For years, I’ve had crazily long hair. I had my hair cut a few years ago and it was very short – the shortest it’s ever been (except when I was a baby, duh) – and I hated it! I have a long face, so very short hair looked a bit stupid. So for the next few years, I just let my hair grow and grow.
Until the end of 2017, when I decided to get it cut.
Of course, I wasn’t going to let all this hair go to waste! In the UK, there’s a charity called Little Princess Trust. LPT make wigs for children and young adults who have lost their hair due to cancer and other illnesses. I got a point where I was sick of my hair being so long, and I knew that there are so many people out there who need it a hell of a lot more than I do. So a few months ago, I set up a fundraising page and pledged to donate 12 inches of my hair.
