Remembering Vidal Sassoon

In a tribute to Vidal Sassoon, who sadly passed away yesterday, The Times has a beautiful article by Tim Teeman, who recalls meeting and interviewing him in 2010.

Sassoon’s success is a true rags to riches story – a boy who spent his early years in an orphanage but whose life changed course due to an apprenticeship at a Whitechapel barbers and his invention of the ‘bob’: he went on to build a £300m global hairdressing empire.
