Community Service Field Notes: Miss Sulphur Heritage and the kindest cut of all

Erin Husbands, Miss Sulphur Heritage, grew her
hair out for over two years, not as a style choice,
but as a community service. This fall, she had 10
inches cut off to donate to the non-profit organization
“Locks of Love,” which provides wigs for children
who have lost their hair due to illness. As reporter
Lee Peck of KPLC TV told viewers, this is the
second time; Erin first donated hair to Locks of Love
almost three years ago, and she planned for this
second haircut almost from the moment the first
was complete. That’s quite a vision—a donation
two years in the making. But Erin says that getting
new hair is “a life-changing experience for those
children, and I just had to step in and do what I could.”
