Vidal Sassoon, recently awarded a CBE for his services to the British hairdressing industry, has revealed that he is writing his autobiography. The legendary stylist is said to be writing the book himself and enjoying the experience! This is not the first book Sassoon has written, Cutting Hair the Vidal Sassoon Way is still widely available, however, there is more to Vidal Sassoon than hairdressing and writing alone. In 1982 he established the SICSA, a research centre devoted to the non-political, interdisciplinary gathering of information about anti-Semitism.
Sassoon was born to Jewish parents in London and spent six years in a Jewish orphanage in the city when their relationship broke down. Although too young to serve in the Second World War, Sassoon was a member of the 43 Group, a Jewish veterans’ militia organisation that broke up Fascist meetings in East London after the end of the war, he also fought in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War after joining the Israeli Defence Forces.
Release of the autobiography is anticipated to be next autumn. Would you buy it?
