My mentor and the man who has provided me with more inspiration than words can possibly describe passed away today. At the age of 84, Vidal Sassoon passed away at his home in Los Angeles with his family by his side. Famous for his geomteric Mary Quant bob cut, he truly changed the world of hair and single handledy revolutionized an entire industry.
Vidal had a remarkable impact on my career as a hair stylist and even more so, on the person I am today. His famous quote, which I had tattooed on my shoulder, was something that I repeated to myself a 1000 times over during the decision making process to open Soho. "If you don't do it, somebody else will".
RIP Vidal. A little bit of my soul went with you today and I will be forever grateful for your guiding light.
