Two young girls are sporting funky new bobs after they selflessly took a seat in the hairdresser’s chair and waved goodbye to their long plaits.
Friends Alice Dixon, from Bourne, and Lucie Moore, from Dyke, decided to have their hair chopped off in aid of The Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real hair wigs for children suffering from hair loss due to cancer treatment.
The girls, both Year 9 pupils at Bourne Grammar School, were inspired after seeing videos online.
Alice’s proud mum Elizabeth, who went to Amici Hair and Beauty Salon in Langtoft, to support the girls said they were both nervous when they saw the hairdressers Sheena and Emma wielding the big scissors.
But they were so delighted with the finished result, they’ve even threatened to go through the ordeal again once their locks have grown back.
Elizabeth said: “They have not had a single negative comment - everyone has been so positive, it’s been such a great experience for them both.
“They saw a video on YouTube and they just thought it would be a really nice thing to do.”
Elizabeth put out an appeal on Facebook to find a hairdresser willing to cut the girls hair free of charge and had an overwhelming response from a variety of salons across the area.
She thanked Amici owner Sheena Mccullough for her generosity.
