The last time Shian had her hair cut this short was college and believe it or not that was more than 15 years ago. So it goes without saying that this was a huge undertaking and was in the planning stages for the last 3 years.
During the past 3 years, every time we near the day that she would do it, we would always have a reason to not do it... "let's do it next year 'coz it's already winter" or the classic "Maybe my face will look bigger!" But this year was different. We've started to exercise more and eat healthier and we've lost a bunch of weight and that seems to be the push that we needed for her to finally go through with it.
The only thing that I can say is why didn't we do this sooner! It really turned out great and on top of that, we will be donating her hair to this wonderful organization called locks of love.
For those who are not familiar, Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
They have a few guidelines that you need to be aware of like the length of the hair should be at least 10 inches long, It should be stored in a braid or pony tail, etc. You could check out the rest here: http://www.locksoflove.org/donate.html
