Vidal Sassoon, one of the most important hairdressers in the 60s & Swinging London icon, passed away 2 days ago at the age of 84. Sassoon is best remembered for leading a hair revolution which encouraged easy to manage and handle hair, departing from the traditional salon look.
He became an icon when he created the geometric-wedge shaped bob, like the one he is creating for 60s Mod designer Mary Quant in 1964. Vidal Sassoon also made Hollywood history when he transformed Mia Farrow's hair into a delicate pixie cut for "Rosemary's Baby".
