The Rag

Hairdressing

Lord Melvyn Bragg and Ian Stewart Barber and hairdresser, Ian Stewart at the Army and Navy Club

MEET THE CLUB BARBER

 

Meet Ian Stewart, The Rag’s hairdresser whose client list reads like a bumper international edition of ‘Who’s Who?’. His distinguished clientele includes TV newscasters, actors Richard Dreyfuss and Jeff Goldblum, celebrated playwright Tom Stoppard, music maestro Andre Previn (former Director of Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra), theatrical producer Michael Codron CBE, former Fleet Street editors Donald Trelford and Brian Macarthur and the late Leonard Bernstein.  

He recalls his years in the Seventies at London’s trendy salon, ‘Glints’, where regulars included famous musicians like pianist Russ Conway, TV personality Russell Harty, and Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills and Nash. Moving on, Ian started at The Savoy in 1977, where he established a fine reputation as a gents’ hairdresser over the years. Ian’s most supportive, long-standing client is Lord Bragg, who has been a loyal and devoted friend of Ian for more than a decade. “I have been tackling Lord Bragg’s luxuriant locks for the past eleven years”, confides Ian. “During that time he and I have had to put up with what critics incorrectly call his bouffant hairstyle. Frankly, we’re bemused by all the comments but we accept them – and I put all the ribbing down to jealousy”.

Half an hour in the chair under the golden scissors of Ian Stewart produces a world-class hair-cut – it also often yields more celebrity gossip than an entire edition of Hello! Magazine and all Fleet Street’s diary columns put together. 

Find Ian’s salon on the ground floor of the Club, within the Gentlemen’s restroom.
