How do I cut my hair for Locks of Love?
Once your hair is up, the hair simply needs to be trimmed just above the ponytail or braids, so that the holder does not slip off. A standard pair of scissors is all you need to make this cut. Hair that was cut off in the past is usable so long as it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.

Can I sell my hair?
Selling your hair could be the answer. The best wigs and hair extensions are made from human hair, which means healthy hair is always in high demand. And it happens to be pretty easy to sell online. If you’re always getting compliments on your long locks, you might want to consider selling your hair.
