Quarantine… Long Hair Don’t Care
If you’re on TikTok, you’ve definitely noticed the trend of dyeing only the strands of hair directly framing your face.
Also trending is stepping away from delivering  soft and blended layers, and transitioning them more into a disconnect style with a bit more ragged and unruly look.
But the real trend for that long grown out style could be what I witnessed at my last appointment prior to Shelter in Place orders at Salon Bianca.  Stylist Nick was working with a client who had the most incredible healthy head of natural ginger  hair.  I commented how extraordinary her hair was and they shared that it was being cut at least 12 inches for a donation.
Locks of Love and Wigs for Kids were the two locations for donation consideration.  Hairstylist Nick and the donor had been planning this moment for at least a year and I was able to capture the “CUT” moment with their permission.
The requirements for hair donation can vary, but in general:Hair needs to be clean and dry and placed in a braid or ponytail before it is cut. Only your natural hair  is accepted; no hair extensions, dreadlocks, or wigs Your ponytail or braid needs to be a certain length to be accepted.
So grow those locks during our “shelter in place” and  give a gift … thanks for living life with Panache
