IT is unusual for a hairdresser to have the same hairstyle for four years but Sabrina Davies does not have much choice for a change.

Not only does the mother of two make people look good for a living, but she also makes them feel good by fronting Perth Pink tribute act PINked.

Davies has been dressing up as the American singer-songwriter and performing her catalogue of hits for the past four years.

“The band happened by accident… someone suggested we do a Pink tribute show because I looked a little bit like her and have her attitude,” Davies said.

“I was about 16 when she released her Missundaztood album which really resonated with me and all her music makes me feel like she’s singing about my life.

“I genuinely love singing her songs so we gave it a go with no expectations and it’s been crazy and wonderful.”

PINked topped an online social media poll posted by Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) as the preferred act to play at the charity’s Family Night Out concert at Perth Zoo on Saturday, March 18.

The event will raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research with zoo access from 3pm, children’s activities, barbecue and family-friendly PINked concert from 6-9pm.

“Obviously I have a huge soft spot for kids and have been lucky enough to not be affected by any kind of cancers so far,” Davies said.

“There will be a lot of families there who have been affected by childhood cancer and I think for them to be able to have a bit of a release for a couple of hours, to forget what they’re going through, to be able to provide that is special.

“It will be a PG version of our show with lot of crowd interaction, dancing and all the hits Pink’s had to date.

“My kids can’t wait.”
