I'was a fateful day when mama Sassoon hauled a very reluctant little football player into the world of women's beauty parolers to learn a trade. Now the king of cut ups recalls a very amusing life story... practice makes perfect and Sassoon found guinea pigs in the local flophouse. In the meantime he was street fighting against a wave of post-war fascism and eventually dropped out to join the Israeli Army. Dropping in again he decided to set up his own house where customers would be shown according to the management's mood. Opening day found a weeping Georgia Brown under the dryer. But now he has had almost every famous scalp, excluding Jackie Kennedy who chickened out. He gave Mia Farrow a famous $5,000 cut while reporters jostled and Mia Jamented the plight of the American Indian... he's responsible for those Carole Channing wigs... he's the darling of the fashion designers and it looks as though the geometric look is here to stay. It's just the kind of time passer to divert and soothe Madam while she's waiting.
