About Locks of Love:

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

About Mike Todd Serenity Salon:

The Todd family has 4 generations in the barber & beauty industry, with over 203 years experience, and all three living generations still work together in the family business today with over 161 years total combined work experience! (that doesn't include our other 8 stylists!)

Mike's mom & dad, Bobby & Barbara Todd, trained under "the" Alexander of Paris, who invented the "Shag" haircut of the '60's. And also with "the" Vidal Sassoon of London (Barbara had her hair cut by Vidal Sassoon while in London!) Then they returned to Winston-Salem and start the "Uni-sex" and precision haircutting trend of the '60's and early '70's.

Mike also went to London after finishing Cosmetology school at Leon's Beauty College in Greensboro, in pursuit of excellence in education. He also trained with the Prestigious Toni & GuyHairdressing Academy, and went on to be voted Ambassador of the year 1991 with them and has had his hairworks published in several European Magazines. Mike's older and younger sisters, and niece complete the family legacy.

I donated my hair this weekend to Locks of Love. I am a breast cancer survivor and I hope my "blonde ponytail" can help the children that are less fortunate than I. Locks of Love is a wonderful organization and I urge many to donate.

That's great that you have made the commitment to donate your hair. I donated my hair back at Easter time. I felt that it was something God wanted me to do so now I tell people that I gave up my hair for Jesus! It's been great to witness to others from this act.

It was pretty hard for me since I have pretty much have always had long hair. I can't say that I like my hair short, but its growing fast and I look forward to doing it again!

God bless you and I will pray for whoever receives your hair that it will bless them.
