Nadia's Big Chop

Watch me snip, watch me nay nay!

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 approx 35.5cms! 

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.

Shout out to Leika, Dani & Brooke for always donating - it means so much! 

Thank you to everyone who has also shared my post 😍

I’m still getting asked how I feel about the whole situation - theres just so many emotions still. 

Happy - I know it’s going to a worthy cause and to kids in need. 

Nervous - I haven’t been to a hairdresser since 2010/2011 for a hair cut. 

Only 34 days to go to the final chop & to raise another $867

It’s official

Friday 28th May
So, I finally created this page and posted it on my facebook! 

It’s official - my locks are getting the chop! 

I’ve always admired my hair , the colour & the length. 

When professionally getting a hair do style - whether it was a braid or a braid bun it would take hours. 

Sorry to the hairdressers! 

Growing up - mum never wanted me to dye my hair. The fights we would get into cause my friends dyed their hair but I wasn’t allowed. 

Looking back, I now appreciate it as my hair colour has stayed the same and you can sometimes see red / blonde streaks in the sun - definitely from my Spanish side m. 

I’ll definitely miss my locks but it will always grow back. 

In other news I received my first donation! Wohoooooo. 

Thanks Ness ❤️
