08 Jul Andrew Barton Cuts Tara Bhavnani’s Hair for Charity
We are excited to share that Andrew Barton, Creative Director at Headmasters, cut a tremendous 12 inches of hair off Tara Bhavnani a First Artist with the Royal Ballet, who kindly donated her long locks to The Little Princess Trust.
Andrew explained “It was such an honour to cut Tara’s hair; she was understandably nervous so I wanted to concentrate on making her feel comfortable and relaxed especially after such a huge pledge to cut her hair for The Little Princess Trust. Hair is such a personal part of your identity and understanding how connected people are to their hair is an essential part a good experience for any client. At Headmasters our philosophy is beautiful, fashionable, confidence boosting hair so I wanted to make sure Tara felt confident about her choice and it was essential that her new look was low maintenance and versatile for her work as First Artist.
I kept the cut simple and easy to maintain and made sure there was still enough length left for her to be able to pull her hair up and back. In my work as the Hairdressing Ambassador for The Little Princess Trust I’m acutely aware of the effect that hair loss has on a child. Hair is a statement of identity and in my experience can be confidence boosting at every age.”
The Little Princess Trust provide real hair wigs free of charge to children and young people with hair loss as a result of Cancer treatment and other conditions.
