Vidal Sassoon

In the late ’50s and early ’60s, the British hairstylist’s angular cuts simplified life for millions of women accustomed to visiting the salon every week. The wash-and-wear style reached its cultural apogee when Roman Polanski paid Sassoon $5,000 to give Mia Farrow a pixie cut for “Rosemary’s Baby.” Here, artist Winnie Truong recalls some of his most famous looks from the manual “Cutting Hair the Vidal Sassoon Way.”


Winnie Truong is an artist who lives and works in Toronto. She has had shows in New York at Mulherin Pollard Projects and was featured at VOLTA NY.
