While the movie often focuses on Vidal Sassoon's quirky nature, it also offers a fascinating perspective into the ups and downs experienced by Vidal throughout his rags-to-riches tale. It's a must-see flick for anyone who has an appreciation for Vidal's classic cuts and the forms and textures of architecture — and, of course, for anyone who wants to be entertained by the octogenarian's sprightly ways.
It's long been known that Vidal Sassoon is a true artist, but what I was most surprised to discover about the 83-year-old is how much of a character he truly is. As you can imagine, after 65 years in the business, he has a lot of stories to tell, and he's further proof that if you're doing what makes you happy in life, it shows well into the golden years. Discover more about his fascinating life in Vidal Sassoon: The Movie, and now, marvel at a few of his more humorous stories, wittiest anecdotes, and other insights into what makes him tick.
At 83, Vidal Sassoon, the original celebrity hairstylist, is as active and sharp-witted as ever. His documentary, Vidal Sassoon the Movie, is currently out in limited release, and his autobiography (which he penned himself) is set to be available in the US in April. And after 65 years in the business, he's still "got it" with his slightly flirtatious personality and keen sense of humor, making it practically impossible not to be charmed by the handsome octogenarian. When referred to as "Mr. Sassoon" on a recent call, for instance, he immediately quipped, "Everyone calls me Vidal, because Mr. Sassoon [his father] is the banker."See what else Vidal had to say about the film, his inspirations, and more when you keep reading.
