    After 4 years of long hair, I'm cutting it.

    The original intention behind growing my hair out was to donate it to Locks of Love. Last week, I was interviewed by the school paper about it, and one of the questions was when am I going to cut it? Anyway, this week is homecoming week at my school, and we have different themes for each day. Tuesday is crazy hair day, so I'm getting it cut monday after school. I waltz into school with short hair, after 4 years of long hair, it'd shock everyone.

    I'm definately going to miss it, but I think it's time for a change.

    You can see current pics of me on my site (www.geocities.com/eric7string), and I'll be posting after pics sometime soon.
     
  2. Wow...your a brave person my friend.
     
  3. You gonna donate it to "Lockes of Love?" Thats what I did 5 years ago... (I had really long hair, like you wouldn't believe). Thats a great thing to do with a couple million strands of fiber that you can let go with.

    Could someone tell me what this Locks of Love thing is? It sounds like a probable cause.
     
  7. Will they except dreds?:D

    Cause once I'm 18, I'm getting them, and then when I get sick of them, off with the hair.

  10. It's a organziation that makes wigs for Cancer Patients, who lost their hair during the chemotherpy, out of Human hair donated. You have to have it a certain lentgh in order to donate it to the it though IIRC.

    Oooo, my brother had cancer when he was 11-13, so we try to help out all the cancer charities.


    And about dreds, i wouldnt get them, they smell nasty if you dont wash em for a day or so, and they are hard to wash too.

    That's not a good thing!

    Funny thing- a Christian rock singer/songwriter just dropped off his CD for me to learn... so I don't think the death metal look will be good for me. ;)

    Actually, I've gotten some color since then. Those pics are from January, and I've been working outside all summer.
     
  16. Well you had it for a good reason, are you going to donate it? If you do, then reason well kept. I have long hair and I'm never going to cut if off.
