The hair master takes over Tribeca

Vidal Sassoon The Movie, a flick about the life and times of the legendary hair master himself, recently premiered at NYC’s Tribeca Film Festival. Sassoon (who apparently also inspired Don’t Mess with the Zohan starring Adam Sandler) got his start in London in the sixties, after his early days in an orphanage and serving as a soldier in Israel. The film took over 3 years to film and features interviews with family members, former staff, reporters, and historians. One of the interviewees is Charles Booth, who was the first stylist to bring the Vidal Sassoon techniques to Canada, where he eventually launched his popular hair care line La Coupe (which means “the cut”). Stay tuned for an accompanying book to be released about Sassoon this Spring.
