"Revisiting a conversation with Vidal Sassoon" : Vidal Sassoon Dead at 84. A true pioneering genius.

NPM:  She was the one who had the “premonition” that you should become a hairdresser.

VS:  I said, “A hairdresser?  What will my friends think?”  Because in those days, that profession had no status at all.  But you never said “no” to my mother – if you did, you’d get a very good talking to.  And she was very convincing:  “learn a craft, learn a trade.”  And she took me down to Adolf Cohen’s [salon, for an appreticeship] at 101 White Chapel Road.
