Oh hiii Monday! I’m still out in San Francisco for a few days to take some meetings. Our girls’ weekend in Sonoma was so much fun, but we’ll get to that later. Today, we’re chatting about hair, and an easy way to do something good and give back.
September 8th (just under a month away!) is actually National Donate Your Hair Day, a day of giving that encourages people to cut and donate their hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program.
This year, Pantene will be launching their “$8 or 8″ Challenge,” asking people to either give $8 to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund; or cut and donate 8″ of hair to create free, real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer. The program launched in 2006, and since it’s inception has received over 800,000 hair donations from generous men, women, and children around the world. It actually takes 8-15 ponytails to create one wig, so every donation really matters!
What’s especially exciting about the $8 or 8 challenge is that now, everyone can participate. Many people are unable to donate their hair due to donation requirements and restrictions so now there is another way to support the program, through making a donation. I love that Pantene does this and I’m really excited to participate and make my own donation on September 8th! (In the meantime, you can learn more formal information about the program here.) I strongly encourage you all to circle September 8th on your calendar and share your donation on social media (tag @Pantene, and use #80r8 and #BeautifulLengths!)

Simply fallen in love with your shoes! I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this exact pair in Gossip Girl before 🙂
I think so! On Sex and the City too. They’re my faves!
Love those boyfriend jeans! Enjoy the rest of your time in San Francisco!

I like that they are encouraging $ donations, since not everyone can donate hair.
Love this outfit. I like when you wear something again but in a new way. A new outfit all the time is too much. I like to see different ways of styling outfits. I like getting inspiration from others.
I know, I feel the exact same way! Makes me happy that I can make a (small difference.)
And I know what you mean regarding re-wearing pieces. I never want my outfits to feel boring; but in my everyday life I wear things over and over and over again; so I want to show that here. 🙂
Hope you had a great weekend lady!
Killer pair of shoes and a perfect statement necklace make this casual outfit a show stopper!
You hair looks amazing, I love how your eyes just pop.
