THE MAN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS***Видал Сассун


Vidal Sassoon, (1928 – 2012) was a British hairdresser credited with creating the hairstyle known as "The Bob.".  Due to the popularity of his styles, he was described as "a rock star, an artist and a craftsman who 'changed the world with a pair of scissors.'" His clients included Hollywood stars such as Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor as well as the model Jean Shrimpton and fashion designer Mary Quant who called him the ‘Chanel of hair’. 
His "wash and wear" philosophy liberated women from the "tyranny of the salon" and "revolutionized the art of hairstyling".He changed the lives and looks of women everywhere with his 1960’s geometric cuts that allowed women to spend less time on their appearance and still look fabulous. 
He opened his first salon in 1954 in London. Sassoon's styles became "emblematic of freedom and good health" and their popularity allowed him to open the first chain of worldwide hair styling salons, complemented by his hair-treatment products. Today salons increased to five in only city of London and extended to England, Europe, USA and Canada. But the shout it’s still the same. Beat. Revolutionary cuts, today as at that time, for square, geodesic shapes that are unbelievably poetic and sophisticated.  Graduated colors , graphic perimeter shape fringes decorate faces with a romantic rock allure. 
After building a business with salons and styling products, Sassoon sold the rights to his name to Richardson-Vicks, a U.S. health and beauty supply company, in 1983. At that time his hair products alone were netting Vidal Sassoon Inc about $113 million dollars a year. Procter&Gamble acquired Richardson-Vicks in 1985, and continued making products using the Sassoon name.
In 1982, Sassoon started the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism. After selling his company, he then worked towards philanthropic causes such as the Boys Clubs of America and the Performing Arts Council of the Music Center of LA via his Vidal Sassoon Foundation.

Видал Сассун (1928 -  2012) — британский парикмахер, известный стилист и изобретатель прически «боб», изменили мир парой ножниц.
Его клиентами были звезды Голливуда, такие как Ава Гарднер, Рита Хейворт и Элизабет Тейлор, а также модель Жан Шримптон и дизайнер Мэри Квант, которые называли его «Шанель волос«.
Сассун придумал модные пышные прически 50-х годов, а мировую известность получил после изобретения стрижки «боб», которая и сейчас пользуется огромной популярностью. Он изменил жизнь женщин ,придумал несколько форм стрижек, которые позволили женщинам тратить меньше времени на их внешний вид и по-прежнему выглядит потрясающе.
Он начал свою карьеру в середине прошлого века как скромный парикмахер, а через несколько десятков лет превратил свое имя в бренд, открыв сеть салонов и запустив линейку средств для ухода за волосами, его имя вскоре стало узнаваемым брендом. Шампунь для волос корпорации «Procter & Gamble » выпускался под его именем. В 2002 году сеть салонов Сассуна была продана Regis Corporation.
В 1982 году Сассун основал Международный центр Видала Сассуна по изучению антисемитизма (SICSA).
Сассун был автором нескольких книг, в том числе «A Year of Beauty and Health» в соавторстве с бывшей женой. Он также участвовал в телесериале «Your New Day with Vidal Sassoon» в конце 1970-х годов.







He shocked the world when he chopped off actress Mia Farrow's hair in 1967 for the movie Rosemary's Baby and gave her the pixie still worn by many actresses today such as Emma Watson , Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, Victoria Beckham, Gennifer Goodwin and Alyssa Milano.

















































































He certainly contributed to the world of fashion through hair design. His legacy will live on...
