Friday, October 12, marks a very important day for the professional beauty industry as we celebrate, honor and remember the life of Vidal Sassoon in London's St. Paul's Cathedral.

MODERN SALON made the journey across the ocean to pay our respects and to remember the man "who changed the world with a pair of scissors."

We recognize that not everyone will be able to attend the services---we encourage you to spend some time flipping through this tribute so you, too, can remember.
