Donating Hair, Raising Awareness

Photo Contributed

— Junior Girl Scout Troop 4143, of Alexandria, hosted a hair donation event recently. Out of 24 girls in the troop, four donated their hair for this event and they raised so much awareness in the community that seven other girls plus one adult volunteered to donate their hair. In total, there were 12 ponytails donated at the event to benefit Pantene Beautiful Lengths which partners with the American Cancer Society. Hair donations are turned into free, real-hair wigs for women and children with cancer. Windsor of Old Town hair styling salon, formerly Lords & Ladies Salon, in Alexandria, opened up their shop and donated their styling services for this event.
