Shaun White

I CHOPPED MY HAIR OFF!

(For Charity)

breaking news



Shaun White's flowing red locks ARE GONE ... for now at least ... because the snowboarding legend just hacked off his mane!!!

The good news ... Shaun says he decided to get rid of his long hair because he wanted to donate to the Locks of Love charity ... which provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged kids who have suffered a medical hair loss.

Before White went under the clippers, he explained his decision -- "I've been thinking about this one for a while ... but it's for a good cause so I want to do it."

As he stroked his iconic hair one last time ... he added, "Somebody needs it more than I do."

His hair doesn't seem long enough for donations.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths is a MUCH better organization (compared to Locks of Love) for donating hair!!!!

I was getting a haircut yesterday. A guy walked in, removed his hat and told my stylist he shaved off his head and wanted to donate his hair. She happily took it. We talked about how if someone wants to do this, they will cut and style their hair for free. Not sure where the shop donates it, but it was awesome seeing someone do this. I have known about it for a while, just never saw someone walk into a place to do it.

My kid donated 16 inches of hair to locks of love. I think it's a great thing to do.

Cool of him to do that. My husband had almost waist length hair most of his life, and he got it cut / donated it when a few people we knew were hit with cancer. It took some getting used to for him but I'm sure it was a big help to someone that really needed it.
