Vidal Sassoon is more than just a hairdresser-he's a rock star, an artist, a craftsman who "changed the world with a pair of scissors." With the geometric, Bauhaus-inspired hairdos he pioneered in the 1960s and his "wash and wear" philosophy that liberated generations of women from the tyranny of the salon, Sassoon revolutionized the art of hairstyling and left an indelible mark on popular culture. This documentary traces with visual gusto the life of a self-made man whose passion and perseverance took him from a Jewish orphanage in London to the absolute pinnacle of his craft.

Whether you are involved in the hairdressing industry or not I think this DVD is an inspiration to all. A great educational tool for his business acumen, passion and sheer hard work which also charts the the reason we look like we do today. I recommend this for young and old, male and female.

I'm a hairdressing student, and Vidal's name crops up a lot in lessons. My teacher used to work in one of his salons and so I bought the DVD.

Awe inspiring Vidal comes from a poor Jewish family and spent part of his childhood in an orphanage. The film is his take on his own life, compiled under his own instruction and is fascinating to watch. He gives numerous interviews, using his vital charisma and enigmatic capacity to draw the viewer into his world of wealth, fame and success.

I will watch it over and over, he shares his ambitions, his successes alongside his failings in a manner that is refreshing to see.

Like other celebrities, he has a healthy lifestyle and I was awed to see how much swimming, yoga and how well he ate to keep in shape. He and his ex wife published a healthy living book in the seventies, to share their positive mantra of healthy lifestyle choices.

A lot to take in; but a bargain for anyone - not just hairdressers. What a nice guy.
