Celebrated hair and fashion icon Vidal Sassoon has died at the age of 84.
The veteran stylist passed away at his Los Angeles home on Wednesday (09May12) following illness, reports the Los Angeles Times.

He became the subject of 2010 documentary Vidal Sassoon: The Movie, which chronicled his life and career.
