From Bradford UNESCO City of Film, we write about photography, film and television, and daily life in a national museum.
The man who revolutionised the world of hairstyling with his geometric ‘wash and wear’ cuts, has died at the age of 84. Vidal Sassoon was the most famous hairdresser of the 1960s, so there’s no question that we’d have photographs of the man and his modern, low maintenance styles in the Daily Herald archive, held here in our Collections and Research Centre.
It just so happens that Caroline from our Collections team had put together a file of photographs for a group of design students a few months back, which included these little beauties of Vidal Sassoon. She pulled the file, and our Photographer, Paul, digitised a selection so we could share them with you.
