Leeds – a great city, with great hairdressers to boot.
During lockdown you may have trimmed your own fringe or chosen to dye your own hair, with varying degrees of success. But there’s no denying we missed our hairdressers – this letter to a hairdresser, for example, shows how important a trip to the salon can be. Even if you’re nifty with a pair of scissors, would you have been able to cut your own celebrity-inspired medium hairstyle to a professional standard? Welcome back, beloved hair salons – we’ve missed you.
There’s no shortage of excellent hairdressers in the vibrant city of Leeds. Look around the centre, where there are salons to suit a variety of needs. A bit further out, you’ll find local salons of a very high standard in lively Chapel Allerton, the well-connected suburb of Horsforth and in the surrounding pretty villages such as East Keswick.
