I cut my hair!
Locks of Love helps disadvantaged children suffering from medical hair loss by creating high quality wigs out of donated ponytails.
Marie’s makes the process of a relatively big change of hair length (donations must be at least ten inches) as easy as possible.
Here’s how it went down:
1) Diana brought me tea, checked to make sure that I was calm, comfortable, and committed, made a ponytail, measured my hair, and…
3) Short hair!
She also packaged the hair and mailed it off to Locks and Love for me.
All I had to do was grow my hair for a year+, commit to the cut, enjoy a luxurious shampoo and condition (complete with a head massage!), pick out a hairstyle, and skip out the door feeling light and airy (getting rid of ten inches’ll do that) and like I did something nice for someone!
Thank you Maries and Locks of Love!
I miss my mane (as my husband calls it) but the short hair feels great and I’m really happy I did it.
Here’s the before and after:
And here’s the mane in all its former glory – good-bye wild and crazy hair (at least for a while) I will miss you but hopefully you’ll help someone else have big hair:
Have you ever switched up your look for a good cause?
