Locks of Love

This is the girl

who cut her hair (10 inches)
to give to locks of love.

She had it shaped and layered

to a style she loves

by a woman who knows her stuff.

This is a boy whose hair was long (but not long enough to donate to anything except a trashcan)

who wanted a mohawk. He's six. That should explain it. (No, it's not a real mohawk... but don't tell him that. He thinks it's really COOL.)

Seriously, if you don't know about Locks of Love, it is a wonderful program that provides hair prosthetics for financially disadvantaged children with long-term medical hair loss. Here's how it works: someone with long hair who is going to cut it short (cutting off at least 9 inches) specifies that they want it donated to Locks of Love. (You will need to find a salon that participates in this program.) There is no cost involved to donate it, and often the hair stylist will throw in a free styling cut as a way of thanks. If you think you would be interested, or have a child who would be interested, go to Locks of Love and find out more about it. It is an easy way to extend a hand of caring for those who really need it.
