A TEENAGER had about eight inches of her hair chopped off for charity.
Susannah Barton, 16, had not had her hair cut since December but decided to go for a cut so that her locks could be used in wigs for children who have undergone cancer treatment.
Her mother Frances, 52, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and lost her hair during chemotherapy treatment. She is now in remission.
Susannah, who lives in Greys Road, Henley, said: “I decided I was going to get a good amount of hair off and then I heard you could donate it.
“ I will miss it — I like having long hair but it’ll be good to be different.”
She had her hair cut for free at Textures salon in Greys Road by art director Sandor Zverko.
Afterwards, Susannah said: “It’s such a change but I like it. My hair feels lighter!”
Her hair will go to the Little Princess Trust and money she would have paid for the cut will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
Mrs Barton said: “I think it’s absolutely fabulous. I came to the salon to get my hair sorted out when it grew back.”
