Ghodsi, who runs Ghodsi’s Barbers in Warwick Street, held the event as a one year memorial for her late husband, Alan Young.

She shaved Sally Ireland’s locks, raising £779.50 for Home for Good and £524.88 for Chestnut Tree House.

Ghodsi also kindly pledged to match the amounts raised.

Sally said: “It’s quite daunting to go from having long red hair to nothing!

"A bit like losing part of your identity.

"But the charities are worth it.”

They thanked everyone who donated.
