LINTON & MAC STYLIST SHAVES HEAD FOR BRAVE THE SHAVE CHARITY
A stylist from Linton & Mac, the multi award-winning, independent hairdressing salon based in Aberdeen, has taken part in the national ‘Brave the Shave’ campaign, to raise money for a children’s cancer charity.
What The Stylist Did
Linton & Mac stylist Alison Simpson, 26 chose to shave her head in order to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. More than forty of Alison’s family and friends joined Alison in support last month, watching as she ‘braved the shave’ and had her hair cut off and her head close-shaven, at the Inverurie Locos Football Club. Alison was motivated to take part in this charitable campaign after an ex-colleague’s daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
In addition to shaving her head, Alison also initiated a number of other fundraising events, including a bake sale at the Linton & Mac salon and a sponsored ‘wig afternoon’, which saw the entire Linton & Mac team sporting wigs all afternoon on the salon floor. Alison’s efforts have so far successfully raised in excess of £1,600.
All So Touched
Says Linton & Mac Directors, Jennifer Linton and Jaye MacDonald: “We were all so touched by Alison’s personal reason for wanting to support the Teenage Cancer Trust. Shaving her head was so brave, bold and selfless and we are immensely proud of Alison and all the hard work she has put in to raising money for this worthy cause.”
