Help the victims of family violence by booking a room for someone you’ll never meet, in a place you’ll hopefully never visit.

Let’s Give a little. This is a weird time for all of us – we’re all experiencing such uncertainty about Joe Exotic. Being stuck indoors with Drew and the kids is predictably untenable. Apart from the complete lack of decorum, I could want for nothing – from eating the output of Drew’s attempts to be NZ’s hottest home baker and having video meetings in my plush dressing gown, but I can’t stop thinking about how tough this must be for the many vulnerable women and children in our country right now. I wanted to do something positive that would support these women. Girl interrupted, I thought how about I shave my head? If Britney can do it, why can’t I? Hopefully, this questionable reasoning prompts you guys to chip in so we can book a ‘Safe Night’ anywhere in New Zealand for the people who really need it through Womens Refuge NZ. If we come together, we could really make this time easier for women and kids who need safety right now more than ever. So, you with me? If you can spare a small donation, everything raised will go directly to Women’s Refuge.

Sharing my hairstory

I have been loyal to my haircut for at least 10 years. I adhere to a strict personal rule of “all the same length” (v. crucial) with a blunt fringe. Recently, I went way too long between cuts, and my hair got really long, so I decided to shake things up and broke all my own rules. I was going for like an Alexa Chung vibe — I ended up looking more like Cher. ⁠

I’ve been through my fair share of questionable haircuts – the Little Jase (my nickname at Karori Normal for a time when my brother and I got matching haircuts (but we don’t have the time to unpack that now). My Alanis Morrissette, Jagged Little Pill forever. My multitude of Don’t Go Light on the Ribbons and Clips. My Can I Please Keep My Braids in for the Disco. My I Think This Side Part Really Suits Me (or what Ray-Ray affectionately refers to as my Indian Barbie look). My ‘By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers’ tour look. It’s been a wild ride.
