Farmer Wants A Wife’s Henrietta Moore had her head shaved on Saturday as part of the World’s Greatest Shave, raising money and awareness for the Leukaemia Foundation.
The reality star did an Instagram Live as she said goodbye to her long brunette locks, while thanking her followers for donating and supporting her shave.
Speaking to The Wash last month, Henrietta said that not only did she want to raise money by taking part in the Shave For A Cure event – she also wanted to inspire people.

Here’s what Henriette told us:
‘There is nothing more unjust or unfair as the taking of the innocent in this world; the children. I’m hoping that by completing ‘Shave For A Cure’ I will raise a target of $10,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. My intention is to also inspire hope within those who are going through the trauma of having to lose their hair, on top of their courageous battle with this vicious disease. Also women have responded really positively to the other message within shaving my head, and that is letting go of my pride, ego and ability to be objectified. I felt incredibly sexualised and objectified on the series. When I was younger I had an eating disorder because I had severe issues with the way I look and how I felt about myself. The bulimia went on for nearly 10 years, because I let myself take my self-worth from how I looked on the exterior. I work as a teacher and I see these girls every single day struggle with their image especially because of the pressures of social media. Their insecurities are getting worse. I want them to have a role model of someone with confidence, and I know girls look up to me and I want to tell these girls that you are so much more than what you look like, it comes from within.’
