LA Hairazors stylists Dianne Vessey

Shaving it off to help disabled community

It took years for Vivian Bartlett to grow 30 inches of hair and only a matter of minutes for her entire head to be shaved.

It took years for Vivian Bartlett to grow 30 inches of hair and only a matter of minutes for her entire head to be shaved at Langford salon LA Hairazors.

As she entered the salon she brought a selection of toques she knitted to help her prepare for the brisk fall day.

“I’ve always wanted to shave my head for (charity),” said Bartlett adding the shortest her hair has ever been was about three inches long.

Barlett along with her friend Kathy Wilkinson have collected about $2,000 and are hoping now that they have shaved their heads to get more donation for the cause.

The pair have been raising money and collecting pledges for Victoria Disability Resource Centre.

“We appreciate their efforts and any money that comes to the centre will go to the disabled community,” said Mike Hanson, executive director of the Victoria Disability Resource Centre.
