Vidal Sassoon – Work Before Success
“The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
I’m sure many of us recognize the self titled hairstyling brand started by Vidal Sassoon, but how many have read of his humble beginnings? His father left their family when Sassoon was very young, leaving an impoverished wife with two children. Not being able to care for her children, she gave them to an orphanage where they lived for the next seven years. Through many trials and tribulations in his life, his passion for hairdressing along with a unique formulation of shampoo and conditioner led him on a journey to the top. He worked very hard for his success, the paradigm of the “self-made man” with an iconic company slogan of “if you don’t look good, we don’t look good”.
