Vidal Sassoon Dies at Age 84

The hair genius has passed away of natural causes in his LA home.

Vidal Sassoon died earlier this morning at age 84 of natural causes. The fashion icon liberated women from the beehives of the early 60s, popularising 'wash and wear' cuts that were stylish and low maintenance. He was also a brilliant businessman, establishing schools, salons and products worldwide.
