Vidal Sassoon turned the hair industry upside down when he walked onto the scene in the 1950s.
Although the trend at that time was beehives and roller heavy locks, Sassoon decided to cut away from this, urging woman to liberate their locks and cut the time it took to style.
He introduced them to the short, sleek bob, which was easy to style and became the must-have look of the 60s, forming the integral iconic “Mary Quant” look as well as styling Nancy Kwan.
Sassoon opened his first salon in his London in 1954 but said he didn’t perfect his cut-is-everything approach until the mid-’60s.
RIP Vidal Sassoon.
