Co-Owner of John Paul Mitchell Systems, Angus Mitchell, Reacts to the Death of Hair Icon Vidal Sassoon(May 09, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- In reaction to the death of the "founder of hairdressing" Vidal Sassoon, Angus Mitchell -- the Co-owner and Artistic Director of Education at John Paul Mitchell Systems & owner of the Angus Mitchell Salon ~ Beverly Hills -- says, "Vidal was a lifelong inspiration, mentor and friend. Vidal was not only instrumental in revolutionizing and commercializing hair in the West but he kept hair as an art form intact. I am proud to say that Vidal watched and coached my father and myself in mastering the art of hair with grace, generosity and a touch of genius. The world has lost a great man and visionary."
Angus is also the son of the late legendary hair fashion icon Paul Mitchell who joined Vidal Sassoon in the late '60s. Paul Mitchell and business partner John Paul DeJoria founded John Paul Mitchell Systems in 1980 to market professional hair care products through salons.
A renowned stylist himself, Angus's distinctive and signature style as an artist was hatched from his early technical education at Vidal Sassoon, combined with the free creative expression at Paul Mitchell. Angus has parlayed his unique skill to the global community and currently travels the world for hair events on behalf of Paul Mitchell.
