I heard on the radio yesterday that diPietro Todd Salon is having a promotion with Locks of Love and the makers of Rogaine where if you donate at least 10 inches of hair, you’ll get a free salon-style hair cut. Since the wedding is coming up, I can’t pass up on this opportunity!
I had first heard about Locks of Love a few months back while looking for sites where I could donate or sell my hair. The company is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 18 years and younger suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
Readers, I need your help in deciding a new hairstyle!
I’ll still have enough hair to style in a new way even after donating ten inches. As you can see in my musings on hair, I have had short hair, no hair, long hair, and even cornrows! I didn’t start experimenting with my hair until college, whereupon I shed my short hair in favor of more longish locks. Junior year, I shaved my head for the first time in Synergy of all places. After growing it out for a little while, I shaved it again sometime in 1999 and again in 2000. Since 2001, however, it’s been long, and today, it’s really long!
I used to be enamoured by Tom Cruise’s long yet short hairstyle in Mission: Impossible 2. I tried getting that hairstyle once, but it didn’t go all that well. Lately, I’ve been liking the long yet short look of the nefarious Dr. Gaius Baltar on the new Battlestar Galactica. You can see in the photos below what I’m thinking about.
What do you think of them? If you have alternative hairstyles that I should think about, post up the links using the comments below! I don’t want to get short hair on Saturday… after all, if I don’t like it, I’m stuck with it for the wedding. Better to keep it still a bit long to keep my options open come June.
