Before & after
Locks of Love is basically an organization that collects donated hair to make hair prostheses (wigs) for children who are suffering from medical hair loss. It takes 3-4 people's worth of hair to make one prosthesis for a child in need. I really wanted to chop off my hair the day after my wedding, but decided to not waste my hair when a kiddo can use it. I waited for months & finally decided to cut it all off this past Saturday :)
My new hairdo!
I made an appointment at Hair Glamour & had Farzan cut my hair. I told her that I wanted to chop my hair off first to donate to Locks of Love before getting my hair cut & styled. She happily obliged & consulted with me about my new look, which turned out fab! This was the most I ever paid for a haircut ($45), but I didn't want some random person messing up my already short hair & Farzan was the girl for the job! I had my sister there documenting my mini journey since Vinh didn't want to see my hair being cut :P
You have no idea how liberating it was for me to chop the hair off! I have been waiting ages & now my head feels so light! I have also been getting many a compliment at work today *giggle*
Me with my hair donation
