Vidal Sassoon, R.I.P.

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.
