A woman’s hair may be one of the most important aspects of her self-image. According to a British survey conducted by Tresemme, the average woman spends a staggering $50,000 on her hair over her lifetime. Every woman knows what it feels like to have a bad hair day. It just puts you in a less-than-awesome mood, but what about a no-hair-at-all day?
Unfortunately, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer and deal with treatments that can cause their hair to fall out in the process of killing the cancer. As a young woman who has a family history of breast and ovarian cancer, I felt the need to do something for the ladies out there who lose their hair in the face of a life-threatening disease. Having recently graduated from college, I decided that it was time to for a big change. I wanted to get an updated, polished and professional look by chopping off 10 inches of my hair to donate to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program.
And now for the before:
This isn’t the best picture, but I wanted to show off that I got TWO donations out of my big haircut. After asking literally every single person I know what salon to go to, I ended up at Frangipani Hair Studi0 with Brittani as my stylist. She gave me some very natural highlights and a much more manageable and professional style. I will definitely be going back to her!
