Locks of Love

On April 30th 2008, Austin shaved his head.  Then he swore he wouldn't to get a hair cut for a whole year.

A year went by...
Then two years... 
Almost three years later, he had still never gotten more than a trim.

We measured his hair a few nights ago and realized that his ponytail had surpassed the 10" minimum.  So last night, he finally got his hair cut to donate to Locks of Love!

Locks of Love is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
If you're interested in joining the cause, here are a few of the guidelines for donating hair:
  • Hair must be gathered in a ponytail
  • Minimum length of 10" from tip to tip
  • Colored or permed hair is accepted
  • Bleached or highlighted hair is not accepted
  • Dreadlocks are not accepted  
A very lucky recipient will be happy to wear his curly hair!

And I'm just happy he got a hair cut :)
