Vidal Sassoon was a true visionary, not just as a master of several iconic hairstyles and cutting techniques but for from what I recall the first hair guru to become celebrity stylist bringing a new glamour to Hollywood not to mention the fashion world. Vidal Sassoon also brought product branding to the mainstream. I was an early fan of his shampoo's and conditioners - loved the smell and what his products did to my hair.
During my days living in London, I went to one of his Academy's after reading an article in British VOGUE to get a bob. Being at The Vidal Sassoon Academy was my first experience in a truly high end salon. I was fascinated by the coloring and cuts being done and felt very pampered. My stylist Aitch Peters went on to become Senior Creative Director for Vidal Sassoon.
