Locks of Love Haircut

Hut, before his haircut.

As you all know, my wonderful husband had his haircut today for the Locks of Love. He's been growing his hair for just a little over 6 months. It started out as a contest with his boss, who was also growing his hair for the Locks of Love. But T. Michael's hair wasn't growing very fast and his hair is really curly, so he kind of gave up. Hut kept on. I kept waiting for a Locks of Love event, as they are usually posted in the newspapers, but no such luck. Then low and behold....a State Farm employee walked in last Friday with a flyer about an event they were having today in downtown Winter Haven. The salon that did the cutting is called Haircut Naturally. It is on Central and 3rd, well really 3rd. It was the neatest place. Hut got his haircut in an elevator shaft....yep. I wish I had a better camera to take pictures....it was the coolest thing. Especially since the building has only one floor. And Haircut Naturally is usually closed on Mondays, but they donated their time to do this. The employees were told they could work the event if they wanted to and do you know they ALL showed up and donated their time. How awesome is that. Well without further ado, here's Hut's haircut...............

Not a great shot, but this is Chuck, cutting Hut's ponytail off. I wish I had gotten a better picture of Chuck.

Hut's new look. I just love it!

That's a great haircut and he looks terrific. It is wonderful that he did that.
My daughter did that too, and she's always had long hair. She got 14 inches chopped off last year, and she went from long hair to short hair in one fell swoop.
Locks of Love is a wonderful thing!
