Ruler-hair-scissors :: V-Day giftie from MK

Yesterday, I asked MK what she wanted to do for Valentine's Day.
She said she wanted to cut off her hair...

...and give it away.

It was getting to be a pretty good crop after a couple of years.
When she was 7 years old, this is what she set out to do after all.

Warmer weather is coming soon.
Okay, that sealed it.

We checked out different places to make a donation and decided on either Locks of Love or Beautiful Lengths.

Today, I armed myself with "a" pair of scissors

and started chopping.

MK was so excited!

This is about where my trusty hair scissors broke.

So, Mikey found "b" pair of hair scissors so I could finish the job.

11 inches!

MK liked how the cut end felt--so thick, nice, and very soft.

For a second there, I started wondering how many excellent make up brushes this thatch could make. Oh, never mind. (I think they would be divine though...)

A thoughtful donation from a 9 year old.

A new 'do!

A sweet girl giving away a bit o' love!

What a wonderful thing she did! I can't believe how long her hair had gotten! Can't wait to see her- and ALL of you in just a couple weeks!

That is such a thoughtful thing for MK to do, and she looks great with her new hairdo!

I have been growing out my hair for the same purpose. It's long enough to cut now, but with the cold weather we've been having, I just haven't done it yet. I know about Locks of Love, but I have never heard about Beautiful Lengths. I'll have to check into it to see which one to donate to when the time comes.

Wow! What an inspiring choice she made (for a 9-year-old or an any-year-old), and what beautiful hair to donate (and love that you thought it would make excellent make-up brushes! Ha!). She looks great, and -- for the record -- I love that sassy shirt! :)
