DAYS are numbered for the feminine locks of Amanda Wust and Nicole Constable before they take part in the World's Greatest Shave on March 24.

The two women work at The Capricornian and having both known people affected by blood cancer, they decided it was time for them to take the chop.

Amanda, who is going to shave her hair as short as possible, lost a cousin to leukeamia only a couple of months ago, so it's a cause close to her heart.

"I've always wanted to do it and now has just been a great time to do it for myself," she said.

"He'd be really proud of what's happening and grateful for raising the money to help families going through what he went through."

The two women have a goal of $2500, and Amanda said they were well on their way with support from friends and family, raffles at work and a sausage sizzle.
