The week before Xmas I decided that I needed a mop chop – it had been so long since my last trip to the hair dressers the year may have contained two 2’s! I had really long hair when I have birth to 4yo, and it was annoying so in the weeks leading up to 22mo’s birth I went for a jaw length bob and loved it. I started out with good intentions of having it cut regularly but it just didn’t happen, and by December of last year my hair was getting long and straggly. I thought I’d push the boat out and get a new do for my work Xmas lunch, which was also my last day in the office before going on mat leave. After a busy morning the day before, full of last minute shopping and general errands, I called the local hairdressers and luckily she could just about squeeze me in.
She asked if I’d like to keep the chopped locks, to which I laughed and said no thanks. Do people actually keep their hair these days I replied? Oh she said haven’t you heard of the charity that make wigs for little girls who have lost their hair through cancer treatment? I had now! As long as your hair measures 17cm or more, The Little Princess Trust will be able to put it to good use. Thank goodness I went to that particular salon, and was seen to by that particular hairdresser otherwise I’d have been oblivious to the amazing work these guys do. To think that the hair which would have gone in the bin can now be made into a wig makes me really happy.
It’s great to start the new year with a good deed!
