Yesterday, we wrote about how Vidal Sassoon changed the world through a pair of scissors and acknowledged how Coco Chanel has done the same with how the way women dress today. And today, Chanel has launched a brilliant video, “For the First Time”, showing the story of their legendary scent, N°5, for the first time online. This is an absolutely gorgeous and classy video, just like Coco Chanel.
“How one man changed the world with a pair of scissors.” This man is Vidal Sassoon, the legendary hairdresser, who you probably know through the hair products sold at your local pharmacy. We just recently watched the Vidal Sassoon documentary, although released in 2009, and it is simply inspirational! The movie shows Vidal’s life journey from his childhood days living in an orphanage to his service as an Israeli soldier and finally shows his amazing career as a hairdresser. Just as we have admired Coco Chanel for how she revolutionized the way women dress, Vidal’s vision did that for the hair industry and made it into a craft. And what we love most is that he shared – he shared his knowledge and educated others.
