Vidal Sassoon Passes Away at Age 84

The industry mourns the loss of a hairstyling legend with the passing of Vidal Sassoon. He recently lost his 4 year battle with Leukemia at the age of 84.

Vidal left behind a legacy full of passion, innovation and revolution in the world of hair styling. He forever changed the industry by creating new shapes and styles to “wash and wear” such as the bob. He also created Vidal Sassoon Academies to teach aspiring stylists how to create the right cut based on a guest’s bone structure.

Vidal Sassoon’s mantra stated, “To sculpt a head of hair with scissors is an art form. It’s in pursuit of art.” He was a true visionary and will be greatly missed. See what some of our stylists had to say about his death.

“The whole foundation of my career was based on his technique” -Andrea

“Having been taught the Vidal Sassoon way in Beauty School has made for a strong start to my career” -Chelsea

“We lost the most influential and innovative hairdresser.” -Claire
