Guy loses his long locks as part of a massive charity effort
Guy Bashford lost his shoulder-length hair in his first visit to the hairdressers for 10 years - all in the name of charity. Guy, who is 27 years and lives in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead who is Environmental Resources Assistant at Dacorum Borough Council, has embarked on a gruelling fund-raising campaign with his brother Giles to raise £5,000 for the Children's Society.
The hair cut - a very short crop - is another fund-raising attempt, and Guy has been collecting pledges of sponsorship money from his colleagues at the Council. The long red locks faced the chop on Friday, 30th June, at Toni & Guy in Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, which agreed to cut Guy's hair for free to help him raise cash.
Guy said: "It's been more than 10 years since I visited the hairdressers and I was a bit apprehensive. I had long hair for so long that I had mixed feelings about seeing it go. Thankfully the amount of money pledged helped reduce the pain when I made the dreaded visit."
Guy said of his new look "I won't grow my hair again as I don't think ponytails suit 40 year olds".
