Leslie CavendishAverage Vendor Rating
I was born in the East London of London and grew up in a large Jewish family in Burnt Oak, North London. I was apprenticed to Vidal Sassoon in 1962, becoming a stylist three years later. Soon after I became Paul McCartney’s private hairdresser in 1966, and began to work on the image of John/George and Ringo, at their Apple offices .I was invited to watch them record at the studios, also being invited along as a friend and participant on the Magical Mystery Tour. In 1967, I opened my own salon, backed by Apple and the Beatles, at 161 King’s Road, Chelsea.

- Leslie Cavendish wasn't just the Beatles' hairdresser, he was one of the few Londoners/Cockneys at the core of the Apple empire. How many people can say they had a seat on the Magical Mystery Tour bus, were inside the Apple building while the Fab Four played on the roof, and drove Paul McCartney across London in a Mini Cooper?
