Hairy.

It was a super busy weekend.
I can't believe it's Monday already. I'm gonna need extra sleep to make up for that one hour lost.
It might take 3 or 4 hours to make up for it.

The Girl and I have been ready to chop off our hair for a long time and this weekend was finally the time.

I've donated to Locks of Love 3 times before this, so this made my 4th.
It was The Girl's 1st. She loved it!

Before.


After.


There's still lots of time to enter the Miracles Happen giveaway below this post.
The Butterfly is a huge hit!

Happy Monday!

Have you ever donated your hair or known someone who was the recipient of a wig from Locks of Love?

Love it! the year i lost my mother to cancer i donated 17 inches and our daughter donted 8 inches. She has donted twice. And she loves that she can do something for someone else.

Julie said...

I haven't donated personally, but as a hairdresser I have done the cut on quite a few people who then donated! Love the shiny, fresh cuts!

I've donated 12 inches once and 8 inches another time :)

Danielle said...

I love the idea of locks of love but I can't ever get my hair that long. I'm so envious you can do it. I love it!

Colleen said...

Awesome! I can't donate my hair anywhere since it's more than 50% white, and the guidelines say the limit is 5%. But Joe donated his beautiful locks last January, and is an inch away from his next donation now. I think it is a great cause.

We're in mid-grow. Emma's (my six year old)ready to cut, but she asked me and my sister to do it with her. I've got at least 7 inches now and my sister is probably at 8. I'm hoping to get cuts for back to school in August (if not before!!) It's such a great thing to do. This is our first time.

Love your new cuts! How wonderful and what a blessing to donate to Locks of love. I hav had clients that have done this as well. I love sending their hair off.
Blessings

Angie Ochoa said...

Gorgeous girls! I wish my hair would grow long enough to do this, but it doesn't.

Lynn said...

You and your daughter are definately beautiful, both on the inside and out!! Such a kind, caring and thoughtful thing to do! My neighbor's across the street from me also donate their hair to Locks Of Love.. Doris and Steve.. They both have beautiful hair also, as you and your daughter both do.. Such beautiful and loving ♥'s you all have! You all are such a blessing for many!

Blessings,
~Lynn

You ladies are too cute!! It would take me a thousand years for my ridiculously fine (fine as in shrimpy-skinny, not *fine*), nordic hair to ever grow that long. I'm pretty sure I've never had that much hair in my entire life. You're my hair heroes, and what a blessing for the recipients :)

you both look lovely & such a good cause

My daughterI did several years ago and my sons girlfriend just did hers last week. She cut off 11" of beautiful black hair. I tried one time but I just couldn't make it. I got my necklace savor moments today and I love it. I plan on ordering a longer chain next time.
Blessings, Lori

Heather at Blessed Little Nest said...

like mother, like daughter!

Country Dreaming said...

Chad and Jody said...

So cute! you both look adorable. And what a great cause!

Jenni said...

i love that you did that together! what a special moment for you both, you must be a proud mama!

Kate said...

YOU ARE GORGEOUS!

You and your daughter are stunning! Someone will be truly blessed to receive those incredible locks! Your hair is quite literally your "crowning glory." AND I'm in love with the new do's!


ps. My sister and I grew out our hair together & donated it together. It was a pretty special thing to do. It is not only for a good cause but there is some serious bonding that occurs when you're sitting there saying "Are you ready?" (because deep down I knew I was unsure I wanted 12 inches chopped off...there is my own selfishness right there).

Kelly said...

I have wanted to but I have never gone through with it. Maybe that should be a goal for me this year.

The Stucky's said...

How lovely! Your daughter is such a little beauty. And what an awesome example of generousity and love you are modeling for her - such a cool thing to do together.

I've never donated to locks of love, but my mom did once. I'd love to donate someday, it is such a wonderful organization! My mom had to buy a wig when she went through chemo and they get so super expensive.

BARBIE said...

Lovely! I've never donated because I've never had hair long enough to donate.

Peggy said...

I have never donated because I colour my hair and apparently they wont take hair that is dyed. I have more than enough though. Congratulations for doing it.

My daughter grew her hair out and donated it in the name of a precious baby named Cora Paige...which is where I found you also ;)
