Locks of Love

BEFORE:




AFTER:



Hello! Today, I got ten inches of my hair chopped off for Locks of Love. This is the second time that I have done Locks of Love and I would love to do Locks of Love as many times as possible! Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that creates wigs for children who have cancer. They use hair donated to them from people like me to make the wigs. You must donate at least 10 inches of hair in order for your hair to be used in a wig. Anyone thinking of doing Locks of Love or has anyone else done Locks of Love before?

Anyways, on to my outfit! I decided to wear my favorite pair of pants today- a pair high-rise pine green jeans from Urban Outfitters. I paired them with a new vintage hat and matching lipstick. A striped nautical Brenton top, gray oxfords, a masculine watch and a vintage bag completed the look. It was perfect for a day spent thrift shopping, going out to eat and getting my hair cut!

The first set of photos were taken in Anthill Antiques. Anthill Antiques is a great shop in Carytown that sells jewelry, vintage and more! The second set of photos were taken right outside of the salon where I got my hair cut, Irvis Salon. Because I was donating my hair, they cut my hair for free! Great deal, right?

High-rise jeans: Urban Outfitters
Striped top: Vintage
Oxfords: Forever 21
Bag: Vintage
Hat: Vintage
Watch: inherited from my grandfather

  21. BEFORE YOU SAY YOUR HAIR IS NOT LONG ENOUGH TO DONATE - Check out this website for information..
    http://www.locksoflove.org/donate.html

    This is the website I used to see what they would or would not accept... It's very helpful..
    I was going to cut 10" last yr but the lady at the shop said they would not take colored hair.. "NOT TRUE".. Made me So sad when I cut 7-8ins off and it went on the floor to the garbage.. When I got home & found this website, it really made me sick to know that much hair was wasted.. Check it out - Very Informative...

    http://www.locksoflove.org/donate.html

    Just sent 12" today... Cant wait till it's long again to send more...
