Chop to your chin for children's cancer charity!

Long-locked salon customers are being urged to take the chop to support youngsters undergoing gruelling cancer treatment.

Salon Ten, in Much Wenlock, has teamed up with the Little Princess Trust and GHD Hair to take part in a nationwide campaign encouraging clients of all ages to proudly ‘Chop to Your Chin’ for charity.

Anyone with long hair is asked to donate seven inches or more of their hair to create wigs through the Little Princess Trust. The Little Princess Trust started in 2006 in memory of five-year-old Hannah Tarplee, who sadly lost her battle with cancer the previous year. The charity supplies free-of-charge, real-hair wigs to children who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatments and other illnesses.

Salon owner, Nicky Marcar, said she was delighted to be supporting the campaign with events planned throughout September and October.

She said: “For anybody who is considering a new look for autumn, then this has to be the best possible incentive to take the plunge and go for the chop. The Little Princess Trust does great work in providing children with real-hair wigs which can help raise their self esteem during a very difficult time in their lives.”

“Our stylists relish the challenge of a restyle and can guide clients towards a brand new look, whether they opt for shoulder-length waves, a bob, or daring pixie cut or crop. Plus the new look will also be half price to support this great cause.”

Customers braving the scissors will receive a Chop to Your Chin certificate and are encouraged to upload selfies on to social media – using @ghdhair #choptoyourchin – to inspire others to go for the chop too!
