Locks Of Love

Annie just gave a gift of Love.

She has been wanting to do this for a while. I talked her into waiting till after Senior pictures (in case she didn't love the results). The minimum length is 10 inches. Yeah, 10 inches! That gives them a good base for the wigs. Annie's "ponytail" was 14 inches, plus she had another 3 inches taken off to even out her new cut. That's 17 inches off.

This from a girl with her signature long hair. Always styled in different cool looks. She has always been brave to try new looks. I must say, I like the new style alot. It frames her face well. The huge smile doesn't hurt.

She has had several friends try to talk her out of cutting it. Her sister wanted extensions made for her instead of giving it away (JK). Annie will walk in to school tomorrow, and jaws will drop. Everyone will like it, but they will be shocked she had so much cut.

Annie is pleased with her results.

Somewhere out there, a little girl will be grateful for Annie's generous gift.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics.

Wow!!!!!! Loved the long hair, but when you are such a beauty, you can wear anything well.
What a lovely thing to do!
