If you have been with us from day 1, you probably know that the girls have cut their hair and donated it to Locks of Love. In fact, just a couple months before we started this blog, Goose cut over a foot off her hair – but because it was before we started blogging we’ve never really shown her “before” pictures. The very first hairstyle I ever posted was with her long hair. All the other hairstyles we’ve posted were post hair cut. Now 5 years later, her hair had grown a lot and there was a choice to be made. We’ve been keeping a secret for a couple months now and it’s finally time to share!
She’s to the point where she is starting to do her own hair some days and I wanted her to have enough to work with. Last time she got her hair cut off to her shoulders and we barely could pull it into a ponytail. I had suggested just getting a “healthy trim” but she didn’t want to. She saw this little picture that has floated around the internet for a few years and she was even more determined to be able to donate her hair again.
Her hair was over 30 inches long from her center part and so she had a decision to make on how much to cut. She still wanted to have long enough hair to do herself, so she didn’t cut as much off this time as last time. But I’m so proud of her for the selfless act she did in cutting it again.
So here’s the little video “diary” I put together showing the haircut and a few pictures from the past. Hope you enjoy it. I’m so proud of Goose!
I know there are several places you can donate your hair if you cut it, but we have chosen Locks of Love to send it to. For more information you can see their website HERE.
We’ve been enjoying Goose’s shorter hair and are excited to show you some of the new styles we’ve done with her newer hair. It’s also been a lot more manageable for her as she’s been doing her own hair too. She has rather thick hair and with it being so long it was almost becoming a bit cumbersome for her. So we’re excited with her new look & we love it!
