I Finally Did It!

Wow! I finally got my haircut yesterday. They chopped off 10 inches (25.4 cm). I'm going to donate it to Locks of Love. This will be my third time in six years donating my hair. According to their website "Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 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."

This is my hair before they cut it

I think I look older with my hair shorter. I was scared at first, but it's nice to do something for a good cause.

Hi there! It has been a while. Very inspirational blog, I am so proud of you! I agree your short hair makes you look more "mature". *Melissa (Stevens)

You did look like you had second thoughts or were a little scared it'd be too short or something in the third picture but your hair looks nice :) .

Congratulations Jenni! Your cut & style enhance your eyes & smile. You are very beautiful. Kudos to your stylist.

I am glad you got the opportunity to donate your locks. Mine fell out before I could do that. Now I am the one wearing the long blonde wig.

It's a pleasure to meet you.
