Holly's Big Chop

I'm chopping my hair and need your help!

I have made the decision to make a difference by cutting and donating my hair to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition.

I'll be chopping off 36cm on Friday 19th February 2021.

Wigs cost families up to $6,000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth. By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need. Thank you for helping kids in need.

Crazy Hair Day

Tuesday 2nd Mar
As I am a teacher at Mansfield Primary School, I organised a Crazy Hair Day to help raise awareness, support and money for children living with a medical condition who need a wig.
The whole school got involved and many families donated to the cause. We even had a competition with certificates and prizes for the craziest hair! 

The big CHOP

Tuesday 2nd Mar
I had my hair cut on Friday 19th February at Michindis Hair Salon, Mansfield. To my surprise, my wonderful hairdresser, Natalie, generously chopped my hair for free! So I was able to donate the money that I would have spent on my haircut to Variety - The Children's Charity.

My original aim was 36 cm, but we ended up chopping 40 cm, weighing 120 grams!

I had some wonderful friends come to support my big chop, as well as my husband who had a go at chopping one pigtail off himself! A couple of students from my school got to cut some as well. I even chopped the last one off myself!

Today's the day!

Friday 19th Feb

Last day with my long locks! 💇‍♀️
We measured my hair last night to be 70 cm at its longest point!

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! You're all amazing ♥

Every little girl deserves to feel like a princess

Tuesday 16th Feb
I'm not going to lie. I love my hair.
For as long as I can remember, I have always received very generous compliments about my hair - usually from complete strangers!
Whenever my Grandma would take me to the hairdressers, she used to pretend to sweep all my ringlets off the ground to stick them to her own head.
But you know what? Even though I love my hair and I will miss it dearly, I know that somewhere out there, some little girl will love it even more. She will get to live her dream of being Ariel.
And hey, I can always grow it back, right?! That's something that little girl will never be able to say.

Post-wedding chop

Tuesday 9th Feb
I have been growing my hair long for about nine years now with the intention of chopping my locks after my wedding day. 
It has now been almost one year since our big day, so it's time to take the chop and help kids in need!

Thanks for all the support
