Vidal Sassoon, the legendary London-born hairdresser who revolutionized hairstyling by creating the geometric bob, died Wednesday in Los Angeles of leukemia. He was 84.
Sassoon is best known for the sharp, asymmetric five-point haircut he introduced in 1963. At a time when Women’s Lib was in full swing, the wash-n-go haircut embraced by Mary Quant, Grace Coddington and Mia Farrow became a symbol of women’s rejection of restrictive beauty regimens.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
