CHOPPED OFF: Dani-Lee's hair will go to sick kids

AFTER growing her hair for seven years, Dani-Lee Kershaw's beautiful locks have come off.

They will now go towards helping sick children who suffer from disease related hair loss.

The Bauple resident had her big hairdresser appointment on Saturday, and her hair has been sent away and and will be transformed into a wig.

"You need at least 35cm of visible hair so it can be made into a wig and I'm up to about 50cm," Ms Kershaw said in the lead-up to the haircut

"I have such a mop of hair that I can actually make a difference in someone's life."

The hair was donated to Variety.

"This is something I wanted to do before my hair turns grey," Ms Kershaw said.

It can cost about $6000 to turn hair into a wig, and there is still time to donate.
