Mia Farrow - Stars Pay Tribute To Vidal Sassoon

Actress Mia Farrow and singer Estelle are among the celebrities who have offered tributes to legendary hair icon Vidal Sassoon, who died on Wednesday (09May12).
The veteran stylist was believed to have been battling leukaemia when he passed away at his Los Angeles home at the age of 84.
Sassoon has long been credited with coming up with Farrow's famous pixie crop in Rosemary's Baby, but the star admits she had been trimming her hair herself years before making the 1968 horror classic.
In posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "(I) met him when he trimmed my hair during filming of Rosemary's Baby (but) I cut my own hair short... even before I married Frank Sinatra.
"Vidal Sassoon trimmed my inch long hair as publicity prank 4 RosemrysBaby (Rosemary's Baby and) he was nice. Rip."
Spandau Ballet rocker Martin Kemp adds, "Rip Vidal Sassoon... A wonderful man I had the pleasure to dine with once... Hats off to you sir!" while teen star Miley Cyrus writes, "Rip Vidal Sassoon. You are forever fabulous."
Estelle tweets, "Vidal Sassoon was an icon in hair and in freedom. Choosing to follow your destiny instead of the path chosen for you by man."
