I did remember to take a photo of my chopped-off ponytail when I got my hair cut last weekend:
It ended up being just about 10 inches long (a little longer than I’d anticipated, actually), but I sent it to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program instead of Locks of Love anyway. I was sure I’d met Pantene’s minimum length requirement of 8 inches, and was afraid that someone at Locks of Love might think barely 10 inches wasn’t good enough.
It was such a bizarre feeling as the stylist cut the ponytail off and the hair that was still attached to my head fell free. The ponytail itself was a bit creepy – kind of a like dead animal. I sent it in the same day because I just wanted to get rid of it!
