Goodbye Vidal Sasson

One of the best scenes in the legendary film Rosemary's Baby occurs when the pregnant Rosemary surprises her not so thrilled husband with her new haircut. She meekly and in the cutest, almost British sounding voice (she is American, mind you) declares "It's Vidal Sasson". Sasson, who died today at the age of 84, did not invent the pixie cut, but he did make it iconic for women around the world for over the last fifty years. So thank you, Mr. Sasson and hopefully one day I will have the balls to actually get that pixie cut that we all love and admire.
