Idea off the top of her head

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

WIL­LOW War­ren was no stranger to peo­ple star­ing or even touch­ing her hair, but now most of it has gone.

The East Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent lost her stun­ning braids to raise money for Breast Can­cer Re­search Cen­tre WA at Iden­ti­fied Hair in Kens­ing­ton on Fe­bru­ary 14.

“I’ve had the braids for three months; I’ve al­ways had dif­fer­ent styles but when I was in Venice I saw a beau­ti­ful woman with braids,” she said.

“When I came back to Perth, I knew that’s how I wanted my hair.

“It’s been re­ally in­ter­est­ing hav­ing the braids. I wished I had blogged about it be­cause I’ve had peo­ple up to me to talk about it and peo­ple think it’s okay to even hold it.

“I’ve been at cof­fee shops and they serve me be­fore other peo­ple, which I find very weird.”

Ms War­ren said she de­cided to hold the fundraiser af­ter two friends and two work col­leagues were di­ag­nosed with can­cer re­cently.

“I got in touch with the cen­tre and the (chief ex­ec­u­tive) thought it was a great idea. I’ve had an amaz­ing re­sponse from my own per­sonal net­works and I’d like to open it up to any­one else who’d like to do­nate,” she said.

To do­nate, visit­ject/goldie­locks-gone.
