At the age of almost four, Elijah Edney has never had a haircut in his life.
But now he can’t wait to visit the barber’s – for two reasons. Losing his 2ft long golden tresses will mean that strangers stop mistaking him for a girl.
And the hair will be donated to charity, to provide a wig for a child with cancer or other conditions.
Mrs Edney and her husband Dean, from Buckland, Hampshire, will give their son’s locks to the Little Princess Trust, which helps youngsters suffering from hair loss.
Mrs Edney, a dinner lady, said: 'Elijah has always had beautiful hair, so I let him grow it like he wanted.
'But now it is at a stage where people mistake him for a girl and he wants it cut into a boy's haircut.
'He will be four next month but everyone thinks he is a girl and he's started to get frustrated.'
Mrs Edney and Elijah's father, Dean Edney, want to collect enough money - ??350 - to transform it into a wig for a sick child.
Mrs Edney said: 'I couldn't bear to see all Elijah's beautiful hair go to waste and my mum mentioned about charities that use human hair to make into wigs.
'Elijah keeps telling people he is giving his hair to poorly princesses and he is so excited to get it done.
'He says that he no longer wants to have rock star hair and wants to look like his older brother.
'For little girls, hair is so important so hopefully Elijah's hair will make someone very happy.' Elijah's new hairdo will be a spiky two-inch crop.
A spokesman for the Little Princess Trust said: 'We're very grateful to anyone who decides to have their hair cut to donate it to the Little Princess Trust.
'As a result of hair donations such as this, the charity receives a large number of real-hair wigs free of charge to pass on to families whose children have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.'
