Virginia educator donates her long hair to The Great Cut event at NBC4 Washington

Virginia teacher Erica Hosken took the selfless decision to cut her hair, which had grown down to her waist after years of care. She participated in The Great Cut 2024, an event where individuals donate their hair to benefit the nonprofit organization Children With Hair Loss. Her donation will impact a child like Bella Clopton, who received a wig from Children With Hair Loss when she lost her hair due to medical reasons. Clopton shared her struggles with being mocked and stared at due to her hair loss. Receiving a wig made a significant positive impact on her life, providing her with confidence and happiness.

Lindsay Barto and Chris Healy created The Great Cut, an event that gathers hair donations to create wigs for children. Their past events have collected hundreds of pounds of hair for this purpose. Barto emphasized the importance of uniting like-minded individuals to support a greater cause by making such donations. Healy, planning to donate his 26-inch long hair, expressed his dedication to the cause. The main event takes place in San Diego but allows people from different locations to participate by cutting and mailing in their hair donations.

Celebrity hairstylist Peggy Ioakim assisted Erica Hosken by cutting her hair for the cause and giving her a new shoulder-length layered style. Ioakim commended Hosken for her contribution and impact on children in need. Those interested in participating can send their hair donations to The Great Cut 2024 by March 16. Further details can be found on their website.
