Idea off the top of her head
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.
