Locks of Love

As some of you know, my hair grows like weeds. I have estimated that it grows approximately 8-10 inches a year. This makes it financially difficult to keep cute short hairstyles. A couple years ago I decided that I'll just grow my hair out and donate it to a company called "Locks of Love" that makes wigs for children who have lost all of their hair due to health reasons. This is the second time that I have done this over the last 3 years and it feels great! It also helps that a really fancy schmancy salon in downtown Bellevue called "7 Salon" cuts your hair for free when you donate to "Locks of Love."
Now, I have liked all the short hair cuts that I have ever gotten thus far (with the exception of when I was 3-4 and got a boy cut). It's always a shock and for some odd reason all the stylists I have ever had except for one have insisted on fluffing my hair up as much as possible and then have the hair curl under so that I look like a freakin' mushroom. Last night was no exception and all I could think of was, "wow, I look like the mushroom monster on Mario Brothers." This syndrome will pass as soon as I wash my hair and style it myself. But, I couldn't resist snapping a picture of it last night.


  1. Wow!! Your hair is amazing, but you are even more amazing! I think I am going to do this too!! You know, I have the same "weed" on my head...

  2. Haha, you were right about the mushroom head. I liked it today when I saw it.
