ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) — Five Clatsop County men made a pact a year-and-a-half ago to grow out their hair and donate it to an American Cancer Society program that makes wigs for cancer patients.
If anyone cut their hair before the donation, he'd have to pay the others $50 apiece.
The Daily Astorian reports (http://bit.ly/16MHz4i ) all five kept the pact. And on Saturday they had their long locks cut down to about half an inch. Four went to an Astoria salon, Salon Boheme, and one who now lives in Southern California was shorn in San Diego.
Each surrendered about 8 inches of hair.
Hair stylist Tabbitha McGrorty says men's hair is better for wigs because it usually hasn't been treated as much as women's hair.
