Domestic Abuse campaigner Min Grob is facing a close shave to help a charity for those affected by domestic abuse in Norfolk and Waveney.
“You know that song ‘I want to wash that man right out of my hair’? Well I want to cut him out.
“It’s taken some time to get up the courage to do it but now is the right time,” she said. “You always know when something has happened because people change their hair… well I was 50 this year and I wanted to go into the second half of my life unencumbered – and that includes hair!”
She will be losing her long, dark hair at Leeway’s domestic violence conference on July 14 and she hopes to raise at least £2000.
“They have had a 27 per cent increase in demand, but not the corresponding funding,” said Min, founder of Conference on Coercive Control.
She is already making plans for her new hair, when it grows back but for now she plans a summer “swathed in scarves, maybe a panama” with a collection of bobble hats for the colder winter months.
