VIDAL SASSOON: the Master of geometrical haircut

Born January 17, 1928 (1928-01-17) (age 82)
Sassoon is a father of modernist style and has also been a key force in the commercial direction of hair styling, turning its craft in to a multi-million dollar industry.

Vidal Sassoon

In 1963, Sassoon created a short, angular hairstyle cut on a horizontal plane that was the recreation of the classic "bob cut." His geometric haircuts seemed to be severely cut, but were entirely lacquer-free, relying on the natural shine of the hair for effect.

Sassoon was the real life inspiration for the 2008 Hollywood production, You Don't Mess With The Zohan starring Adam Sandler and Emanuelle Chiriqui, which is a loose interpretation of Sassoon's real life.

"The only place where success comes before work is a dictionary."
