Book Description

2 Oct 2012
A captivating look at the career of social and style revolutionary Vidal Sassoon. A visionary hairstylist who became a household name, Vidal Sassoon was an instrument of change during the cultural shifts of the 1960s. Inspired by Bauhaus architecture, Sassoon's career took off with the Nancy Kwan bob in 1963, followed by the boyish five-point haircut that blurred class and sexual distinctions in the unisex era. These low-maintenance styles signaled liberation from the constraints of the past and led to a mix of social strata in his Bond Street salon as both ladies and shopgirls had their hair trimmed side by side. His singular and iconic haircuts for tastemakers such as Grace Coddington and Mia Farrow charted a new course for ideals of feminine beauty. Combining fashion photography, candid snapshots, and recollections by Sassoon and members of his artistic circle, such as David Bailey, Terence Donovan, and Mary Quant, this book is a fascinating look at one man's driven efforts to transform style and the radical changes wrought by progressive fashion.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor design ruined this book 25 Nov 2012
By W. Wong
Verified Purchase
a book showcasing this amazing hair artist work should have been amazing and really focussed on the art being the hair & photography. unfortunately, the bad dated (80's 90's) graphic design overtook the limelight. there should have been more images of his work as well given the volume this man did. some pictures were just too small

4.0 out of 5 stars My wife loved it 28 April 2013
By Michael G. Simonetto - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ordered this for my wife, she found it fascinating. Given the time, money and anxiety women spend on their hair, it is a good history of a man who changed the whole industry. Also a bit salacious, as he slept with a lot of beautiful women.
