Woman obtains superinjunction against photos of her with a fringe

A WOMAN has obtained a court-ordered superinjunction to prevent the publication of any photos that show her with a fringe.

Nikki Hollis, who had the offending style for a two-year period between 2014 and 2016, is desperate to ensure that any trace of her old hairstyle is wiped from the web, social media, and local and national press.

She said: “It’s cost me £110,000 in legal fees, but well worth it.

“I was aiming for Zooey Deschanel but ended up looking like the kid from The Shining. Nonetheless, unable to accept failure, I kept it for two f**king years.

“I’ve tried de-tagging myself. I’ve tried asking people to delete their pictures. But I came to realise that nothing would get done unless I threatened harsh legal consequences.”

The order means Hollis’s friends and family are required to destroy any evidence of the fringe and must never mention it again under threat of imprisonment.

She added: “I recently had to send a cease and desist letter to my own grandmother, who had a photo of me at her 70th birthday in 2013 on her mantelpiece. She was upset, but the law’s the law.”
