Like most of us, NSW Opposition Leader Chris Minns had grown some shaggy locks during the lockdown.
Barber Sam Moustafa lopped off Minns' mullett on Monday and some money was raised for charity at the same time.
Mr Minns, who was gently ribbed about his mullet by the press pack on Sunday, said he was pleased to raise money for charity.
"Thank you to everyone who donated. I started out intending to raise $1000 for Rev Bill Crews' Exodus Foundation and we've now hit $7000," he said.
"Rev Crews and his team of volunteers work tirelessly 365 days a year helping vulnerable people, so I'm stoked to be able to lend a hand and raise money for a worthy cause."
Mr Minns asked the public to be patient with hairdressers, retail workers and all of those who would be dealing with keen customers over the coming weeks after it was revealed the state government would not have its vaccination passport app ready this week.
The vaccination passport should allow people to simultaneously check in to a venue and confirm their vaccination status.
"One of the things that I want to say unambiguously today is that no one will believe that you're a hero if you abuse a 15-year-old girl working in a retail supermarket," he said.
"So we're calling for calm this week, we're calling for people to show common sense, to stick up for retail workers, to say to all of the people who own restaurants, bars, cafes, or work in Coles or Woolworths, that they deserve respect, and we thank them for battling through the last 16 weeks.
"We would have loved the vaccine passport to be up and running, but that's not going to be the case. So respect, decency and common sense are the order of the day as we get through the next couple of months in Sydney and New South Wales."
