Locks of Love and a new do...

This morning I woke up to the sound of rain and wind and thought what a perfect day to shake things up around here and get a new hairstyle!  I've been wanting to donate my hair to Locks of Love for awhile now, but just couldn't quite get the 10" minimum.  Today was going to be the day, so I whipped out my knitty tape measure and did a preliminary check - yep, my pony measured 10" pulled straight.  It's a go.

 Locks of Love is a wonderful organization that takes your donated hair to make wigs for financially disadvantaged children, age 21 and under, suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.  They also accept shorter links, so please take a moment to read their guidelines : Locks of Love Guidelines.  There are other ways to help. Visit the Other Ways to Help page on the website.

The first order of business was to find an awesome hairdresser in town and I found just that.  Jackie of Jackie's Family Hair Salon was so helpful.  In the past, I've seen some amazing haircuts on the happy customers coming out of her salon while I grabbed a coffee in the nearby coffeshop, so I knew it was the right place to go.  Jackie has cut her patrons hair to be donated many times and knew just what to do.  She also totally got my short hair needs and gave me a terrific cut, for which I'm grateful.  Thank you Jackie for easing me into the transition and for helping me make my wish come true.

Here we are at Jackie's Family Hair Salon (located in the shopping center...101 Marlboro Ave, Suite 55,  Easton, MD) Jackie is the owner and a super stylist.

Back home and ready for Sassytown - lol.  No more flat irons, bad hair days, and product overload.

I've enjoyed sharing this adventure with you today and hope you've found some inspiration to help you think of creative ways to help others in need.  We all have so much to give and receive in this season of gratitude.
