The big reveal


Green Hills Community resident Deb Martin, 63, right, reacts Tuesday to her new short hairstyle following her donation to Locks of Love through a hair cut provided by Tammy Woods, left, beautician at Green Hills’ beauty salon and barber shop. The hair cut marked the third donation to the charity for Ms. Martin, who also is a cancer survivor. “And I’m proud of it,” she said, explaining that she had cancerous skin tissue removed from her head in late July. Locks of Love requires hair to be at least 10 inches long, and Ms. Woods noted, “We are well over that mark.” Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the U.S. and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Ms. Martin has been growing her auburn-colored locks since her last donation made in February 2010. (PHOTO | GREEN HILLS COMMUNITY)
