GOING, GOING, GONE: While Procter & Gamble nixed the Vidal Sassoon hair care line from consumer consumption in the fourth quarter of last year, Vidal Sassoon afficionados could still buy their favorite product from one of 25 Vidal Sassoon salons internationally. Not anymore. Beginning in June, Wella branded products will replace all Vidal Sassoon hair care products in salons, according to Annie Humphreys, international director for color and technical research for Vidal Sassoon. Humphreys added that the move should be an easy one since Vidal Sassoon salons already stock the German hair care company’s color products. The move marks the end of a 30-year product legacy.
