Vidal Sassoon Dead At 84

9 May 2012 2:56 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Celebrated hair and fashion icon Vidal Sassoon has died at the age of 84.

The veteran stylist passed away at his Los Angeles home on Wednesday following an unspecified illness.

He had reportedly been diagnosed with leukaemia in 2009, although it is not known if the condition played a part in his death.

Born in London, Sassoon became a style pioneer in the 1960s for creating a simple and sleek geometric haircut, which became known as the 'bob'.

He was also famous for chopping off actress Mia Farrow's long locks for her role in Roman Polanski's horror film Rosemary's Baby.

Sassoon opened hair salons around the world and sold his name to pharmaceutical firm Procter & Gamble to release a line of hair products.

He became the subject of 2010 documentary Vidal Sassoon: The Movie, which chronicled his life and career.

Model Erin O'Connor was one of the first stars to pay tribute to Sassoon on Twitter.com, writing, "Rip Vidal Sassoon. Inspired so many, myself included." »

Vidal Sassoon, Famed Stylist, Dies at 84

9 May 2012 12:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Vidal Sassoon, the famed British hairstylist, has been found dead at his Bel-Air home of apparent natural causes. He was 84. He admitted last year that he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2009 but had kept the news private. He was treated for the disease in Beverly Hills and the Cromwell Hospital in London.  A documentary on Sassoon, Vidal Sassoon: The Movie, was released in 2011. The film prompted him to go on a speaking tour, which included meeting with hundreds of fans in movie theaters in New York and Los Angeles. It documented his rise in the London of the 1960s, inventing the famed "wedge" haircut and bringing architecture to hair for the first time. He had a close friendship with fashion designer Mary Quant, and they often worked in tandem. Later on, he became one of the first hairdressers with his name on a major product line, and there are now Vidal Sassoon salons all over the world. The Vidal Sassoon hair products empire is worth about $150 million. »
