoon died today after a long battle with  Leukemia.

So lucky were we that Michael Gordon (founder of Bumble and Bumble) Produced a documentary on Vidal Sassoon’s life.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch it I highly recommend it.  He came a long way from his childhood  in an orphanage and a Jew during WWII to the inspiration he’s become today and will continue to be for generations to come.

I personally and very sad and will miss him.  When working for Vidal Sassoon I learned about his philosophies and will always appreciate the fact that he raised the bar for hairdressers all over the world; thereby helped in gaining a respect for hairdressers as professionals and they’re craft.  He inspired so many artists that started with Sassoon training: Tony and Guy, John Paul Mitchell, Tim Harley
