Scott Sedman’s beautiful curly locks are no more - chopped in the name of charity.
Scott lost his locks as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave, donating his hair, which measured about 47 centimeters when stretched out, to the Australian Alopecia Foundation to be used to make wigs.
After 31 years of growing his trademark mullet, it is no more.
A large crowd of family, friends and work colleagues gathered at Dunn and Williams Electrical and Air Conditioning in Nowra on Friday afternoon to witness the shaving.
With plenty of encouragement and cheering, Richelle Wood of St Georges Basin Hair and Beauty, went to work, first cutting Scott’s hair.
Scott’s initial response to just losing his locks was one of shock as to how lighter his head felt.
“Since I decided to do this I actually couldn’t wait to get rid of my hair,” he said “but it really feels lighter.
“It’s incredible how light it feels.”
Once his locks were gone, there was no going back and to make good on his sponsorship deal with workmates, the electric razor came out and the shave was completed with a number two.
“It actually doesn’t feel too bad,” he said.
“He looks like a new man,” said his boss Wayne Dunn “he looks like a young fellow again.”
And there is no truth to the rumour Mr Dunn would now be docking his pay because he looks young enough to be an apprentice.
Another work colleague came to his aid, offering up a beanie to keep his head warm as he heads into winter.
Scott achieved his goal of raising $1500 for the Leukaemia Foundation.
“A big thanks to everyone who supported me and donated,” he said.
