The Vidal Sassoon Haircut

Vidal Sassoon turned ordinary hair into a hairstyle.

Influenced by Bauhausby architecture, Vidal went on to put design and architecture into hair, giving it shape and volume.

Reading through the obituary is a soft reminder of the way Steve Jobs came up with his ideas, “creativity is just connecting things.”

Vidal had the same perfectionist style as Jobs with the objective to personalize his products for the customer.

To me hair meant geometry, angles. Cutting uneven shapes, as long as it suited that face and that bone structure. (link)

The fashion and design world will miss him.
