Locks Of Love Hair Cut - Before and After!

Yep, we really did it!

Here she is with her dripping wet long hair before the Locks of Love hair donation:

And, here she is with her new, cute, short "A Line" haircut after:

a line haircut Do you like? I happen to think she looks really cute with this new hairdo! And she is soooo excited about it. She's been wanting go get it cut for awhile, but I made her wait for a couple of weeks after she made the decision. I wanted her to be sure it was what she really wanted. Because you know, once it's cut.... it's cut!

My mom (the Princess's Grandma) passed away right before The Princess was born from cancer and we've talked about how she lost her hair and had to wear a wig. The Princess is also aware that some children suffer from hair loss and really wanted to help out another child. She wanted to help make someone happy. That is the main reason she wanted to do this.

I'm so disappointed in myself. I had our camera all ready to record the hair cut at the salon so that the Princess could watch it later. I had the perfect angle, sat there with the camera and filmed big moment (or so I thought) and then when I went to play it back, nothing was there. I must not have pushed the record button!! LAME

So unfortunately you won't get to watch the actual cutting. But, we made a "post hair cut interview" for your viewing pleasure instead.

Here's the Princess's thoughts on her new haircut and why she wanted to do it.....

Oh and one more thing.... I've been hearing some "stuff" about Locks of Love from various sources. I'll be posting on that topic next. I appreciate all of your feedback!

  1. she looks so cute! when i saw locks of love, I had to comment, because the other day at my school, there was a girl cutting everyone's hair, right in the middle of the hallway, for locks of love! it was crazy, pretty much everyone was doing it, without like telling their parents or anything... just getting their hair cut at school! But it looks really good! short hair will probably be the style now:)

  4. She looks fabulous! Her kind heart and spirit just make her that much prettier, too! I'm sure you are a very "Proud Mama"...as you should be <3. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love the hair cut, it's very cute. And how proud you must be of your princess for making such a big girl decision and being so selfless! When I was a bit younger I read a book by Margaret Peterson Haddix called Because of Anya. Anya is 10 and wears a wig and her new friend wants to know why...I won't tell the whole story but at the end was information about Locks of Love. Since reading that book I've been pretty passionate about the cause. I've donated my hair twice now, 12 inches the first time, and another 10 inches last May (still growing out now.) Congratulations to your Princess for her lovely hair cut and to you for having such a caring daughter!

  10. I really like the style and the motivation. And, dude, that hair is not short, there's still plenty you can do with it.

  11. I LOVE it! Her hair is beautiful and she looks so proud and perfect with it shorter. What an amazing gift!

    I look forward to seeing what styles you create with her shorter 'do!

  12. Not only do I think she looks fabulous, but I have to say that this is such a beautiful thing to do. My son is almost 5 years cancer free after being diagnosed with Leukemia. What she has done will not be unappreciated!

  13. It's adorable and still plenty long enough to do cute little braids and styles with. I think it's fantastic how she is helping a person that needs it. I have a friend who has alopecia and has no hair (anywhere on her body) and she has so much fun with wigs and the like. Most people don't even know she has it due to the high quality, real hair wigs thanks to kind people like y'all!

  17. So sweet! My favorite princess has always been Belle, because she wasn't born royalty, but became a princess because of her kind heart. Your princess definitely is a true princess, inside and out! She's amazing and she looks so cute with her new cut!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a great cut! And she's so awesome for donating to locks of love!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. She looks so grown up and cute with her hair that length, WAY CUTE!! I love it!! Way to go Princess!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love it! I'm also secretly excited because my princess also has an a-line haircut! I'm hoping you'll post some cute do's for short hair. Your princess is so thoughtful and kind. Donating your hair may seem like a small thing but it surely is no small thing to the person who will love your hair.

  25. yay! I just cut my daughter's hair short; I love short hair on her. The only reason I was keeping it long was because I was trying to do more hairstyles, but I finally gave up. Now hopefully I will see some short styles on this blog. Hooray!

  26. She is darling,.. seriously so cute! It is fun to see a little of her personality, something pictures just don't show. I love the cut, also! Very stylish and grown up looking! My Mother is going through Chemo for a 2nd time right now and just purchase 2 more wigs (for a total of 5 she owns). Tell princess that she is an angel to those of us who see first hand how important this act is. My Mom often feels so ugly and unlike herself and the wigs help her to keep going out and fighting the cancer that is threatening her life. WAY TO GO, Princess!

  27. Her haircut is adorable! What a wonderful thing to do! I'm excited to see what fun things you do with her hair!

  28. SO CUTE! What a girl! The only sad part about it is that she looks so grown up now. What happened to the little girl. Too bad they have to grow up. SO beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOVE IT!!!!
    I think I like it better with this style!! :) She looks adorable!!
    I'm anxious to see what hairstyles you will do with it shorter. My 7 yr old keeps telling me she wants it cut to her shoulders!! I think I'm the one who will miss it!!

  30. She looks beautiful! And what a sweet little soul making such a selfless decision all on her own. I'm sure she's made a huge difference in someone's life. My two year old just lost a few inches compliments of a self cut, and has shoulder length hair now so I'm excited to see what you come up with!

  31. She looks cute! Goose loved the feeling that she could help some little kiddo out back when she cut hers about 2 years ago. My aunt is fighting breast cancer for the 2nd time and she says she wants to grow it cut it this time so they can make her a wig! I love how giving and sweet children can be. Congrats on the new look.

  32. The new cut looks great on her! It looks so much thicker and healthier. It's still plenty long enough to do fun styles with too. Great job raising a daughter with such a kind heart!

  36. She looks so very cute. My daughter did the same thing last Friday. She had never had a haircut in almost 7 years, yet she wanted to cut her hair for Locks for Loves. My daughter also got an A-line cut. Can't wait to see what you will do with this!

  47. The hair cut is darling, and your little Princess is such a beautiful girl. She just emanates sweetness!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Princess looks adorable! And with her generous donation another child will have the same chance to look adorable too! My son did this 2 years ago (he was 35 & he has very wavy/curly hair) so it took a bit longer to grow.. I know several others who have done it too. I bet her hair will be back to that length by Christmas! Blessing!

  51. Super cute cut! I love that. My daughter chopped her own hair before it was long enough (and before she was old enough) to donate hers, but the end result is a similar length to your princess.
    I am excited to see what you can do with this length and lake look good and work right. Thanks for your posts!
