Locks of Love
What an amazing girl we have! She decided to donate her beautiful long red locks to Locks of Love. A couple of years ago Atira had a friend who has alopecia and that was when she first learned about the company that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair for various reasons. She did not grow her hair out with the intent of donating it but rather she wanted to be able to flip her head over and have her hair cover her face to look something like Cousin It.
Although to be honest that is not where she got the idea from it originated with the show Full House where DJ puts her hair over her face because she has a zit on her nose and she is trying to cover it. Ah, the places we find inspiration! Anyway, it led to several years of growing out that beautiful head of hair and after hearing about one of our friends plans to donate hair, Atira decided it was what she wanted to do. (But just prior to that, she had heard of being able to sell hair and tossed that idea around a bit too). So, in the end the hair is being sent off to LOL and we all love her new short hairstyle!
