|'Locks of Love' receives donation|
After many years of growing her hair, Hailey Oliver decided it was time for a change. The six year old had 10 inches cut off the length by stylist Fannie Arnold of Gilbert.
Oliver donated her ponytail to "Locks of Love," a non-profit organization that provides wigs and hair pieces to children suffering from long-term hair loss due to a medical diagnosis. Arnold is the owner of Fannie's Beauty Shop in Gilbert.
Locks of Love accepts donations from people of all ages, races and nationalities. Anyone who wishes to make a donation must follow the requirements below:
• Donated hair must be 10 inches or longer (curly hair can be pulled straight to meet the requirement).
• Hair may not be bleached, chemically damaged, or overprocessed.
• Permed or coloured hair is acceptable.
• Hair must be in the form of a clean, dry ponytail or braid.
• Dreadlocks are not accepted.
• Hair that is less than 10 inches or grey is seperated from the donations and sold to offset manufacturing costs.
