The COVID-19 lockdown has not only had an impact on physical and mental health and wellbeing, but also on our hair with many people becoming quasi hairdressers while access to hairdressing salons and barbers was limited.

Utilising these interesting hair days, Variety – the Children’s Charity has launched fundraiser called, ‘Bad Hair May’ to meet the urgent needs of vulnerable Aussie kids who are sick or have a disability.

The concept is simple: on Friday 29 May 2020 choose your hair style and get creative with scissors, clippers, colours, bands and sprays.

Make sure to record your experience and once you’re done, share a video or a selfie on social media.

No matter how fabulous, freaky or far-out – show everyone your new do, while encouraging them to give generously to the charity.

It’s a way to show the world that your ‘bad hair day’ really can, do great things.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is stressful for everyone in our community. But for our most vulnerable Aussie kids and their families, the effects could push them over the edge.

“Parents who have lost their jobs are struggling to care for their kids who are sick or have a disability.

Every dollar raised through Bad Hair May will make a difference to them,” says CEO Steve Wakerley.

Variety – the Children’s Charity believes all Aussies kids deserve a fair go. Variety helps empower children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability to reach their full potential, regardless of ability or background.
