Vidal Sassoon : : Neutra's Singleton House






 



This weekend I was able to watch Vidal Sassoon the Movie and really enjoyed it.  The movie explores the life and legacy of the most influential hairdresser in the world, whose influence far outreaches the industry he changed forever.  
 
“My whole work, beginning in the late 1950s, came from the Bauhaus,” Sassoon explains in Architectural Digest. “It was all about studying the bone structure of the face, to bring out the character. Architects have always been my heroes,” he adds.
 
After hearing how architecture influenced his work as a hairdresser it seems only natural that he would of course live in an architectural gem of a home (one of my favorites). In the movie there are glimpses of the famous 1959 Richard Neutra's Singleton House that he and his wife renovated after purchasing it in 2004.  Last year Architectural Digest featured the Bel Air home in its April issue with the pictures shown above.

God, I can smell the Almond scented Shampoo and Conditioner that I used in the 80s so clearly right now.
