Remembering Vidal Sassoon

Hosted by

Vidal Sassoon

The legendary hairdresser Vidal Sassoon recalled that in the 1950s, you'd place a hat on women’s hair and “dress their hair around it.” Last Wednesday, Vidal Sassoon died, at the age of 84, leaving a huge cultural legacy. KCRW's own art critic, Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, was a great friend of his and remembers his remarkable contribution.
