A Montrose man who has been growing his hair for seven years decided to chop it all off in the name of charity.

Kyle Landers (25) had his 12 to 13 inch hair shaved off by hairdresser Kerry Wilkie of Eclips Hair Studio, on John Street, on Thursday (December 18) in aid of the The Little Princess Trust.

The Little Princess Trust is a charity which provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Kyle said: “I have been growing my hair for about seven years and I always make it a point to do one good thing for Christmas, usually I donate money but this year I was too strapped for cash, so I decided to give the one thing I had in abundance, my hair.

“While I thought of shaving my hair it also seemed like a good idea to see if I couldn’t get other people to donate to the cause by starting an online donation page, that will run on until the middle of March.”

He added: “I thought up the phrase ‘This Knight offers his armour so that a Princess may have a Crown’ as a way of summing up my feelings on the matter.

“My hair will grow back, but the children who have to go through those extreme treatments may never be able to do that.”
