I’m re-posting this from about 7 years ago. I feel this is an important cause. Please call your Great Clips and make sure they are participating before you head over there.

Free Haircut with Hair Donation to Locks of Love
If you are planning on donating your hair to Locks of Love, Great Clips will give you a free haircut. Great Clips has over 2,800 salons. Locate a salon near you or look for this decal sticker in the salon window.
Almost 2 years ago I decided to donate my hair. For most of my life, I had long hair. I was ready for a change and wanted to do something good. Unfortunately, I couldn’t donate to Locks of Love, but I did find another organization that would take my dyed hair.
Little did I know, I’d be bald from chemo a little over a year later. I’m glad I donated when I could.
Kim’s (of Kim’s Shopping Blog) daughter donated 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love. You can see pics on her blog. Great Clips gave her a free haircut!
I encourage you to do this at least once in your life. I used to be so into my hair. I’d spend so much time on it. It’s really freeing when you cut it short. I realized after donating my hair and losing all of it to chemo, how minor hair is in relation to other things in life.
What is Locks of Love?
It’s a public non-profit that gives hairpieces to financially disadvantaged kids that suffer from long-term medical hair loss.
