Locks of Love

I have been growing my hair out for Locks of Love for over a year now and I was finally ready to have it cut and make my donation!  I was excited because for months I had been wearing my hair in a ponytail.  I do not have great hair-do skills, so that was pretty much my only option.  My friend and stylist Rob of Elements Salon got to do the honors.  My sister and nieces were in town so they came with me to watch the chopping of what I thought was going to be one big ponytail.  Rob said that it is easier to cut in several smaller tails and it would also separate out the front which was layered and not 10 inches long.  Good to know!

Rob was fast and my sister had trouble keeping up.  This last picture was posed...thanks Rob.  Donating my hair to Locks of Love is something I had always wanted to do, so check!  It is a great feeling to be able to donate and I have only one regret.  I wish I knew I wanted my hair cut as short as I ended up having it cut before the chopping...I could have probably given another inch or two.

After the initial chop...hi Rob in the background!

Growing your hair for Locks of Love means no highlights.  They accept colored hair as long as it hasn't been lightened or colored over lightened hair.  I had grown out my previous highlights before starting to grow my hair for donation.
So guess what!?

My final style is flippy and fun, as requested and I went all the way to chin length!  I originally thought I wanted to stay close to shoulder length.  I haven't had my hair this short in YEARS!!  Very fun.
