One of the reasons for choosing a head shave for my 25 things for 25 years challenge, was to see how differently people would perceive me. So far, I’m glad to say, it’s all been very positive. My hair style is still very much in the honeymoon period of “wow! what have you done?” “why would you?”
The mohawk was chosen by year 8 at Brighton Hill Community College. I decided that the more publicity the better. So along with Carol & Katie from Basingstoke Consortium we hatched a plan. During my Work Skills Day Workshop I spoke about how people judge by appearence and how that can be a good or a bad thing. They then had the chance to vote for a hairstyle for me – a mohawk was the winner.
Barber students from BCoT then took to my head with clippers. It went down a storm. All the social media activity on the day helped to raise £497.50 for Basingstoke Consortium.
This raising money lark is infectious. We’ve now decided to continue the hair theme – it’s going to get more and more outrageous – different colours, stripes, wording, maybe even a cut-throat razoring! So, watch this head space!
