Hair today...gone tomorrow

For us yesterday was just another cold day at the office, but for actress Isabella Calthorpe, it was a very big day as she faced the hairdressers scissors to get her hair cropped short - for the very first time. All this in preparation for her big role as Astrid Kirchherr in Backbeat, which opens at the Citz on 9 Feb.

Isabella who is recognisable in glamourous London circles for her gorgeous long blonde hair, was fortunate enough to have the whole affair managed by top Vidal Sassoon, Creative Director, Mark Hayes. Boyfriend Sam Branson (son of Richard) has by all accounts lent his support to the dramatic cut.

Seriously boys...these things can be traumatic for us.

Well done lady, we think it's great!

This famous self-portrait of Astrid shows the likeness Isabella has achieved.
