It was a fair coiff for celebrity hairstylist Kim Robinson last week. Despite walking free from the District Court following allegations of allowing his Filipino maid to work illegally in his salon, his best-kept secret was well and truly out of the bag.

Apparently, Robinson was very upset at the prospect of going to court. But it wasn't the prospect of standing before a judge; he wasn't worried about the publicity. It wasn't even the daunting possibility of a jail sentence.

No, the hairdresser to the stars was troubled that at last his age would become public knowledge.

For anyone who missed the vital statistic, he's a big 38.

Backbites will however be organising a whip-round for the coiffeur's 39th birthday.

A good haircut is in order, it has been decided.
