A Sheffield man has proved he is a cut about the rest when it comes to raising money for charity.
Lee Nuttall, from Shiregreen, has had a Mohican hairstyle in the shape of a chameleon shaved into his hair to raise funds for Sheffield Hospitals Charity – and if that wasn’t enough he has sprayed it a vibrant green colour.
The 33-year-old was inspired by a picture shown to him by a work colleague and decided to get the chop for a good cause.
He decided he would also go green because of the festive season.
Lee works as a machine operator and says his bosses don’t mind his wacky hairstyle and the other staff have already donated.
He said he will keep his haircut until January and is hoping to raise as much money as possible over the Christmas period.
Lee said: “I have family who in the past and present have had cancer and most recently my Nan has been diagnosed with breast cancer, people have been saying it looks really good, even though it is a bit daft.
He added: “It was my Dad’s idea to do this for the charity and for Weston Park Hospital, our local community cancer hospital.”
Lee’s hair was cut and coloured by Jack Connor at GHJ Hair in Ecclesfield but he had a shock when he first saw his reflection.
“The green came out much more fluorescent than I thought it would.
“It is really bright and I thought what have I done?
Lee added: “I’m six feet 11 inches tall and already attract a lot of attention because of that and this just adds to it.”
His friends and family may not have made many cutting remarks about his new look but Lee’s girlfriend Kathyrn Pedley, 26, is not a fan of his new hairstyle.
Lee said: “She hates it, but it is all for a good cause.”
