Hairstyling mogul Vidal Sassoon died today of natural causes. Sassoon had apparently been battling leukemia for some time. He was 84.
Although Sassoon is synonymous with womens' hairstyling when I think of Sassoon I think of his role in Israel's War of Independence in 1948-49. Who says hairdressers aren't tough?
In 1982, he would later establish the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism.
