Our beautiful daughter Charlotte is going for a radical haircut today. Before I tell you a little more I thought I’d share her pre-prom picture with you.

Very happy with boyfriend Jack Smith. They were both more nervous than I expected but when we got to the hotel it was quite a daunting crush of peers, parents and interested onlookers that they had to walk past. She put her hair  into a low roll or chignon for the occasion.


This afternoon the whole length of  it will be chopped off at the nape of her neck after which she will donate the hair to the Little Princess Trust. We think there’ll be over 10″ in length and the hair will be used to make wigs for children who’ve suffered hair loss through diseases like cancer. Charlotte also wants to raise funds for the charity and if anyone would like to support her they can do so at https://www.justgiving.com/Charlie-Battersby/

I will of course be posting before and after photos. For now, I fervently hope she’ll like the new elfin cut.
