Hairdresser Lyndell Mansfield is dead.
The Australian-born stylist was renowned for her work in fashion and music, working on a series of high-profile projects.
An important and lively voice in multiple disciplines, she was a true force of nature whose pure energy seemed to support anyone in her presence.
The stylist worked on our Beth Ditto cover — among many other Clash projects over the years — and made a lasting impression with those on set.
Sadly, Lyndsell Mansfield passed away earlier today, with Dazed confirming the news of her passing.
