There is no stopping Michael Gordon, founder of Bumble and bumble, who wrote and co-produced Vidal Sassoon The Movie, in his quest to give beauty industry players the kudos he believes they deserve. “Watch any reality show, and the people who are hairdressers look like idiots. It’s a career that people still tend to look down on,” says Gordon.

One of the reasons he wanted to make the film (released in February) was to educate hairdressers—who are often unaware of the history of their industry, he says—about one of its greats. It was his first major project after selling Bumble and bumble to the Estée Lauder Cos. in 2000 and exiting the business six years later. “Vidal was the one person out there who has had the most impact on hairdressing. He changed the entire industry. You cannot be a hairdresser today and be separated from Vidal and his work,” says Gordon.
