14 inches!

I love my hair! I joke with  friends that taking care of my hair is a full time job. So what a better thing to donate than what I cherish so much!

A couple of month ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Carlos Franco at a photo shoot. Carlos is not only an amazing hair stylist but he is also a Cancer survivor. I was extremely lucky to squish in to his busy scheduled ( He is AMAZING) and have him cut and style my hair!

I choose to donate my hair to Locks of Love because of their amazing work with children who suffer from any type of medical hair loss.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 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. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

I love my new hair style, every fashionistas needs a style change now and then but what I love the most is that I was able to my little something to help some one feel beautiful!

  3. I see this as a trend where i work it was well wortveral have done it. many whom I never thought would go short did. I did the donation about a month ago of 12 inches in honor of friends with Cancer. It worth it and i will do it again. I had long hair for a long time and it was a big decision to make but I got compliments on the new look, layered, above the shoulders.
