A young client of Sunderland College’s commercial salon, City Salon has donated her hair to the Little Princess Charity.
Level 3 Hairdressing students welcomed Alice, the college’s client, into City Salon where she had her long locks cut ready to donate to the charity.
The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people up to the age of 24 who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
Alice, who attends a local dance school was inspired to donate her hair after learning that another dancer who attends the same school wears a wig which was donated from the Little Princess Trust.
Alice was moved so much by her friend’s story that she donated her beautiful long hair to help someone less fortunate than herself who may be suffering from a similar form of hair loss.
Debbie Oliver, Hairdressing Lecturer, said: “We thought this was a fantastic gesture and took great pride in helping Alice achieve her good deed. Tracey, our Level 3 hairdressing student was delighted with the outcome, and Alice was thrilled with her new haircut and all for such a fantastic cause.”
