Famed hair stylist and fashion icon Vidal Sassoon died after a long illness, and the Los Angeles County coroner’s office has plans for an autopsy.
Law enforcement sources did not disclose the nature of the illness, but numerous media organizations have been reporting for some time that Sassoon, 84, was battling leukemia. The sources said he died at his Mulholland Drive estate and that his doctors will make final death notifications.
Sassoon, hugely influential in the hair care and fashion worlds, was the subject of a 2010 documentary, “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie.”
According to a Times profile in 1999, Sassoon went to work at age 14. As a “shampoo boy,” he was responsible for mixing dyes: bleach powder, peroxide and ammonia.
“The ammonia jar was kept locked up because if you spilled it, it would clean out the sinuses of the block, not just the salon,” he explained.
In 1954, he opened his first salon in London. “I gave myself five years. If I couldn’t change anything, I was out of there.”
“When I first came into hair, women were coming in and you’d place a hat on their hair and you’d dress their hair around it,” Sassoon said. “We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in.”
He eventually opened a New York salon. In 1973, his hair-care products debuted to the trade. A couple of years later, he moved to Los Angeles, and by 1980, he even briefly had his own American television talk show. It was quite a life for a poor boy from London’s East End.
Sassoon was married four times. He met his current wife of seven years, Ronnie, when she was running a graphics design firm in Cincinnati 10 years ago. Procter & Gamble was one of her clients.
According to the Biography Channel, Sassoon was diagnosed with leukemia in 2009.

If you want to talk about a true unique Lady, true to the word, taking the red carpet by storm. Then one should check out the one and only Lady Victoria Hervey- Not only is she royalty, she is also a Red Carpet mistress that happens to be everywhere. A lady with her own fashion devices, her own fashion happenings.. Lady Victoria does her own thing when it comes to Red Carpet styling. And guess what, It works. The 2012 Oscar season proved my point. She opted to steer clear of the normal Red Carpet designer’s Lhuillier, Versace Couture, Armani Prive, Valentino and Zac Posen to name a few .. She went with 2 gowns that stunned and were both unique in their own right.
The first gown was by the insanely gorgeous BASIL SODA, if you are not aware of Basil Soda and his French Haute Couture designs- I would definitely check this line out, Its one of the hottest Tickets in town for Paris fashion week, and was worn to The Weinstein Company Pre Oscar Party at the insanely Exclusive Soho House- West Hollywood.

The Second gown which was worn to the infamously hard to get into Elton Johns Aids Benefit Oscar 2012 viewing party, was designed by another obscure choice, Irina Shabayeva, If you are not aware of Irina- check out Project Runways 6th season- this dress was a metallic Stunner!
