Civil servant gets Britain's worst haircut to raise money for charityOctober 6, 2021
CIVIL servant Stu Turner is turning heads after getting Britain’s worst haircut for charity.
The 36-year-old’s new look, dubbed the “ringhead”, is a thin, circular strip of hair which goes right around his chin, face and head.
He decided to get a radical, fundraising trim after growing long, flowing locks and a full beard during the pandemic.
But the style was chosen by the person who donated the biggest amount, which was £316.25 — gleefully pledged by Stu’s brother.
Stu said: “When everyone saw his idea, they all jumped on board, because it’s the worst possible thing you could imagine. I wouldn’t have minded something a little less embarrassing.”
His stunt has raised more than £1,000 for The Little Princess Trust and Cancer Research UK.
He said: “I went out the other day and my hair went down really well, which wasn’t expected.
“The strangest thing was that some people didn’t assume it was a charity thing or a bet — a lot thought it was some new, trendy Generation Z-style haircut.”
It was done at Andrea’s Salon in Roath, Cardiff, where Stu lives — and took more than an hour.
Stu said: “At the beginning of the first lockdown, I said I wasn’t going to cut my hair and beard until we were back in the office.
“But what I expected to be three months turned out to be 18 — so I had a lot of hair to lose.
“It’s been an adjustment. It’s definitely colder.”
