Hair Today...



...GONE tomorrow.



We wanted to take a moment to pause and document Emma's long hair. She has been growing it out for the last 2 years, I can't remember the last time she got it cut. She started growing her hair out for ballet so that it was long enough to wear in a bun. Well, that turned into "maybe I should grow it out for Locks of Love". That is exactly what she has done. The problem is...in the process she has grown quite attached(no pun intended :) ) to her long hair. In some ways I think it will be hard for her to see it go, but in others ways, it will make life easier. For one, it will be a LOT cooler in the Oklahoma sun without all that hair. Tomorrow is the big day, she is donating at least ten inches. I am so proud her, she is really excited to donate her hair and be able to help someone else.

Here is a picture a friend of mine took last week after she flat ironed her hair. I will post her "new look" tomorrow. I know she will look adorable.

Wow! Your hair is so long!! I think it is great that you are donating it. I know it won't be easy (If you rememeber I used to have really long hair) but when you think about how happy you will make someone else who is in need it makes it worth it. Plus, it grows back. I'm proud of you. Can't wait to see pictures! You are abeautiful young lady.

I forgot to mention some salons cut your hair for free if you are donating it to locks of love. You might want to call around. FYI, not all salons donate it for you so you have to make sure the place your going does if not you have to take it home and put it in the freezer until you send it in.

What a big heart Emma! That is a very great gift you'll be giving someone. My aunt had cancer and she would have loved to have your hair! Can't wait to see the new look.
