A seven-year-old girl from St Albans had 10 inches of her hair cut off to raise money for charity.
Evie Smedley, a pupil at Garden Fields School, decided to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust after a family member was diagnosed with cancer.
Her haircut took place at Renaissance Hairdressers in Hatfield Road in July, and raised more than £400 for the charity.
Evie’s mum Joanne Corley said: “My daughter-in-law has terminal cancer so we thought about it last year because a couple of girls at school had done it.
“She saw a DVD from the Little Princess Trust and it made her more determined. I thought she’d be upset because they’d taken quite a bit off. It’s just to her shoulders and she’s loving it - especially in this weather.”
