Pantene Beautiful Lengths

 Our Story

I've been growing my hair for quite awhile now.  Besides getting the occasional trim, I can't remember the last time I really got my hair cut.  Anyways, years ago I cut ten inches off my hair and donated it to Locks of Love. Locks of Love creates hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children who have cancer.  I had planned on going through this organization again, but recently found a different organization a little closer to my heart.  Pantene Beautiful Lengths creates hair pieces and gives them for FREE to women with cancer.  After finding out my friend's sister was diagnosed breast cancer and following her story I knew I wanted to donate to Pantene's cause.  You can follow Leanne's story here.

The requirement was a minimum of 8 inches and I think we took between 8 and 9 inches.  After I got it cut, it felt so light and bouncy!  I forgot to have the stylist take a picture when we were done, so I had Brandon snap a picture of the back when we got home.

So on October 9, almost one year to the day after Leanne was diagnosed with breast cancer, I cut and donated my hair in her honor.


  1. What a beautiful and selfless gift. I bet it looks great on you! Hope you all are well.

  2. GOOD ONE! You and your new look are adorable. :)

  3. Kelly, this is such an amazing show of your love and support of Leanne and her cancer journey. Thank you so much.
    Love, Chris & Fran

  4. Thanks for the info on this organization. My sister has donated to Locks of Love at least 3 times, quite likely more. I've tried numerous times...but can't make it. Maybe I can handle an additional 8 inches. Bring on the challenge. :)
