HUNDREDS of students chose to forego most of their lunchbreak and a gold coin to watch two very brave girls part with their most-prized possessions yesterday - their beautiful long hair.

Ariel Morrissey and Jodi Bowman, both 15, are now stars of the South Grafton High School yard.

At a time when self-consciousness is a nearly full-time occupation for many teenagers, these girls made a massive sacrifice to raise more than $3000 for the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave.
