Getting the chop for charity

A former student returned to college to undergo a radical re-style of her silken tresses.

Jassi Auluck, 21, visited the our Hair & Beauty Academy to ask stylists to chop a daunting seven inches from the hair she had been growing for six years to her waist.

But it was all in a good cause because Jassi will be donating her shorn locks to the Princess Trust Charity – which uses real hair to create wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or other illness.

Former Beauty Therapy student Jassi, who lives in Farnborough, put her makeover in the hands of Level 2 Hairdressing student Ellen Pullinger, aged 17.

Before the scissors came out, Jassi said: “I know it’s going to be a big shock but I will be really happy if it benefits young children who have been through an illness.

Jassi, who now works as a professional make-up artist but returns to the Hair & Beauty Academy regularly for haircuts, was very happy with her new style.

Hair & Beauty Programme Manager Clair Bryan said: “We were very happy to accommodate Jassi’s request and think she was very brave to cut off all that hair in one go!

“Ellen did a great job too and I think Jassi’s new style really suits her.

“It’s such a great idea to donate to a charity like the Little Princesses Trust and I’m sure there is a little girl or boy out there who will be very happy to receive their new hair.”
The college’s Hair & Beauty Academy is an officially Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ facility where students train to become professional Hairdressers and Beauty Therapists.
