A captivating look at the career of social and style revolutionary Vidal Sassoon. A visionary hairstylist who became a household name, Vidal Sassoon was an instrument of change during the cultural shifts of the 1960s. His singular and iconic haircuts for tastemakers such as Grace Coddington and Mia Farrow charted a new course for ideals of feminine beauty.
Combining photography, artwork and film this display is a fascinating look at one man’s driven efforts to transform style and the radical changes wrought by progressive fashion.
