Barry McCall’s fashionable coffee table book, Pho20graphy, benefiting The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC), has been underway for some months and Mr. Byrne sat still long enough to be captured for it.

WITH a huge list of famous clients, top hair stylist Dylan Bradshaw rarely gets star-struck.

But the celebrity coiffeur was bowled over after a meeting with Hollywood actor Gabriel Byrne this week.

The grooming expert told the Diary he was called in to look after the Usual Suspects star’s locks ahead of his photoshoot for the upcoming charity book by fashion photographer Barry McCall.

“He was without a shadow of a doubt one of the nicest people I have ever met. He was just so giving and so humble. It was a real pleasure to meet him,” Dylan said.

“I was a big fan of his before but I’m even more of a fan now after getting to meet him and just see how normal and nice he is.”

The stylist also joked there was no fear of Byrne losing his luscious locks.

“He has a really fine head of hair,” he said.

Barry McCall’s new website will give you an idea of what he might be doing in this book. He has been a fashion photographer and portraitist for 20 years now and the book sounds like a “taking stock” affair, involving tons of very interesting people with very nice faces. Start saving those pennies now for this one-of-a-kind gift (even if the giftee turns out to be yourself!) and read more about the work of the ISPCC, an organization which “exists to advocate on behalf of all children in Ireland.”
