    British-born Vidal Sassoon died at his home on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles. He is credited with transforming women's haircutting and became famous for his wash-and-wear styles which included the bob, the Five-Point cut and the "Greek Goddess," a short, tousled perm. 

    Though Sassoon opened his first salon in London in in 1954, he said that he did not perfect his cut-is-everything approach until the mid-'60s. His shaped cuts are identified with the "Mary Quant" look - a swinging sixties silhouette made famous by the British fashion designer who popularized the miniskirt.
