Vidal Sassoon: The Movie

Vidal Sassoon: The Movie is a quite fawning but nonetheless solidly engaging look at the iconic, same-named stylist, which benefits chiefly from its 83-year-old subject's articulate and extremely personable nature. The movie doesn't fully crack the nut of Sassoon's ambition or connect it to his fractured youth, but eventually makes a fairly convincing argument that his eschewing of convention and groundbreaking "five-point" cut, associated with the mod revolution of the 1960s, helped revolutionize hair care, freeing women from both the cost and commitment of weekly appointments.
