I did it! It is a done deal!! I am now minus 10.5 inches of hair! I am so excited that I finally accomplished one of my lifetime goals! I love my new hair style and so does my husband. (Thank goodness) Thank you to everyone that came and supported Melanie and Locks of Love. What a great organization! I know they will do great things with our combination of over 45 inches of hair! Thank you ladies!
