Vidal Sassoon (1928-2012)
I sadly learnt that Vidal Sassoon passed away yesterday...I told my hubby last night and he had no idea that Vidal was a person, he thought it was a shampoo brand (...oh dear man!)...
One of the first 'celebrity' hairstylists,  Vidal was famous for changing the way woman had their hair cut, precision cutting, sleek styles, cropped styles....these styles were all the rage in the 60's along with the change in hemlines, strong eye-makeup, freedom of speech and a new direction for many woman...
Its said  he gave women the freedom to be more natural and at the time this was the case,  before that many  would set their hair in rollers and pin curls before bedtime to achieve their soft flipped look - others would tease their hair to high heavan to get the sexy bouffant , a look i still love!
So lets take a lesson from Vidal and learn to love and embrace what we have...ive been leaving my hair in its natural curly state lately - its still messy and gets frizzy but Im sick of frying my hair with a hot blowdrier and flat irons plus i save time by going 'wash and go' also growing my hair so I can get some weight in my curl and the past fortnight Ive been doing the 'No Poo' method so far so good!

  1. Ooooh, I didn't know he had passed away :( What a great trend setter he was .. well still is with all of us who follow his style + buy his products. No shampoo wash huh?. I tried the WEN products but just didn't work for me :( It just looked dirty the next day .... hmm, maybe I wasn't using it right hahaha! I don't think I have seen a pic of u on the blog. Maybe have a before and after pic - showing ur hair style.
