Rumors have been flying for months that Jessie J will be parting with her iconic locks for charity, but now the singer has confirmed stories.
Next year she will be shaving her head, but has yet to decide which charity she will be supporting. Jessie’s locks are a huge part of her image so getting rid of them is a huge commitment. Jessie has stated in the past how important charity is to her and how she intends to use her fame to spread positive messages.
“It’s hair,” she tweeted. “It will grow back. Even if it takes 2 years, if it saves lives it’s worth it. Even if its 1 life that’s something.”
Celebrities rely heavily on their image and Jessie J isn’t the only one to sacrifice this in aid of charity; Jodie Marsh had her eyebrows tattooed on television in aid of Children in Need in 2008 and Justin Bieber recently cut his infamous ‘surfer hair’ and donated the cast offs to a charity auction. On the other side of the spectrum, Cheryl Cole sold her image in aid of the Prince's Trust when she auctioned off twenty of her iconic dresses online.
