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."

I commend him for doing it .Locks of Love only accepts untreated hair . So we know he is a true redhead but he is kind of douchie.Max cut his hair? Please! Ain't going to happen captain!

Locks of Love is a HUGE rip off. They have been known to sell their extra hair. I agree Pantene has a much better program and they way to go!

I did that a few weeks ago and my daughter did the same a few months back :) Locks of Love donations have to be at least 10 inches long. If you do it, make sure you tell the stylist before he/she starts to cut so they can do it in a way that the hair is saved as they cut it.

To the posters saying that Locks of Love doesn't accept treated hair...wrong. Go to their website FAQ, they will accept treated hair but not bleached hair. They have a list of what they can and cannot use. It's the first thing I looked up when I donated mine because I had had it colored in the past.
