The Beatles - A Day in The Life: March 7, 1966

During this 3 month hiatus, 1966 would mark the last year that the Beatles would be tied to their classic "Mop-Top" image (although their hair was noticeably longer by this time) and all-together unified look. During this break, each member of the group coincidentally grew a moustache without consulting the others. Lennon began wearing his signature "granny" glasses during the filming of How I Won the War, cut his hair (he played the role of a soldier in that movie) and switched to wearing colourful paisley suits. They were never again filmed performing with a unified look, with the exception of a mocking scene in the promo for the 1967 song, Hello Goodbye.
