R.I.P Vidal Sassoon "If You Don't Look Good, We Don't Look Good" Hairstyle Guru Died Today at Age 84

The Hairstylist guru Vidal Sassoon passed away in his Beverly Hills home today 5-9-2012 at age 84. When my mother was still a young girl back in the 1950s, women's hair was heavily styled, curled, teased into a shape that doesn't move and almost looks like you're wearing a helmet! until Vidal Sassoon came along in the 1960s, his creative vision revolutionize how women dress their hairs & set the complete new look in the world of fashion.

Here is the trailer of "Vidal Sassoon The Movie"


What made Vidal Sassoon's cut so revolutionary was his creative cuts that require almost no styling necessery!, you can just "Wash & Wear" and everything will just fell into place perfectly every time! He has liberated women all over the world & unshackled them from curling irons & hairsprays.

"My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous," Sassoon said in 1993 in the Los Angeles Times, "Women were going back to work, they were assuming their own power. They didn't have time to sit under the dryer anymore."

His "wash and wear" styles included the "Bob", the "Five-Point cut" and the "Greek Goddess," a short, tousled perm inspired by the "Afro-marvelous-looking women" he said he saw in New York's Harlem.
