Brave David has the chop for children’s cancer charity

Brave David Sayles, from Arnold, has had his waist-length hair cut short for a charity which makes wigs for children with cancer.

After years of not cutting his hair, David (23) decided to have the chop to help Little Princess Trust as he says he had heard of the great work they do. His Dad, a regular KH Hair client, took him along to the High Street salon in Arnold where he said goodbye to his long hair once and for all.

“I honestly can’t remember the last time I had my hair cut.” he says. “To be honest, I just couldn’t be bothered, but I got up one morning and decided I was sick of it. I’d heard of the charity so I thought it was a great opportunity to help.”

Stylist, Eden Walker, plaited David’s hair before giving a him a neat and stylish trim free of charge.

I know this didn’t require any major commitment or training, unlike some other charity endeavours, but I’ve been attached to my long hair for a very long time so it was a bit of a shock to look in the mirror afterwards. I’m really glad I did it and very grateful to the team at KH Hair who made me feel really comfortable and relaxed. The reaction from my friends and family has been very positive – once they eventually recognised me.”

David says he was so impressed with his new haircut, he has promised to become a model for the salon’s future trainees.

Salon director, Dawn Bramhall says: “David was so brave and we’re really proud of him. He looks completely different. We’re really glad his Dad persuaded him to come along. Little Princess Trust is a wonderful charity that we have supported for a number of years and we were very happy to help.”
