"Vidal Sassoon the Movie" is the revealing and inspirational story of how one man changed the world with a pair of scissors. The film traces Sassoon's path from a London orphanage to international success and celebrity. Living through war and poverty, the seeds of his future are spawned as young Vidal becomes driven to rise above the circumstances of his birth.Through tireless hard work and commitment, he struggles to modernize the old-fashioned world of hair; with modern architecture as his inspiration, Sassoon focuses on geometric shapes and angles -- literally changing the way women look and ushering in the social revolutions of the '60s.
