In 1985 Vidal Sassoon And Andy Warhol Sold Hair Products To The Bald

In 1985 readers of Rolling Stone and other magazines were let in on a secret: they too could get hair like Bill Wadhams, lead singer of Animotion, Jeff Baker, a cop in North Carolina, Tony Roberts – you may know him as Rob in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall – Olympic gymnast Mitch Gaylord, hairdresser and secret sharer Vidal Sassoon, actor Geoffrey Holder – he played Baron Samedi in Live And Let Die – and…Andy Warhol.

That’s Andy Warhol –  the artist in a wig.
