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
