Vidal Sassoon was a British and American hairstylist, businessman, and philanthropist. He was noted for re popularising a simple, close-cut geometric hair style called the Bob cut, worn by famous fashion designers like Mary Quantand film stars such as Mia Farrow, Goldie Hawn, Cameron Diaz, Nastassja Kinski and Helen Mirren for over 60 years, the reputation of Sassoon Academy has been built on developing and providing world-class education at our academies and education centers around the globe. In 1964, Sassoon created a short, angular hairstyle cut on a horizontal plane that was the recreation of the classic “bob cut.” His geometric haircuts seemed to be severely cut, but were entirely lacquer-free, relying on the natural shine of the hair for effect. Advertising and cosmetics executive Natalie Donay is credited with discovering Sassoon in London and bringing him to the United States, where in 1965 he opened his first New York City salon, on Madison Avenue.
