A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl is set to have her hair cut for the very first time – and then donate it to kids who have lost their own locks.

Little Lucie Muir saw her mum, Aynslie, watching videos on Facebook about how wigs are made for children who have lost their hair due to alopecia or chemotherapy, among other reasons.

She then told her mum that she wanted to grow her hair and get it cut to help these kids, a moment which pleased her mum.

Mum Aynslie, who lives in Tullibody, said: "Lucie has always said to me that she wanted to grow her hair to her feet then cut it to give to children that have lost their own hair.

"Although it's not yet at her feet she's decided it's time to get it cut shorter and is long enough to get cut to just below her shoulders and can still send to the Little Princess Trust.

"I was really pleased when she said she wanted to do it, and really proud," she added.

"I asked her if she was sure because I've always loved her hair. She's never had it cut and is now wanting to try something because she's never actually had a hairstyle."

The cut will take place on March 31 at Mayfair, Alloa, and will be her Aunt Sandra who has the honour of cutting off her locks.

To celebrate the haircut, her mum and aunties will surprise Lucie with various hair accessory gifts that night so that she can begin to style her hair any way she wants it.

Aynslie said: "She isn't bothered about looking different or anything like that – in fact she keeps telling people that she will be getting her hair cut."

The family are also trying to raise £350 so that the hair which is donated by Lucie can be made into a wig by The Little Princess Trust.

A Just Giving page set up for the fundraising has already reached £147 and Aynslie told the Advertiser that more pledges have been made and the figure should be comfortably met by the time the big cut rolls around.
