This isn’t a story about hair. Rather, it is a story of passion, design, vision and continuous self invention. I find his tireless dedication to his craft to be a true inspiration. Regardless of medium, every designer must embrace these, pausing to question, challenge and redefine what is expected and accepted. From that personal exploration of craft, comes innovation. Vidal Sassoon has a story to tell. It is a tale which expresses his belief in the connectivity of the arts; his artistic influences based on architecture, culture and art. Vidal Sassoon reminds us what is possible with the “right commitment and passion”.
