If you are reading my blog for a while, or follow me on Instagram, then you will know that for a long time I had this idea of cutting my hair for donation to the Little Princess Trust.
Cutting my locks was not an easy decision, but I was determined to do it and the thought was planted in my head almost two years ago, so gave myself plenty of time to get ready for the big change.
Last time I had my hair so short was four years ago and at that time I remember wondering if I would ever do it again. Years later and I came across the hair donation concept to make wigs for children with cancer. The moment I read about this great cause, I knew I would gladly cut my hair short again. It took me almost three years to grow my hair long and loads of patience to fulfil the hair donation guideline requirements, but totally worth the cause.
Thursday afternoon and I popped in the Saks hair & beauty salon at 409 Union Street, Aberdeen for my hair cut. Lovely Zander, delightfully offered to take no money from me and do it as part of charity and I was extremely happy with his generosity.
He first braided my hair and used a ruler to measure the lenght, then he asked me if I am happy with this and chopped 10 inches off.
A moment later, I was holding my two braids…
….and I was a completely different person!
Then it was time to finish off my hair cut. Zander kindly offered me not only a hair cut hair for the donation but also a complementary finish and style.
My beloved Gwen was there to encourage me and document the whole procedure with her camera. She was so happy with my new haircut, she kept saying I should have done it long time ago and that the change was so big, she couldnt even remember how I looked an hour ago.
I left the salon with two braids to post for the donation (yah!), a lighter head and an uber cool short bob cut.
At this point I would like to thank Zander and Saks, Union Street Salon for their support in this great cause and my friend Gwen for being there for me.
If you are interested in donating your hair or know someone who would like to do it, please visit the Little Princess Trust page and read all about the requirements and how you can take part and make a girl happy!
I normally don’t ask for things like this, but I would be gratefull if you would share this post on your facebook or other social media platforms and help me raise awareness.
Thanks for reading.
