A Sheffield woman has snipped away a staggering 25 inches of hair for a good cause.

Denise Murray, of Blackstock Road, Gleadless, said goodbye to her beloved locks in aid of the Little Princess Trust, which will use the hair to make a wig for a child who has lost their hair through cancer treatment.

Denise, aged 52, said: “Lots of people thought I wouldn’t go through with it but once I had made my mind up that I was doing it, I just went for it.

“I love my new hair. It’s been cut right up to my neck and people have said I look years younger. I’m all chuffed, walking around with my head held high.”

Denise said the cut has also made her morning routine much quicker.

“I love it,” she said.

“My head feels so much lighter and I haven’t got the hassle any more. It’s brilliant now - I can just stick my head under the tap and style it then I’m done!”

Denise had the big cut at Salon Martez on The Moor.

She was inspired to cut her hair for the Little Princess Trust by Jasmyn Chan, the heroic Sheffield schoolgirl who had her hair cut for the same cause before she was tragically killed as she pushed her friend out of the way of an oncoming car.
