Famed British hairdresser Vidal Sassoon has passed away, aged 84. According to The Los Angeles Times, Sassoon died at his Calfornia home "after an unspecified illness and that family were by his side." Often referred to as a man who "changed the world with a pair of scissors," Sassoon pioneered the bob haircut and was also behind Mia Farrow's iconic Rosemary's Baby pixie crop. In 2010 a documentary charting Sassoon's life, in particular his influence on culture, was released at the Tribeca Film Festival. Our thoughts are with Sassoon's family at this time.
