With the coronavirus lockdown in full swing, one thing many people are struggling with is overgrown hair - James Arthur is no different, and has shared how he shaved his hair off in “a moment of madness”.
But the big-hearted singer used the inadvertent new style, which started off meaning to be just “a trim”, to donate £5,000 to the NHS.
Arthur isn’t the first celeb to shave their hair off during lockdown in what is being called the Covhead challenge - which sees stars cut all their hair off and donate to money to the NHS.
Sharing a selfie of his new look on social media, the former X Factor contestant explained how he tried to cut his hair himself but it all went wrong which lead to him just taking it all off.
He wrote: “So I was trying to give my self a little trim up in a state of pure cabin fever, it wasn’t going so well so In a moment of sheer madness I decided to do something I’ve never dared to do before and shave my head for the NHS and donate 5k.
