Designer chops off trademark hair to support climate change

Dame Vivienne Westwood has done the unthinkable – cut off all of her trademark red hair.

The designer reportedly wanted to draw attention to climate change, a spokesperson said: “Vivienne cut her hair as we must all wake up to climate change … and secondly she wanted to cut the red out for a while and have it white – to show she’s proud of her age.”

The 72 year-old British designer hasn’t changed her hair colour for decades so there is no doubt this cause is close to her heart.

It has also been reported that Westwood will be pausing her business for a time in order to help promote the protection of the Arctic with Greenpeace.
