Vidal Sassoon Dead at 84

Vidal Sassoon

Vidal Sassoon was found dead at his Mulholland Drive home, authorities said.
Sources say Sassoon died after an unspecified illness and that family was by his side. 
Sassoon, hugely influential in the hair care and fashion worlds, was the subject of a 2010 documentary.
In 1954, he opened his first salon in London. "I gave myself five years. If I couldn't change anything, I was out of there."
"When I first came into hair, women were coming in and you'd place a hat on their hair and you'd dress their hair around it," says Sassoon. "We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in."
He eventually opened a New York salon. In 1973, his hair-care products debuted to the trade. A couple of years later, he moved to Los Angeles, and by 1980, he even briefly had his own American television talk show. It was quite a life for a poor boy from London's East End.
