Eleven-year-old Imogen Moon decided to go ahead with the chop after hearing about the Little Princess Trust a charity that provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment​.

Imogen is delighted with her new look, after Lisa at VIP's salon in Whitby cut her hair much shorter.

Lisa commented that it was the longest hair she had ever cut.

Her mum Jenny said: "Imogen’s hair is currently traveling by post to the trust. We as a family are so proud of her."

VIP's added on their Facebook page: "Well done to this little girl, who donated her luscious long hair to the little Princess Trust.

"Absolutely amazing - she should be so proud of herself."

Fylingdales School pupil Imogen said she felt bad that other children who have been really poorly wouldn't get those compliments about their hair.
