When there is such a person as a celebrity hairdresser without, apparently, any trace of irony.

Since he's dead, I guess there isn't any more (or at least one less).

Vidal Sassoon was pretty famous. At least he was famous for actually having a talent and doing something, which is a lot better than a seemingly growing number of celebrities.

And Part 95 - People who think they knew better and take issue with a celebrity hairdresser.

A bit of a slippery road?

BTW does anyone smell a game show? Germany's next celebrity toe nail clipper, anyone?


Would you need to get sets of toe-nail clippings for each foot? Sounds good to me!!!!!!!

I don't think so in this case. He was pretty important to the whole 'swinging sixties' thing.

If that comes in the 94th position of wrong things in the world, then the world is not half wrong as I thought.

You might want to check out the documentary about Vidal Sassoon - it's on Netflix, I think it's called "The Vidal Sassoon Movie" - because you don't seem to understand why Sassoon was a big deal. Sassoon was a celebrity hairdresser because when he opened his salon in the 50s, "natural" hairstyles were considered gauche or even improper - a civilized hairstyle for a proper lady involved a lot of hairspray, backcombing and curling. Sassoon's hairstyles - bold cuts using the way hair is naturally meant to hang - were a very key part of the Swinging Sixties and were a cultural force.

I mean, today the idea of a famous hairdresser is odd, because we take all of this stuff for granted because it's just there. But somebody had to invent these haircuts that helped change society, and Vidal Sassoon did that.

Oh, and he was also an Anti-Fascist soldier in Italy during World War II and then fought in the Hagenah in the late 40s. So there's that.
