Collaborators Stephen Ledbury and Lesley Mcintyre have between them notched up an impressive 40 years in the hairdressing industry. Renowned for their precision cutting skills and perfectionism, both have travelled the world, sharing their expertise and working on numerous prestigious magazine shoots and fashion shows, before joining forces in establishing this new salon.
Super friendly and relaxed salon. I have been seeing Lesley for cuts for 8 years now. We have experimented with different cuts pretty much every time. I always get compliments afterwards and asked who cuts my hair. She is a very instinctive and skilled hairdresser who always understands what the customer really wants and suits.

Can't recommend these guys highly enough. Lesley has been cutting my hair for many a year and is the only hairdresser I have ever had who can handle curly hair. I had my hair tied back for years, but Lesley set me free with consistently great cuts - I never tie it back now! All the staff in the salon are great and always make you feel really comfortable, welcome, and looked after. It really is a treat every time I visit. I won't go anywhere else and won't let anyone else cut my hair now that I've experienced the brilliant LedburyMcintyre.

Aya has been cutting my hair for a couple of years now, and when she moved to Ledbury recently, I naturally followed. It's a great salon. Best head massage ever and friendly, attentive staff. Aya is very experienced and has styled for the major fashion shows in London, Milan, Paris and NY, including working for Fashion Houses such as Chloe
I always leave Aya feeling wonderful - she is the only hairdresser I have ever had who really listens to what I want and her advice is always spot on. I have had loads of compliments about the cut from both men and women, and my husband liked my hair so much that he has switched to Aya too (with great results!). Having your hair cut can make such a difference to how you feel about yourself. When I leave Ledbury, having seen Aya, I always feel I've been pampered and groomed to perfection!

I have had Lesley cut my hair for over 20 years, since she came down from Scotland. She is totally amazing and has a fantastic eye for what suits. I will never ever let anyone else cut my hair. I get compliments all the time once I have had my hair done. It lasts ages and I always come out of the salon very happy with what has been done. I just love the atmosphere in the place - you don't feel rushed and they make you feel as if you are the most important person in the world.

Lesley has been cutting my hair for about 9 years. When I first met her my hair was long and black, now it is short and blonde. I often fancy a change and she always comes up with a cut that suits me. If you fancy a chat, she gives great advice; if you want to read Vogue and drink coffee, that's fine too. Vidal Sassoon ruined my hair when I agreed to model for them but Lesley sorted it right out and I won't be going to anyone else.

Lesley has been cutting my hair for over 20 years now and I will never let anyone else near it! I don't go as regularly as I should but she always treats me like an old friend. She knows exactly what I want and I have never left disappointed. Am so glad she is now running her own salon, as she deserves every success!

I first visited LedburyMcintyre the other week, and what a pleasant experience it was! The salon is a relaxed, friendly space - the perfect oasis after a fraught day at the office. The welcome was warm and the staff were lovely and chatty. I think I'm a pretty fussy customer, but Ayumi did an amazing job with my hair, a cute little bob cut that I couldn't fault. I left the salon with a grin on my face and I shall look forward to my next visit very much!

LedburyMcintyre was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm so pleased I went. I don't usually stick to the same salon, as I'm never usually completely pleased with the outcome, but I'll keep going back to this one because the results have been great. I have my hair cut by Ayumi who is really excellent. She listens to what you have to say and is also happy to make suggestions, and has given me the best hair cuts I have ever had. I have also had my highlights done by Ravi, and the tones came out really lovely, lifting the entire cut. I can't recommend having your highlights done by Ravi enough.

I've been having my hair cut by Stephen for over three years now and wouldn't dream of having anyone else cut it. Ever. He's utterly brilliant, a true craftsman, and a total perfectionist! He'd happily snip away for hours (if allowed!!) to achieve complete perfection. I also have Mikka dye my hair and again, I can't recommend him enough. He's effervescent, bubbly and really good fun to natter away to! And a superb colourist too.
I always walk out of Ledbury McIntyre feeling fabulous. Not only because my hair always looks so amazing (and I get comments on it for weeks afterwards which is a true test of a good haircut = it lasts ages) but because the whole team are lovely. Highly recommend a visit.
P.S : They give GREAT head massages too!

Went here yesterday on a recommendation and had my hair cut by Stephen. Just wanted to say how happy I am with it! Loved the relaxed atmosphere too. I will definitely be back. Thanks Ledbury McIntyre, after a long search I have found my new hairdresser!

I had my first visit to LedburyMcintyre, and it was such a lovely experience! All the staff were really friendly and very chatty. I had the pleasure of Ayumi cutting my hair, and I couldn't be happier. She really listened to what I wanted and gave me a haircut that I instantly loved! The whole salon has an amazing atmosphere and I couldn't recommend it or Ayumi more. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere or to anyone else from now on.

Kayo has recently joined Ledbury McIntyre and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She has been cutting my hair for about 13 or 14 years, and even though I live outside London and in spite the of hassle to get there, I still make the trip to town to see her - there is no other hairdresser like her. I trust her implicitly with my thick locks. She just knows how to cut hair! She is extremely personable, kind, and listens to what you want. I defy anyone to find a better cutter in London! Ledbury McIntyre are lucky to have her.

I've been seeing Ayumi ever since her days training at Ledbury McIntyre and I am nothing short of thrilled to have spent time with her in such a stunning space. The entire team are polite, friendly and welcoming, and I've never had a hairdresser give me a better cut than Ayumi. All those times a hairdresser hasn't fully got what I meant are now being rectified! Cannot recommend Ayumi OR the salon enough. I now reside up near Manchester but still make the trip for my cuts. It's THAT worth it, in my opinion.

I have been seeing Ravi for many years now (following her around like a faithful/annoying dog) and she is quite simply the only person I can trust with my styling, both cutting and colouring. The salon itself is lovely and welcoming, and Ravi will do a sterling job at making you look and feel like a million dollars. Top marks all round from me.
by hsthill, 15 Dec 2010
I have known Ravi for years and wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair. Just had my highlights done and I'm on to my second Brazilian blowdry - can't believe how easy my hair is now! Love the salon, and the dog is gorgeous too!
by kmcnulty, 13 Dec 2010
Superb service and extremely welcoming team - they all knew my name despite the fact it was my first visit. Ravi cut and coloured my hair. She is fantastic and completely understood what I wanted. I could not recommend this salon enough!
by Emi, 12 Dec 2010
Aside from Leslie and Stephen being the best hairdressers, the space is amazing, not intimidating, and the team are so welcoming. Definitely a hidden treasure, a nice get away from the hectic West End.
by bernice74, 04 Dec 2010
Lesley cuts my hair, Miko does the highlights and Ravi has just done a Brazilian blow dry. Honestly, I wouldn't go elsewhere for anything hair-related. The service is professional and friendly and it never feels like a production line like some well-known salon brands can feel. Superb, highly recommended.
by Amandas, 12 Nov 2010
Lesley really is a genius - once you've had a cut with her, you'll never want anyone else to touch your hair. Apart, that is, from Mika, the resident top colourist with an artist's eye for shade and tone. Both will make you look and feel fabulous in this cool, unpretentious salon.

I had my hair cut with Ayumi at Ledbury McIntyre. She cut my hair two weeks ago. I was really pleased with my cut so decided to go to her for colour too. I had my hair lightened at the ends - a cool, grown out, sunkissed look which I love. I'm so happy. I thoroughly recommend Ayumi and the salon. The salon is super stylish and service is amazing.
