About the Movie

Vidal Sassoon is more than just a hairdresser - he's a rock star, an artist, a craftsman who "changed the world with a pair of scissors." With the geometric, Bauhaus-inspired hairdos he pioneered in the 1960s and his "wash and wear" philosophy that liberated generations of women from the tyranny of the salon, Sassoon revolutionized the art of hairstyling and left an indelible mark on popular culture. This documentary traces with visual gusto the life of a self-made man whose passion and perseverance took him from an orphanage in London to the absolute pinnacle of his craft.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Vidal Sassoon: The Movie isn't just the story of a brilliant fashion idea that swept the globe. It is a euphoric account of one man's strenuous self-invention. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Feb 11, 2011

Rotten: For a film about a master of minimalism, Vidal Sassoon the Movie trades in excess. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Apr 20, 2012

Fresh: Beyond the love fest of talking heads is a compelling life story that courses through the Depression, World War II and swinging London, all evoked in well-curated archival footage. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Feb 17, 2011

Rotten: Craig Teper's obsequious documentary on the stylist who popularized geometric haircuts in the '60s is in desperate need of shaping and trimming itself. – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Feb 8, 2011
