Status Quo - Rick Parfitt Lost Hair On Fiji Movie Shoot

Subscribe to Status Quo alerts

Status Quo star Rick Parfitt decided to cut his trademark long hair earlier this year (12) after it began falling out when the band worked on a new movie.

The rockers make their film debut in action adventure Bula Quo!, and headed to Fiji to shoot their scenes.

However, the trip proved a disaster for Parfitt - his wavy blonde hair started to fall out and he made the decision to chop his locks into a shorter style.

He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I've always had great hair. It's always been thick and long, and I've never had a problem with it. I never even conditioned it, you know - it made it too smooth. But earlier this year we were filming our movie in Fiji, and it started coming out by the comb-load.

"I was putting it down the loo, flushing it, combing it again and even more was coming out. I started the movie with a full head of hair and by the time I'd finished a month later, it was just strands.

"It looked awful. It was so thin. So I came back and immediately had it cut short. People said, 'Don't do it! Leave the hair, what is the matter with you?' But it had to go."
