Great cause but looks like its long enough now to cut for locks of love! In a month it will hopefully be even longer…

I would casually mention it…see his reaction…

Locks of love needs 12 inches, he’d be fine to cut it now!! Maybe just casually mention it, if you point out that no matter when he cuts it from here to then it wills till be giving someone a wig. Same out come. They won’t be able to make 2 wigs if he gorws it any longer.

Tell him great cause! And bless his heart for doing something like it!

Even if the hair is less than 12 inches, they will still accept anything as long as it is a minimum of 6 inches….if it is 6-10 inches, they will sell the hair, and the profits will go towards locks of love costs.

I think he is doing something really great….not many guys would grow their hair out just for charity.  And not many women can because a lot of us color it.  Just look at it like it is – he is doing something really and truly thoughtful.  Be happy you have such a great guy.  ANd should he not be ready to cut it in a month (though by the looks of it he should hav emore than enough by then), you will look back at your engagement pics and remember what a great thing he did.  At least he is going to cut it for the wedding.

i agree with dreambml- he sounds like a great guy and you should be so proud of him! do your engagement photos with his long hair & in your wedding pics he’ll have short hair! what a great reminder of the cool thing he did- everyone you show the pics to (from now until forever) will say, wow! look at his hair! and you can tell them why it was so long (and maybe give a shout out to the organization as well & inspire others). funny thing is, my dad had SUPER long hippy hair/beard in my parents engagement pic & i think it’s SO cool. not as cool as donating it, but it’s like a time capsule of where he was as a young, engaged loving guy.  sorry if this isnt the answer you want- i just think it’s so cool!

Why don’t you get matching updoos for the engagement pictures? 😉  (Kidding!)  He has nice hair, but it is kind of neat to have it cut on the wedding day.  I’d let him keep it long for now and then cut it on the day – it’ll be a neat surprise for everyone.   And what a sweet guy you have!

He has gorgeous hair!  And I agree, it is a very cool thing to do.  I have a girlfriend who has done it five times now… mine never really gets much past my shoulders no matter if I don’t cut it.  I also would go ahead and let him keep it for the e-photos.  Trust me, when he’s old and losing it, you will miss that hair!  And it will be a reminder of what a big heart he has, although I’m sure you see that all the time!

I think it would be way more fun for him to cut it the night before/morning of the wedding – super suprise for everyone on the day!

Everyone’s expecting to gasp at the bride’s appearance, why not let your groom have a bit of that fun too? (they’ll still gasp at you!)

 Only thing is: I always go into shock for a few days after my boy has his haircut (he lets it grow to a couple of inches long and then we shear it off short but not bald). It would be weird to have that "who are you?" feeling on the wedding day. Though I’d guess a lot of grooms end up feeling that way with all the stuff we do to beautify ourselves beforehand 😛
