Yasmin England usually trims her hair every six weeks but on this occasion she decided to go a little shorter.

But what was supposed to be a cut of only a few inches turned into a lengthy seven inches so that she could send it off to charity Little Princess Trust.

The charity collects hair to give real hair wigs, for free, to children in the UK who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.

Yasmin said: “I wanted to get my hair cut shorter and the hairdresser said if I had seven inches off then it would be enough to donate to the charity.

“It is a good charity and I like what they do so I agreed to get it that bit shorter to help the charity.

“It took me about two years to get it down to the length it was and I will probably grow it that long again and donate more hair to the charity when it is long enough.

“It feels strange to have it this short but it is good as it reminds me how I have helped others.

“Everyone in the hair dressers said it was amazing that I had done it.”
