EastEnders star Louisa Lytton retrained as a barber while acting work was sparse, adding another string to her bow.

The Walford actress, best known for playing Ruby Allen, is now a certified barber.

The actress had turned to men’s hairdressing during a dry spell in her career, achieving the diploma in foundation barbering in November 2014 and showing off her diploma to her followers.

Louisa said: ‘Let’s talk about when I’m out of work and I decide I want to do other things like barbering.

‘I don’t think I’ve cut anyone’s hair since my dad’s in 2014 when I passed.’

Now that stars on the show have to do their own make-up and prep, perhaps she can help out anyone she has bubbled with.

Pregnant Louisa is currently at the centre of a storyline which has seen Ruby lose several babies in heartbreaking scenes.

She will finish filming soon as she goes on maternity leave but her exit storyline has yet to be revealed.

The star was going through her old possessions when she found the barbering certificate – and also shared some of her other memories with followers.

She giggled as she revealed embarrassing throwback photos from the 00s, which saw her sporting a bold tan.

Louisa also unearthed a copy of FHM from 2009, which included a sexy photoshoot of his future wife.

Since Ruby has been central storylines including a rape ordeal and a huge clash with Stacey Fowler.
