Leslie Cavendish

Description

Vidal Sassoon trained stylist and personal hairdresser to The Beatles, Leslie Cavendish was first introduced to Paul McCartney through his girlfriend Jane Asher, a regular client at the Sassoon salon in the Grosvenor House Hotel. After that first meeting in September 1966 and for the following four years, he became the personal hairdresser to all members of the band and ran their private ‘by appointment only’ Apple Hairdressing Salon, which was located in the basement of Apple Tailoring at 161 King’s Road, working with the band right up until they finally split and went their separate ways. He was summoned to cut their hair just before the Savile Row rooftop gig in 1969 and, after their demise, continued to cut Paul and Linda McCartney’s hair until 1975. He was also asked by Paul to join him and the rest of the Beatles to go on the Magical Mystery Tour in 1967.
