My sister-in-law, Laura, just got married last weekend in DC. Congrats Laura and Nate! She sent around some of the first wedding photos today (am still trying to get my hands on them to see if I can share) and also sent me a couple of photos of her post-wedding haircut. You see, her hair WAS almost down to her waist - gorgeous blond locks. She went for a Katie Holmes bob, cutting off a good 14 inches!!! to donate to Locks of Love, a non-profit that provides hairpieces to sick kids. My other sister-in-law, Sonya, who is a surgeon in DC and does A LOT of cancer surgeries, grew her hair out last year and also donated to Locks of Love.
If you have long hair and are looking for a new do, be sure to consider planning ahead a bit to make sure you cut it off correctly for donation. This is a GREAT program!
