The Cutting Edge by Leslie Cavendish

Review published on September 12, 2017.

What a fantastic read! Starting in London, in 1961, this wonderful book, lets us into the life of a celeb hairdresser. The stories Leslie has to tell had me laughing out loud. Leslie was a junior to Vidal Sassoon, who did not suffer fools gladly. Having to keep his eyes on the job he was meant to do, and not on the ladies, was not an easy thing. Leslie soon became a favourite, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, but it was working with The Beatles that really shot him into the limelight, and even after leaving hairdressing Leslie kept on speaking terms and maintained a good friendship with Paul McCartney. This is one of those books that everyone should read, and tell their friends to buy, and one to re-read, just to re-live those nostalgic days of the 60s.

Angie Rhodes 5/5
