Tracy's Big Chop!

During lockdown, like everyone, I didn’t get my hair cut, apart from a bit of home trim by my son’s girlfriend. My last proper haircut was about December 2019. However, when we were finally allowed our freedom, I didn’t get around to it for ages, so I thought, as it had got rather long, I would look into donating my hair for wig-making for people who lose their hair due to cancer treatment or other illnesses. I tried various places but struggled to find one that would take my old white / grey / blonde hair (my natural colour now). I haven’t dyed it since 2014, apart from temporary blue streaks for festivals! (I have just carefully dyed my fringe blue, as I am volunteering at a festival this week). I finally found a wig maker who creates grey wigs (as well as other colours) who are happy to take my hair donation – the company is Banbury Postiche - Professional Hairdressing and Wigmaking Materials. However, I wanted to use the opportunity to fundraise for my friend Julie’s charity, Headwrappers, Whilst they don’t supply wigs, they provide headwear (and support) for those with hair loss caused by cancer treatment. My hair now needs a good cut! The scraggy ends are heading for my waist at the back. So I have taken the plunge and booked ‘The Big Chop’ for 30th September. I’m a bit scared as I have always had longish hair, and I’m not sure how short it will need to be to get enough for a wig: I will have to leave that to my hairdresser! You can make a difference by donating today to HeadWrappers.

Please sponsor me by donating to Julie’s lovely charity (this will also stop me from chickening out!!). Thank you very much.
