@Oribel013690: I’m curious about your information regarding Locks of Love–I’ve never heard that (and it’s a pretty serious allegation). Do you have any research or investigative news article about what they do with the hair? I donated my hair to them about 4 years ago.

selling your hair is an interesting idea though! (were you concerned about having shorter hair for the wedding?)

Some information on Locks of Love from Wikipedia:  “According to a 2003 report by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, in 2002 alone Locks of Love had raised over $150,000 by selling donated hair and had received another $213,000 in charitable contributions and grants, but provided only 113 human-hair wigs. Their 2008 IRS Form 990 reported over $1,925,000 in total revenue but stated that they gave only 401 hairpieces / wigs to Locks of Love recipients.”

That is seriously amazing, but I think I am one of the few brides on here with long hair because I actually LIKE my hair long and wear it this way all the time with or without a wedding in my future. I will not do a PWC! It grows kind of slow, too, and I don’t think I could part with it, not even for $1700! All in all, though, that is pretty helpful, and I’m glad you shared it!

Interesting.

I plan on cutting 12 or so inches off the day after my wedding (can’t wait!)

I usually (every 2 years) donate to “Angel Hair for Kids” http://www.acvf.ca/index.php/our-programs/angel-hair-for-kids/

 

But selling it isn’t something I ever thought of. It’s super beyond crazy super thick and they called to say how my ponytail is like receiving 2-3 in one!

I’m disappointed to hear that about Locks of Love, because I donated my 10″ hair to them around 2000.

@cartascartas: Don’t cut your hair! I have waist length hair and girls are always stopping me in the most random places (bookstore, street, festivals etc) telling me NOT to cut it– because they used to have hair as long as mine and they miss it and it takes forever to grow back. Get a short hair wig if he wants to see what you would look like with short hair ๐Ÿ˜›
