NINE-year-old Sharnae Short loves her beautiful, long locks.
But that isn't stopping the self-proclaimed "girly girl" from going under the razor to raise money for charity.
On March 14, the Drewvale child will have her head shaved as part of the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave.
It is an act she has wanted to do since she was seven.
"There was a kid in my school who had Leukaemia who I want to help," she said.
"I'm a little nervous about the shave but also excited."
Sharnae's father, Ian Short, said he was proud of his brave daughter.
"I was surprised when she told us she wanted to do it," he said.
"But she has always been a very generous child. She always shares.
"I can see her doing a lot of good when she gets older."
The World's Greatest Shave is now the Leukaemia Foundation's biggest annual fundraiser.
The goal this year is to raise $4.5 million in Queensland and more than $15 million nation-wide.
Sharnae has already raised $300 with a target of $2000.
