Now you see it....

Now you don't...
My Sweetie Pie has been letting her hair grow long since last year from a little below shoulders-length. With the hot season almost upon us, we decided that it's time to get her hair cut. However, it is not any regular haircut.... she will be donating her hair to Wigs for Kids, and it's also her first time at a beauty salon. I had always trimmed her hair for her at home. Look at how much was taken off... almost 15"! Wigs for Kids requires at least 12" long.
Even after all that was taken off, the hair stylist took off another 1" to 2" of her hair during the final haircut.
I'm very proud of our Sweetie Pie! She always had long hair up to this point and did not want to get her hair cut THAT short. But she would do it to help out kids who had lost their hair due to illnesses or treatments. What's great about all of this, is that Girl Scouts partnered with Wigs for Kids to help spread the word. Sweetie Pie will receive a patch for her donation. Here she is with her new look. She looks so cute and grown up!

Good for her. I think her new hair cut looks great and she must love the feeling of lightness after losing so much hair.

She looks wonderful with her shorter hair. And it'll be much cooler in summer, that's for sure.

I meant to comment previously, but was having computer problems. Your daughter looks very cute with her new do, and it was so sweet and mature of her to sacrifice for less fortunate children.

The new hairstyle is very flattering and what a good cause - good for her.

What an unselfish thing for your daughter to do. She's a beautiful girl inside and out.
