Mario Falcone has received a HUGE thumbs up from us after making a very kind charity gesture.
‘The Only Way Is Essex’s’ Mario has been growing his hair for several months now and finally had it all chopped off on Tuesday (21 March).
But it is the motive behind this that has won him praise from us, as he did it all so he could donate his tresses to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs for children with hair loss.
Showing off his new ‘do on Instagram, and more importantly his certificate from the charity, Mario commented: “New hair do and my donation certificate.”
Fans have been quick to give Mario a pat on the back for his efforts, with one saying: “Such an amazing thing to do @mario_falcone17 well done :).”
Another added: “There was a meme earlier saying there is absolutely no reason for a man to have a bun – but this is an amazing reason.”
Mario began growing his hair last year but was forced to explain in November the reason behind his new look.
The star returned to ‘TOWIE’ for a cameo appearance but he was quick to preempt some not so nice comments about his long locks.
At the time, Mario tweeted: “I am on tonight’s Towie finale… Before some of you make nasty comments about my long locks of hair… Remember I am growing it out so I can donate it to the Little Princess Trust next year.
“So please be nice as I am doing something nice.”
Since revealing his new haircut, the Little Princess Trust has been quick to thank him for his kind gesture.
The charity tweeted: “Looking gorgeous, @Mario_Falcone! Thanks a million #littleprincesstrust.”
