It's iconic, it's Australian, it's the mullet.
Lithgow High School student Lachlan Porter, dyed his glorious locks hot pink on Thursday morning, July 2.
This wasn't just a spur decision for the 14-year-old, at the beginning of June, Lachlan came home to his mum Courtney Murray and said he wanted to be a "zero hero".
He had found out about June being Breast Cancer awareness month and decided he wanted to do something to raise money.
"Cancer is a cause that is close to our hearts, it has touched our lives a fair bit with some tragic outcomes," mother Courtney Murray said.
After signing up to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Lachlan was away.
"I asked if he wanted to shave his head but he said "no everyone does that, instead I want to colour my mullet pink"," Courtney said.
Lachlan originally told his Mum that he didn't want to set his goal as $1000, because he didn't think he would raise that much in a short amount of time.
"I thought, if you are going to colour your hair, you are going to set that goal of $1000 because it is a big deal," she said.
"He was at first a bit hesitant about setting his goal to $1000 but within days so many people got on to support him."
The cut off for donations was on Tuesday, July 1, and we are happy to report that Lachlan raised over $1200.
"He broke his record, he went over the amount and I am so beyond proud of him and I think he is a little proud of himself too, as he should be," she said.
COVID-19 did make fundraising hard for Lachlan but he was happy to get there in the end.
So with a trip to Bree Webb Hairdressing, and a few hours in the seat, Lachlan has come out with a new look, one that is going to catch everyone's attention.
"He is so grateful to everyone who has got onboard and supported him for this great cause and I'm a very proud mum as you can see by my smile [in the photos above]," she said.
