Motivational Vidal Sassoon Quotes and Sayings

Bring out the eyes.

Vidal Sassoon Quotes:- Vidal Sassoon (born. January 17, 1928, in Hammersmith, England) was a hairstylist who popularized the use of angular and easy-to-wear haircuts.

Sasson founded a multi-million dollar hair-products business and his work has been immortalized on magazine covers and by Hollywood. Like many ’60s icons, he rejected tradition and instead drew inspiration from modern architecture.

Sassoon’s hairstyles soon became their own kinds of landmarks. During the 1960s, his cuts became an icon of Swinging London just like the miniskirts designed by Mary Quant (who was also a client). When asked about the short crop in the film, Farrow’s character responds, “It’s Vidal Sassoon.

His work was featured on covers of Vogue magazine and one of his pixie cuts even appeared atop Mia Farrow in Roman Polanski’s 1968 film, Rosemary’s Baby.

In 1956, Sassoon married his first wife, Elaine Wood, whom he divorced in 1963. Four years later, he married actress Beverly Adams, and they had a son and two daughters before breaking up in 1980.

(His daughter, Catya, would later die of a drug overdose in 2002.) In 1983, he had a brief marriage to dressage champion and former model Janette Hartford-Davis.
