Here at Decades, we are deeply saddened at the loss of one of fashion's brightest stars, Vidal Sassoon. Throughout his career, Sassoon was always at the forefront of fashion, creating several seminal sartorial aesthetics. It goes without saying that his influence reached far beyond mere hairstyles.

Of course, true beauty is evidenced both inside and out. Perhaps it's because Sassoon was a true gentleman, the epitomé of grace, style, generosity and kindness, that propelled him to become one of fashions greatest innovators.

Cameron Silver, our co-owner along with Christos Garkinos, says of Sassoon, "I have had the pleasure of knowing Vidal Sassoon since 1997 when Decades opened and he attended our opening fete with his wonderful wife Ronnie.  He has always represented to me the power of hard work over adversity to achieve incredible things. He not only revolutionized hair, but was an example of being a responsible citizen of the world through his philanthropy. Vidal was a man of true elegance and taste and I am do honored to have known him. Vidal and Ronnie were early supporters of Decades and my thoughts and prayers are with Ronnie and the Sassoon family. He made the world a better place and will always be an inspiration."
Rest in peace, Vidal Sassoon. You are truly and dearly missed.
