Vidal, dahling...

As some of you may know, I work at a book store. Book Soup in West Hollywood, to be exact, and yesterday night we had the honor of hosting Vidal Sassoon, who has come out with his autobiography. He wrote it himself, no ghost! He is the most charming octogenarian gentleman and I had the pleasure of hosting this event. He talked about cutting Mia Farrow's hair for Rosemary's Baby, talked about parties with Mary Quant, and he even has a Winston Churchill cocktail party tidbit. He's a dynamic man and was kind enough to invite me to be a guest at a salon of his in L.A. As you can tell from these pictures, I'm in dire need of a haircut! I'm really interested in documenting this hair cut adventure with you all. I won't go too crazy, unfortunately, and get any sort of iconic Sassoon bob or anything like that! I just want long, even, wavy, witch hair, sans bangs.

Here were my previous forays in the land of short, wavy, brown, and banged..


  1. omg you are so lucky!! your hair cute looks amazing!! i hope you had a wonderful time at his salon, i would have died!!! awesome!! ahhh <3

  2. I haven't gone yet, dear! These are old pictures of my old short hair, but I can tell how the layout of the post made it confusing! But, yeah, he is really amazing. I kind of can't believe I was hugging a LEGEND! :)

  3. Generally hairdressers rule.

  4. That is so amazing!

    "Oh, you know, I was just hanging out with Mary Quant back in the day." Shut up, Vidal. You are blowing my mind.
