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 hair styles he pioneered in the 1960s and his 'wash and wear' philosophy, Sassoon revolutionised the art of hairstyling, leaving an indelible mark on popular culture. Sassoon literally changed the way that women look and cut their hair today. Spanning 80 years of revolution in culture, VIDAL SASSOON THE MOVIE takes a deeply intimate look into the life of this extraordinary man, whose influence far outreaches the industry he changed forever. A true rags to riches tale, the film traces Sassoon's path from a London orphanage to international success and celebrity. Through tireless hard work and commitment, he struggles to modernise the old-fashioned world of hair; with modern architecture as his inspiration. "I made up my mind, if I was going to be in hairdressing, I wanted to change things." VIDAL SASSOON THE MOVIE shows Sassoon to be not only one of the great innovators of our time, but a cultural life force as relevant today as ever.
