Thinking of Pulling a Britney? Donate your hair!

02/20/2007 at 03:21 PM ET

Are you looking to embrace your inner Britney Spears — and shave your head? Instead of selling your hair (the salon where Britney went razor-happy is auctioning off her tresses), what about donating your ‘do? Britney’s ex Kevin Federline reportedly donated his hair to Locks of Love when he went from a shoulder-length coif to a buzz cut. That charity provides free hairpieces and wigs to children who have lost their hair due to illness. It’s pretty easy to do — take it from someone who knows. Three weeks ago, I made my own donation. I just filled out a form online and mailed in my cut-off hair (which took only a year and a half to grow — the charity needs a minimum of 10 inches). Best of all, you don’t need to go for a full-on chrome dome like Britney; a nice short bob will do. — Cara Shultz

I gave my hair to, “Locks of Love” once already; but I was wondering is Locks of Love the only place to donate my hair? I was told that a lot of stars donated their hair to a different company that does not get hair from Locks of Love and these children really need all they can get. Can you please email me and also send me information on where else I can donate my hair. Everyone ones about Locks of Love, I am looking for the company that other company. My address is: Debra McGinley, 1221 Cambridge Street Apt. #1006, Cambridge, Mass., 02139
Thankyou
