Scissors snipped and clippers buzzed at Griffith Central on April 15 when seven teenagers lopped off their hair to raise money for cancer research.
The ringleader was Year 11 student Abby Favell, who auctioned off 13 locks of her long hair to an excitable crowd of about 100 people.
Those who won the bidding war got to snip off a lock of hair personally and take it home with them as a memento.
In this way Abby raised quite a pretty penny, with each lock going for about $50 thanks to the smooth auctioneering of her classmate Kieran Andreatta.
All in all they managed to raise over $12,000 for the Leukemia Foundation, with the money to go towards research into blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.
Abby shaved off her hair alongside her classmates Eliza Burcham, Stacey Cameron, Abby Favell, Georgie Quade, Bryn Francis, Levi Hughes and Matthew Senes.
Hairdressers from Fox and Co Hair Studio made short work of everyone's hair, and by the end they had several ziplock bags stuffed with locks and clippings.
It was a deeply personal cause for Matthew Senes, who shaved his head in memory of his grandpa who died this year on January 30 after a long battle with leukemia.
His classmate Levi Hughes said he was shaving his head to show solidarity to all the people affected by cancer, both directly and indirectly.
"We all know someone who's been affected by it," Levi said.
"It affects everyone in some way or another."
