I've donated my hair three times so I guess that makes me kind of an expert! Ha! I thought I would show a few pictures from each time I donated and provide a little info about the organization I donated to.
Locks of Loves. I had it done live on the air during the Matty in the Morning Show on Kiss 108. The stylish was from a fancy salon on Newbury Street (sorry can't remember which one all these years later)! It was a fun experience and I guess I wasn't too traumatized b/c I did it again two years later. . .
Pantene Beautiful Lengths which only requires 8 inches. I can't recall exactly how much I donated but pretty sure it was more than 8. It was really fun doing it together.
"Cutting For a Cure" was born. This time I donated to Pink Heart Funds and had it cut by Halo Studio. I gave 8 inches this time. One great thing about this organization is that they take most types of hair including color treated hair. This time my hair had long layers and they accepted that too.
I think all three organizations are amazing. They make wigs for women and children w/ cancer and other medical problems for free! Have you ever donated your hair? Any other organizations out there I should know about?
Not sure if I'll ever donate my hair again. . . but we do plan to host Cutting For A Cure again next year so if you are in MA and would like to participate start growing your hair now!
