‘Vidal Sassoon The Movie’ Tells the Story Behind the Icon

January 19, 2011 • Beauty, Yahoo


Get your Netflix queue ready! Phase4Films has just announced the release date and info for 'Vidal Sassoon The Movie'. The film documents the life and career of world-renowned hair icon Vidal Sassoon, touching on over 80 years of revolution in the beauty and haircare industry and revealing the inspirational story of how one man changed the world with a pair of scissors.

The film traces Sassoon’s path from a London orphanage to international success and celebrity. It follows Michael Gordon, founder of the haircare company Bumble and bumble, as he sets out to document Vidal's life in a richly visual book. The story recalls accounts of Sassoon's early life amid war and poverty and a lack of support from his family. Yet despite all odds, he managed to pursue his dream as a game changer in the world of hairdressing, eventually modernizing the old-fashioned world of hair and using architecture to literally change the look of a generation.


Today, salons, schools and products from all over the world follow in Sassoon's teachings and use his tag line, “if you don’t look good we don’t look good” as a defined cultural touchstone.

Phase4 Films will release 'Vidal Sassoon The Movie' on February 11, 2011 in New York; February 18, 2011 in Los Angeles, and other markets nationwide in late February and March 2011.

    Vidal Sassoon is more than just a hairdresser-he’s a rock star, an artist, a craftsman who “changed the world with a pair of scissors.” With the geometric, Bauhaus-inspired hairdos he pioneered in the 1960s and his “wash and wear” philosophy that liberated generations of women from the tyranny of the salon, Sassoon revolutionized the art of hairstyling and left an indelible mark on popular culture.
