Story

So I’ve been growing my hair for over 3 years now . It started out for a bet (which I won by the way!) then it became a lifestyle choice. However, now as I’m losing it anyway and am 40 next year I really shouldn’t have a man bun! So I’m getting it cut off for charity!

For anyone who knows me, knows why I’ve chosen this charity! Sadly there’s several reasons which I won’t go into!

I was going to just donate the hair to the Princess Trust and leave it at that. Not a fan of the whole ‘look at me! Look at all the good I’m doing!’ thing but several people have nagged and convinced me to do a bit of a fundraising thing for just having it cut off. It all goes to a good cause so if this can help raise even more then it can only be a good thing.

Some people run marathons or swim miles, others bake loads of delicious things or run massive events. I’m just having my hair cut! Maximum outcome: minimum effort! 😎 👍
