Beth Borrett had her hair shaved off at The Egg hair salon in the city centre.

She sent her long locks off to the Little Princess Trust and also raised £237.

Miss Borrett decided to donate her hair to the charity because it provides real hair wigs to children and young adults up to the age of 24 who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Miss Borrett said: 'This has generally been an empowering and thrilling experience, going from loads of hair to none was something new but it's generally made me feel beautiful. I would do it all again if I could.'
