Every year for 13 years Midwestern University in Glendale has brought in hairstylists from various salons to cut hair for the Cuts for Kids event.
People who are willing to donate 10 inches or more of their hair get a free cut and their tresses are donated to Locks of Love to make wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
People with shorter hair make a donation for their haircut, which is donated to 1 Darn Cool School at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
