A Seaton hairdresser will host a pamper day for youngsters at the end of the month to raise money for a charity which provides real-hair wigs to children.
Amie Sturgeon, who owns Luxy Locks on Habour Road, will hold the two-hour long event in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
The charity supplies wigs to children who have lost their own through cancer treatment – but each one costs £350.
Amie said: “The wigs are a lot of money. My aim is to change one child’s life this year.”
The sessions take place on Tuesday, July 29 from noon to 2pm.
Entry costs £3, which includes a hair and nail treatment, canapés and Disney music to sing along to.
Amie, who has suffered from Alopecia in the past, hopes the event will make people more aware of hair loss and give youngsters a better understanding of why it occurs.
“I can imagine how hard it is for a child to lose their hair,” she added. “I hope this event makes people more aware so they get a better understanding.”
