    He dropped out of high school.

    He was Farrow's hair stylist who was paid $5,000 to chop off most of her hair for her role in 'Rosemary's Baby (1968).'
    The gay tag line for his hair care product commercials was 'Ooh, La, La, Sassoon!'

    He fought for the Israeli army as a volunteer during its battle for independence, causing many Arab people to boycott his products.

    He believes 'violence for its own sake is nonsense, but in defence of one's children and one's elders is a necessity.'
