Vidal Sassoon: the movie

Vidal Sassoon
“My scissors have lifted me out of Petticoat Lane in the East End of London and have taken me all over the world.”
Vidal Sassoon

Vidal Sassoon: the movie is a beautifully made, intelligent, brilliant, incredibly intimate and moving film about “a man who changed the world with a pair of scissors” and created the most iconic hair cut that stood the test of time.

Vidal Sassoon’s philosophy has always been very simple: do something you know you are good at and don’t waste time trying to be somebody you aren’t, achieve perfection in everything you do and remember to take care of your body and mind by eating well, staying active and learning something new every day.

He is not just a legend, but a source of inspiration that gets into your brain, under your skin and circulates through the body while you are watching the film.

I can’t recommend it highly enough.

  3. I absolutely adore him. I've been going to sassoon salons for the last 20 years and wouldn't have my hair doen anywhere else if you paid me. I have short hair and no one does pixie or bob look as well as sassoon hairdressers. I can't recommend him enough.
    And the film is great too. He is very inspiring in every way.
    Great post.
    Have a lovely weekend.
