The Beautiful Life of Vidal Sassoon

Pop Life
The "shenanigans" Sassoon refers to are the circumstances around the sale of his product line (which was discontinued in the U.S. in 2002 but is still sold in Asia), as well as his network of namesake salons and academies. Regardless, the man belongs in the hairdressing hall of fame, and Gordon's upcoming film, as well as two new books, should secure his position there. In April, Vidal: The Autobiography (Macmillan U.K., 2010) hits U.S. shores, and also coming soon, Assouline will release a Pop art tribute to Sassoon in pictures.
