Raymond Bessone

Raymond Bessone, aka ‘Mr Teazie Weazie’ was the celebrity hairdresser in the 1950’s and 1970’s. Except for girls under 20, Bessone considered that women should avoid having long hair because he considered it ageing. He was also of the opinion that, except for women with very regular features, a central parting should be avoided. The modern (1960’s) bouffant is considered to be a Bessone
invention.He also innovated by dyeing hair with bold colours; pink, orange and purple. And he was the one who trained Vidal Sassoon.
