Vidal Sassoon Doc Shows The Man Behind The Famous Hairdos

The Tribeca Film Festival comes to an end this weekend, and among the scores of movies shown during the 12-day film fest, I’m looking forward to the hair documentary “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie.” You might know the name Vidal Sassoon from the haircare commercials with the tagline, “If You Don’t Look Good, We Don’t Look Good,” but the story begins way before the celebrity hairstylist had a line of products.

Vidal grew up in a Jewish orphanage in London, served in the Israeli army, and became one of the first stars of the hair world in the ’60s, developing a new geometric technique for cutting hair (the “five-point”) and making news when he cut Mia Farrow’s hair for “Rosemary’s Baby.” I love how documentaries give an insider-y view of aspects of glamorous industries we don’t normally see (i.e., “The September Issue“) so I’ve already added “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie” to my Netflix queue.
