Two Dubbo Showgirls have raised at least $7000 for charity by lopping off their locks.
Tyla Comerford and Rose Broughton are sporting shorter hairdos to benefit Variety Australia.
Their long tresses will be sent to the charity to contribute to wigs for children who don't have hair, Miss Comerford said.
The pair were thrilled at the support they received as they took a deep breath and submitted to the scissors on Saturday night in front of a large crowd at the Pastoral Hotel.
The Dubbo Show Society, an organisation they've each been part of for a number of years, is also set to benefit from the fundraiser.
Miss Comerford came up with the idea, deciding she had "more than enough hair" and because it was undyed and made the 40cm requirement it was suited to the purpose.
Doing her research she learnt Variety Australia had helped 14 families in the Dubbo area in the past 12 months alone, Miss Comerford said.

The 2017 Dubbo Showgirl Rose Broughton had teamed up with Miss Comerford, the current titleholder, to double the hair donation.
Miss Comerford said they were still counting donations on Sunday, but had made at least $7000 for charity.
"We're overwhelmed with how the night went," she said.
"It was better than we could have imagined and the support has been incredible."
The honours to cut their hair was auctioned, with family securing the task.
Miss Comerford said her brother cut hers, and he did it too short.
"My hairdresser Lyndall Cohen, who's been cutting my hair since I was eight years old, styled it after family hacked at it," she said.
Food At Yours, the Westview Drive-In and the Pastoral Hotel donated prizes on the night.
It's a big month for Miss Comerford, who will be judged at the zone finals for the right to contest the title of The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl this year.
She said she was looking forward to the event, connecting with the other 21 contenders in the zone and having the personal development opportunity.
Dubbo is hosting the zone final, and tickets are on sale for the ball on February 22, part of the judging and where the finalists will be announced.
