Astrid Kirchherr

Astrid Kirchherr (b. 1938) is a photographer and artist. She invented The Beatles haircut during their early time in Hamburg: she met them at a club when she was dating Klaus Voormann (who later designed some of The Beatles' album covers), left him for Stuart Sutcliffe, and cut his hair in the familiar mop-top, which John Lennon initially found laughable but eventually adopted, like the others.
