Ms Richardson, who works at Deja-vu Hair & Body in Neerim South, shaved her head to raise money for Ronald McDonald house.
“Erin likes Ronald McDonald House [so] she thought she would raise money for the cause,” hairdresser manager Christie Black told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
Ronald McDonald House provides help to seriously ill children and their families.
Ms Richardson’s shave raised over $1,000 for the support service.
Ms Black said the community response to the event was good.
“Members of the community donated money for months in the lead-up to Erin’s shave,” she said.
“We also had people coming in and out of the salon.”
One in eight Australians have been helped by Ronald McDonald House or know someone who has used their programs.
