Remember Mia Farrow's controversial haircut for Rosemary's Baby? How could you forget that sweet but sexy pixie cut? What about the ever-popular bob? And who do we have to thank for these beautiful hairstyles? None other than British hairstylist Vidal Sassoon. It has been 50 years since Vidal Sassoon began transforming women's hair, and his eponymous line is still at it. Launching this month, the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series is carrying on Sassoon's vision. The brand sponsored Martin Lim's show at Montreal Fashion Week this February, where we had the chance to check out all of the series' new products – as well as to get a first look at some of the hottest new fashions. The looks at Lim's show referenced the 1960s, making the show the perfect fit for this revamped hair-care launch.

The Vidal Sassoon Pro Series collections include something for everyone. There are colour, volume, moisture, repair and smoothing collections, as well as a styling and finishing line. There is also a new permanent colour kit – and the colours are fabulous (plus, they promise 100 per cent grey coverage and come with a conditioner to stop your shade from fading).
Here are a few more looks from the Martin Lim show. The inspiration was all about glamour. Deep side parts with tumbling waves or flipped up ends gave off that Hollywood look of days past, which was sort of the theme of Vidal Sassoon's launch: everything old is new again.

We loved the mix of soft colours with bright pops of cobalt and raspberry.
