Twitter users have been mourning the death of London’s well-known hairdresser, Lyndell Mansfield, for the past two days.
Lyndell was an Australian born stylist residing in the UK for the past 23 years. She was renowned for her work in the fashion and music industry, having contributed to a string of high profile projects.
What happened to Lyndell Mansfield?
According to a GoFundMe page set up by Lyndell’s friend Donna Sullivan, the hairstylist was on life support in a London hospital for the past few days. She suffered a brain haemorrhage, which was followed by three cardiac arrests whilst receiving care.
The GoFundMe was set up by Donna to help Lyndell’s parents, Vivienne and Barry, to fly to London from Australia and be by her side during the difficult time.
Donna, the organiser of the page, posted an update yesterday, October 1, informing that Lyndell had passed away and parents could not make it in time. Her parents had instead set up a Skype video call to say their last words to Lyndell.
Tom, Lyndell’s partner of many years, was by her side in her last days.
Lyndell’s GoFundMe page has raised a total of $114,830 at the time of writing, with the top donation of $10,000 being made by an anonymous donor.
