Roberta Edgington displays the nine inches of hair she had cut off while Penny Grimard from Intrigue Hair Studio works on cutting and styling the remaining hair.
Edgington is donating her pony tail to the Canadian Cancer Society in honour of her longtime friend Annette Thurman who recently lost her battle with cancer.
The hair will be sent away to be made into a wig for those losing their hair during cancer treatments.
“Annette had the most gorgeous red hair and was a wonderful cook and gardener,” Edgington says. “She always grew the best strawberries and we spent many hours in the kitchen together trying out new recipes”
If you would like more information about donating your hair or want to join in the fight against cancer please call the Williams Lake Canadian Cancer Society office at 250-392-3442.
