Day 1870 - Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Donating hair to charity.

Jessica donates her hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Campaign for the second time.

You might remember a post I did two years ago on how my niece Jessica cut her hair for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Campaign which donates real hair wigs for women with cancer. She was only twelve at the time and her kindness inspired a number of other young girls to get the chop for charity.  Jessica's story was publicised in the Canberra Chronicle and also in Dolly Magazine.

Well yesterday our Jessica fronted up again! Yep, after just two years her hair had grown back enough so that she could donate another 25cm.


When interviewed for Dolly Magazine in their January 2014 issue, Jessica said that she would love to do it again one day.  Well, she was true to her word and that "one day" came around very quick.



With the help of Scissor and Roc Hairdressing on the Kingston Foreshore area of the ACT, Jessica got a whole new "do" yesterday while at the same time helping another woman to feel good about herself during cancer treatment.  We don't know who that woman will be, but we do know that she'll look stunning with the help of Jessie's beautiful blonde locks.


Here are some pictures of Jessica's donation.
