Six-year-old Olivia Wilson, of Port Hope, gets one last look at her long hair before hairstylist Tera Hellman of Nir-va-na Hair Studio cuts it all off as Olivia’s mom, Kate, looks on.
Olivia decided she would donate her hair to Locks of Love, a public non-profit organization that provides hair pieces to financially disadvantaged patients under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
Olivia was also participating in the Who Is NOBODY? project for her Grade 1 class at Central Public School in which the students help other people, the environment or animals.
