Not long to go now girls until the Vidal Sassoon movie is unveiled! This week it was announced that the world premiere of Vidal Sassoon The Movie will take place at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, which means it should be over here in the UK pretty soon too. The feature documentary is a portrait of the hairdressing luminary, made by Bumble and Bumble founder Michael Gordon and Craig Teper. It follows Michael's journey as he works research a book about Vidal's life, and shows how Vidal transformed our attitudes to hairdressing and became a cultural icon.
For those less familiar with Vidal's genius – he was the man behind the iconic 'Wash and Go' catchphrase, championing easy haircare for women. He also created the geometric bob. The documentary explores all of this, from Vidal's early orphanage beginning, his life as an Israeli soldier, right through to global fame.
The Tribeca Film Festival screening will air on April 23, and Sassoon is set to attend, with a Q&A session afterwards. It could be time to book a flight...
