UCLA students get haircuts for charity

More than 200 long-haired UCLA students, staff and alumni will enjoy a free on-campus haircut today, and the cut-off locks will be donated to a nonprofit that provides hairpieces to children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

About 45 student hairstylists from the Vidal Sassoon Academy will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the James West Alumni Center for the second annual hair-cutting event to benefit Locks of Love.

Participants, who are required to have at least 5 inches of hair to donate, secured their appointments weeks in advance, but a few slots are available for walk-ins. An official count of inches donated will be tallied at the end of the day. Last year’s event brought in 2,100 inches.
