Barbara Bain with Michael Rasser

Born 1938, Michael Rasser was an English hairdresser from the 1960s to the 2000s whose celebrity clients from Mick Jagger and Liza Minelli to Cherie Blair and Anna Wintour. He started his career at the famous Leonard salon in 1954, and worked for Revlon in New York. In 1967 he and John Isaacs founded their own salon, Michaeljohn, in Mayfair, London. His regular clients included Princess Anne, including her wedding in 1973. He received the Royal Victorian Medal in the 2002 New Years Honours for services to hairdressing. He retired in 2007 and died in 2011.

"This is the first time I have been asked to look into the future and, frankly, I wouldn't like to predict what styles will be popular next week, next month or next year, let alone a quarter of a century hence!" He therefore created what he describes as "The Timeless Look". "It is basically classical," he explains. "The colouring is very much Barbara Bain's own, but I have taken the silver of the moon to symbolize the setting by introducing blonde highlights which give a subtle lift for the hair. She is lucky. Her hair is fantastically lovely. It is thick, strong hair which falls beautifully ... a pleasure for any hairdresser to work on."
