Nicola gets the chop chop in aid of charity
It’s a case of hair today gone tomorrow for Cambuslang woman Nicola Samson who got her locks chopped off for charity.
Halfway girl Nicola got 11 inches of her hair cut off for the Little Princess Trust, a charity who provides wigs and hair pieces for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment.
Nicola’s hair will by made into a wig for a child and she’s also raising money for the cause.
Nicola, who works in the City Chambers in Glasgow City Centre, got the chop at the Anderson Hair Salon in Glasgow yesterday (Tuesday, September 1)
And although it was a nerve wracking procedure, Nicola is pleased with the result.
The Cathkin High pupil said: “My hair is what I’m most confident about and I wanted to give it to help a child out who has lost theirs.
“I made the very big decision to cut my long hair to my collar bone, to give a child their sparkle back.
“I’d like to thank Keith Anderson, Salon Director of Anderson Hair Salon, who very kindly gave me a complimentary hair cut, they did a great job! I felt like I was being pampered!”
She added: “I heard about what the Little Princess Trust do, I was very moved by this as my hair provides me confidence.
“I could understand how hard it would be for the children to lose their hair due to cancer treatments or alopecia.”
Nicola also runs an online business called “Nicola’s Little Shop of Memories” and last month for every item bought she donated an extra pound to the Little Princess Trust.
Nicola has set a fundraising target of £350. To donate visit https://www.justgiving.com/NicolaSamson.
