A Big Deal...

I recently decided it was time for a change in the hair department.  My hair grows very fast. Which in the past, I have much appreciated after bad cuts.

When my mom was going through chemo and radiation, I literally chopped my hair off.  Think Halle Berry-esque.  Not one of my greatest cuts or moments in my life.  Which is why I probably did it.

Fast forward to now...I have had my hair short twice in the past 10 years.  Then and now.  Except this time I am doing it for a cause.  For someone other than myself.  Yes.  I needed a change but I also wanted to do something in honor of my mom, since July is the month she passed away in.

After a couple extra months of growing my hair out, it was long enough to cut and donate to Locks of Love.  I may not love short hair on me, but I do love the fact that some little girl will be able to feel normal again with my hair.




And for the record, I do love this cut.  It is just so hard to get used to short hair.  I went to my mom's stylist,  who still cuts my sister's hair.  It just made the moment that much more special.

If you have ever thought of donating your hair, I highly recommend it.  It can help so many, who REALLY need it.  After all, it does grow back.

LOVE IT! I am finally growing my hair out long again after it being pretty sure (or short by my standards) for almost 2 years.

great new cut! I donated my hair in college, but have since colored my hair. I heard that once your hair is dyed it can't be used. Not sure if that is true. Glad you were able to make a difference.

That cut looks awesome on you! So jealous of a cute short hair cut.

Mine is crazy long (last cut in Nov), but I don't know if I'd meet the 10" requirement (I've looked)...my frizzy hair is what olds me back (if it's short, I have to do something with it).

So awesome of you to donate it.
