WHEN bathroom fitter Leigh Smith decided he wanted to do something different for charity he decided on a really hair-brained idea - a lizard haircut.

But the 33-year-old’s new look has been so popular he has already raised nearly £200 as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s Shave or Style campaign.

Leigh, from Dixon Close, Enfield, chose the charity after losing members of the family and the dad of a close friend to cancer.

The scaley design was the first lizard hairdresser Amy Fisher had tackled but she was delighted with the finished product - even though it needed Leigh to sit still for two

hours at Headless Cross barbers The Groom Room.

"It’s totally different to the normal cuts that I do and it was quite fun,” Amy said. “It was a one-off though - there will certainly be no more lizards."
