"Step 4," was a cute spiked hair cut for the Beverly Hills 90210 star. Doherty's husband, photographer Kurt Iswarienko, was out of town working as she went through the traumatic hair experience. Married in 2011, he spoke about her diagnosis earlier in the year. "For us it has brought us closer together. It's one of those times you get to test your mettle as a married couple."
