YOU could say Nicola Bordignon is a cut above the rest.
The 11-year-old has had her beautiful flowing locks lopped for a good cause.
Her hair will be used to craft a wig for a woman affected by hair loss from cancer.
Sadly the plucky St Pat's year 5 student is no stranger to cancer.
Both of her late grandfathers had the disease and a teacher at her school is currently undergoing treatment.
"I was originally going to sell it for extensions to make some money for myself," she said.
"But then I saw the little girl on the Look Good Feel Better ad on TV giving her Barbie's hair to her mum and I thought I could do that with my hair.
"It's a good cause and my hair will grow back. It's amazing to be able to change people's lives. It would be so hard to look in the mirror and see no hair when you have cancer.
"I think more people should do it. You feel good about yourself when you are not being selfish."
Nicola's mum Frances said she was extremely proud of her thoughtful daughter.
"She bought tears to my eyes and I'm very, very proud of her," Mrs Bordignon said.
"She has been growing it for about two years and now that she has done it once she said she'll do it again when it grows long enough.
"National Donate Your Hair Week starts on Monday November 12. It is something that Pantene do as part of their beautiful lengths campaign. You send off your hair to them and they make free wigs for cancer patients."
