A FLINT woman who is known for her long hair will bravely lose her locks for a good cause.

Roseanna Phillips from Flint has had long her all of her life, but she has decided to not only go for a re-style, but will donate to the Little Princess Trust.

Currently, her hair is around 39inches, 20 of which will be donated and a fundraising page has been set up.

She told the Leader: "Ever since I was a child, I've always had long hair, it was past my knees as a kid.

"When I was about 10 I had a bob and I absolutely hated it so I never got it cut short again.

"It's very rare I get a hair cut and if I do it's a trim. My hair is my trademark, it's a part of me.

"I do now have two little girls and my hair is that long I can sit on it, it can be quite frustrating.

"Over the last few months I was thinking that I do need a good cut. With us going into lockdown that never happened, but the more I thought about it, I didn't want it to be for nothing.

"So I looked into donating it. The Little Princess Trust is absolutely fantastic. If any of my girls or nieces were ever in that situation I'd like to know that there are people like myself, donatin to the cause."

The target was set at £200 which has already been met.

Roseanna added: "I know the longer lengths of hair are sought after so I thought I could help them out as well as have a re-style myself.

"I am scared, everyone knows me for my hair so it will be a big change but it's for a good cause."

The hair chop will take place on July 16 at Havana in Flint.
