Spanning 80 years of revolution in history and culture, Vidal Sassoon The Movie is the revealing, inspiring and relevant story of how one man changed the world with a pair of scissors. A true rags to riches tale, the film traces Sassoon's path from a London orphanage to international success and celebrity. Living through war and poverty the seeds of his future were spawned as young Vidal became driven to rise above the circumstances of his birth. Vidal Sassoon The Movie chronicles Sassoon from his experience as an Israeli soldier and years fighting fascism to his struggle to modernize the old fashioned world of hair.
Inspired by modern architecture, Sassoon's focus on geometric shapes and angles soon began to change the way women looked, ushering in the social revolutions of the 60's. With a long-standing focus on health and an inspirational drive, the film reflects Vidal's entrepreneurial spirit and profound influence on style and culture.
“Vidal Sassoon The Movie isn't just the story of a brilliant fashion idea that swept the globe. It is a euphoric account of one man's strenuous self invention.”—The New York Times
