Vidal Sassoon, the pioneer of the “the bob” died today in his Los Angeles home aged 84.
The London-born hair stylist started his career as an apprentice in a local barber and from there created the most iconic geometric hair cuts in the 1960’s – the bob and the even shorter five-point cut. Over the years he also developed a range of shampoos, styling products and chain’s of salons.
“To sculpt a head of hair with scissors is an art form. It’s in pursuit of art.” ~ Vidal Sassoon
