A real-life Rapunzel, an 11-year-old schoolgirl who has never had a haircut, is set have her first ever trim after her locks grew to an incredible three-and-a-half feet.
Aimee Chase, who is moving from Wicor Primary School to Cams Hill Secondary School in Hampshire next month, has locks which are so long her hair reaches all the way down to her knees.
But the 4ft 11" junior school pupil, who classmates call 'the girl with the long hair', has now decided to undergo a drastic change.
She will get just over 2ft of it lopped off before she starts at secondary school this September.
Aimee said: "I'm going up to senior school and I want to do different things with my hair."
"It's going to feel weird because I have had long hair for so long and now it's going to be cut short."
Not wanting anything to go to waste, Aimee has decided to donate the cuttings to charity the Little Princess Trust.
The organisation provides wigs and hair pieces for children who suffer hair loss during treatment for cance
Aimee said: "At first I just thought that I would get it cut."
"But with so much hair, I don't want it to go to waste. I'm quite proud of giving it to somebody else who could use it."
Aimee made the decision to donate her hair because her family has friends who have suffered from cancer.
She will have her locks cut off by hairdresser cousin Anushka Chase, 21, at her home in Portchester, Hampshire, this Sunday.
The family have planned a big fund-raising event that will run at the same time to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Care as well as Leukaemia and Lymphoma research.
Her 43-year-old mother, Amanda, added: "People often comment on the length of Aimee's hair."
"We'll be walking along the street and we will get comments. She's known at school as the girl with the long hair."
"At the moment her hair is quite unmanageable, especially when she goes swimming."
"She said that she really wanted to have her hair cut and she's really excited about it. She's been doing a countdown on her calendar."
"I keep thinking I am going to get really emotional when she gets it all cut off."
"I'm quite proud of her for doing it and excited as well."
