Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, known for his long, fiery red locks as much as for his skill on the slope, has cut his hair off for charity, and is now sporting a dramatically different look.

The Californian-born two time gold medalist recorded the moment and uploaded it to YouTube in a video entitled It's Only Hair.

In the video we see White heading to the salon for his hair cut, where he muses: "I've been thinking about this one for a while, but it's for a good cause so I want to do it...somebody needs it more than I do."

Entering the salon, the star snowboarder explains that he wants to donate his cut hair to charity. Viewers get to see the moment that White's pony tail gets cut off as he laughs anxiously, saying: "I did it for you Locks of Love."

Thankfully, though, White - who holds the record for the highest score in the men's half pipe at the Winter Olympics - seems pretty pleased with the end result, adding with a smile: "I hope [Locks of Love] accept it!"

Locks of Love provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the US and Canada, who are under the age of 21, and who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. On their website, the charity states that it hopes to: "Return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilising donated ponytails."
