Vidal Sassoon Remembered By Michael Caine, Nicky Clarke And John Frieda


Vidal Sassoon Michael Caine Nicky Clarke

Vidal Sassoon, the legendary hairstylist who died in May aged 84, was remembered in a memorial service at St Paul's Cathedral on Friday (October 12, 2012). Sassoon's friends and family, including Michael Caine, Nicky Clarke, John Frieda and artist Anish Kapoor gathered at the event to celebrate his extraordinary life.

Born in London in 1928, Sassoon's mother Betty was forced to put him and his brother in an orphanage, visiting them once a month. However, it was Betty who introduced a young Vidal to Adolph Cohen, the owner of a local hair salon, where he impressed as a shampoo boy. The rest, as they say, is history and Sassoon became the world's most famous and influential hairdresser. After fighting for the Israeli army in 1948, he returned to London and recreated the classic bob, which encapsulated the spirit of the Swinging Sixties. He also created Mia Farrow's classic pixie-cut for the movie Rosemary's Baby - a style since favoured by the likes of Emma Watson, Natalie Portman and Annie Lennox. Sassoon's son Elan gave a touching but funny speech at the memorial ceremony, insisting, "Dad wouldn't want me to be too serious."

A new photography exhibition titled 'Vidal Sassoon: How One Man Changed The World With A Pair Of Scissors' by Michael Gordon runs at Somerset House until October 28, 2012.
