Before I get to all the pictures, I just want to say that it is surprisingly simple to donate hair to be made into wigs. I decided on Beautiful Lengths because it provides free wigs for women with cancer. There are other great organization who specialize in making wigs for other groups, such as children and those with alopecia. I wanted to get my hair cut by a woman who runs a salon out of her home, but I wasn't sure if she needed to be registered or something. The truth is that anyone can send in hair. There are some requirements, such as having long hair (8-10 inches minimum), and it can't have been bleached. The requirements for Beautiful Lengths in the US can be found here.
And so, here is the photographic evidence...
Before... it was really long
Cutting of the ponytail... 10 inches!
Then, I put the hair in an envelope and mailed it off! (Tommy wrote the note)
Seriously, this was the easiest thing. I already wanted to get my hair cut, so I just decided to make it a little shorter and was able to help someone in the process. Ladies, get growing!
Oh and of course... I had to have a little photoshoot when I got home :-)
