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.
