A Hackney woman who has been growing her hair since childhood is going for the chop to make wigs by The Little Princess Trust for youngsters who have lost their locks through illness and cancer treatment.
Ravinder Kaur decided that her hair, which is over a metre long and stretches down to her knees, would be put to better use by The Little Princess Trust.
The charity takes donations of hair to create ready-made wigs which would otherwise cost up to £2,000 each, for ill children who are finding it hard to come to terms with losing their hair.
Ms Kaur, who lives in Cazenove Road, Stoke Newington, and works as a teacher in Tottenham, is still feeling “shocked” at her decision.
“My hair has been part of me for 30 years and I haven’t known my life any other way, but I am happy to know that children with cancer can have the opportunity to re-experience the beauty of hair,” she said.

Her partner Keith Hanson, however, is looking forward to her new look.
“I feel excited by her decision and proud of her generous spirit,” he said.
