Mary Quant and Vidal Sassoon, 1964: A Look Back

"A Look Back" is a daily column that highlights a moment from fashion's fabulous past. Today's pick is a photo of designer Mary Quant getting a cut from hairdresser Vidal Sassoon on November 13, 1964. Quant, a shining star of 1960s British Fashion, was known for her angular bob and creating the mini skirt. Sassoon first cut Quant's hair into the short, geometric crop in 1963 and it became one of his most popular styles. Maybe it is a style we should bring back?
