Considering she had her locks chopped after spending all her young life growing them, six-year-old Brooke Higgins seems to have taken the new look in her stride.

In fact, it was mum Amy who was more nervous on the day her daughter had her hair, which reached down to her knees, cut for charity.

The big-hearted Marston Green Infant School pupil took the plunge last Friday and went under the scissors at the Village Salon to raise money for the Help Harry, Help Others charity.

The Chelmsley Wood youngster also decided she didn’t want the cut-offs to be wasted. She’s had them sent to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for young cancer patients who lose their hair during treatment.

“Brooke was fine - it was me who had the butterflies,” Amy said.

“She absolutely loves her new hair. It is shorter than she thought it would be, but she’s really happy with it.

“She said to me - mummy I don’t have to stand up in the bath now to have my hair washed.”

If people want to support Brooke’s cause, they can donate through the Harry Moseley Help Harry, Help Others website, keying-in Brooke Higgins’ name.
