Vidal Sassoon: The Movie

Synopsis
The rags to riches story of Vidal Sassoon who, through tireless hard work and commitment, managed to modernise the old-fashioned world of hair. With modern architecture as his inspiration, he ushered in the social revolutions of the 60s. Salons, schools and products followed all over the world, and his tag line, "if you don’t look good we don’t look good" became a defining cultural touchstone. Featuring exclusive interviews with Mary Quant, Michael Gordon, and William Claxton as well as Sassoon and his family.
