Another Sad Loss…

I know I just wrote a blog about people that have passed, but a few days ago I heard of another sad loss… Vidal Sassoon has passed away today.

I have been working in the “Hair World” for 8 years off-and-on and was lucky to have been able to speak to Vidal Sassoon. I was blessed to have met so many world renowned hair stylists. Including the characters of reality with the superincumbent personalities, yet there are quite many of the sweet and Vidal was one of the nicest most humble people I was fortunate enough to speak to. He is an amazing artist and has become one of the most influential hair stylist in the world. His technique was new & modern in a sense for its era. The English hairdresser is known for creating the “Bauhaus-inspired” hair style, aka the wedge bob. His popularity of his styles gave him the recognition of being  “a rock star, an artist, {and} a craftsman who changed the world with a pair of scissors.” He will be dearly missed.
