Hair Today Gone Tomorrow / Hair Donations

I may not have my own kids, but I am crazy for my nieces and nephews.  YAY!

two of my nieces - Jade and Kira

My 5-year old niece Jade has the most amazing hair (not to mention that she has PERSONALITY PLUS)! She recently decided to chop off her luscious locks, which made me a bit sad when I first heard about it. Yes, I am shallow like that --  sometimes.  LOL

But I love her knew short hairdo (sadly I don't have a great shot of the back -- it is even cuter than the front!), and I love that she is donating her chopped hair to someone in need.

1. your niece is GORGEOUS!

2. i've always wanted to donate to locks of love but my hair is way to fried and processed to do something like that. your niece's hair is pure and therefore healthy. i'm envious!

3. i love my niece and nephews too. related kids are way better, er i mean different from unrelated kids :)

Aww that's so sweet! They are absolutely stunning! And why don't I have that hair either? Geez! Gorgeous! No one would want my donated crispy hair but I'll pass on the word to my friends

Trixie said...

Wait...she's FIVE?

Lynn said...

What a beautiful, generous child!
I grow hair really well. I grow it for Locks of Love. My hair fixer-person calls me a hair farmer!

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

i've donated my hair once before. so if you see a ratty old, fried up "real hair" wig laying around somewhere, it's probably mine.

i love that your neice is only five and decided to do that. what a thoughtful child. <3

Beautiful hair and beautiful girls!
Maybe someday I will actually get up the nerve to do this instead of just thinking about it. I'm pretty much the perfect candidate since my hair is untouched and grows pretty fast. I think I would hate (HATE) short hair, so that's a bit of a block...

Morgan said...

HOLY ADORABLE!!!! She couldn't be cuter!!!!

SabinePsynopsis said...

She's a star! (and I bet she got her beauty genes from you) We still have pictures of my sister cutting of her long, long hair and everyone (her included) standing around crying...

Isabel said...

Lorena said...

What a sweet thing to do!
When I was her age I would not have cut my hair for anything! Yes, I am too that shallow.

Kimbirdy said...

My sister cut her's off to donate a few years ago... actually the hairdresser let ME cut off her ponytail...her hair was so long she could sit on it!!

OMG! I love her hair. My niece is 4 and has long hair like that. I would cry if she cut it. Even though it's for a good cause I'd still cry. I'm a wuss. LOL
