Meshell shaves head at 5pm today
Nova's Meshell Laurie is (as of 4pm today) one hour away from having her head partially shaved by co-host Marty Sheargold.
Laurie is shaving her head to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation and will have a number two blade crop this afternoon.
"I have wanted to shave my head for so long, I'm really excited" she said "I don’t know how my kids will react, but I’ve been really encouraged by the response I’ve gotten from people and I just hope I can raise a bit more money."
Sheargold will shave her head into the shape of a mohawk after 5pm today on Nova, and the remainder will be shaved off live on TEN's 'The Project' at around 6.40 tonight.
It is not particularly unusual for radio presenters to shave their head for this cause. It is, however, unusual for female radio presenters to do so.
