11-Year-Old Cuts Hair Off to Support Her Bullied Sister

A young girl is going viral after selflessly cutting her waist-length hair in support of her younger sister, who was getting bullied at school for her own short ‘do. According to Yahoo! Beauty, 11-year-old Sarah Orrick visited a local salon last month after her younger sister Jorgia came home from school distraught because the boys in her class were making fun of her. The nine-year-old had recently swapped her waist-length hair for a shorter style, and was feeling insecure about the new cropped cut.

So, as Hue Salon hairstylist Noell Shore later explained, Sarah did something few other big sisters would do: She cut her own long blonde hair, in an attempt to help her sister feel more confident. The stylist told Yahoo! Beauty,

“I’ve known the girls’s mother Amy since elementary school, and she called me recently and asked if I would cut Sarah’s long hair….[Sarah] said she was ready for a change herself, and she wanted to defend Jorgia from the boys who were mean.”

The confident pre-teen, who Shore says “created the entire look,” opted for a cool asymmetrical cut with one side of her head buzzed, and the other cut to her jawline (think Scarlett Johansson circa 2015). Captioning a beautiful black-and-white “after” photo of the 11-year-old girl on Instagram, Shore wrote,

“And here is Sarah’s after! She said, ‘nobody bullies my little sister. And I don’t get why girls with short hair are made fun of.’ This girl is fierce and totally rocking her short hair!….Her younger sister was being bullied for her short hair, so Sarah cut hers to show her love and support! She’s so rad!”

We couldn’t agree more. Check out Sarah’s edgy new ‘do below
