Famed hair stylist and fashion icon Vidal Sassoon died after a long illness, and the Los Angeles County coroner's office has plans for an autopsy.


Such a sad day, another legend has left us.

He was such an inspirational figure for so many artists.

Sadly, I've never gotten the opportunity to have met him before.



It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Vidal Sassoon CBE, who died this morning at his home in Los Angeles surrounded by loved ones. The 84 year old hairdresser was born in 1928 and sadly lost his battle with leukaemia today. He became the most celebrated hairdresser in the world having begun his career as an apprentice during the Second World war going on to revolutionise the industry through his iconic haircuts, salons, schools and product lines. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 20 years Ronnie, his children, grandchildren, family and friends. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorial donations be sent to American Friends of The Hebrew University in support of The Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism- 11500 W. Olympic Boulevard, Suite 512 LA CA 90064 or www.afhu.org

Holy hell....I didn't know you could get cancer of the blood!? Is there anything that disease can't do?

Man, only 50 years old too. That is young now that I am 41.

wash and gone

who cares? I mean, sure, for his relatives this must be painful as is every death of a loved one. Mr Sassoon had a nice life, probably. I sympathize with his relatives, sincerely. All lives come to an end.

but then again, I care more for the children who died today because they have no access to good water.

(no personal attack intended, really)

People are heartless in ATS.

Sign of the times.

Not that you have to feel bad.

Just don't say anything if you don't have anything good to say.

Didn't your mothers teach you that?

Damn.

"Just don't say anything" doesn't sound like a good strategy.
I was thinking I brought in some "heart", some "respect"
on the other hand, can't you expect people at ATS to be critical?

As others here mentioned already (I included it as well):
why should this death be worth mentioning more than the death of children who did die that some day?
why should we celebrate some person who entertained celebs?

Mind you, I had the same feeling when Jobs died and the world felt the need to try to turn him into a saint.
Contrary to you a lot of readers enjoyed my critical essays I published in some leading newspaper (in Dutch. Too bad, otherwise I would share)

Why would we respect a culture that tends to turn captains of industry into heroes?

My mother not only learned me to be respectful, she also showed me how to be critical
