So I finally got my hair cut today. I’ve always wanted to be brave and cut it short, but never had the courage or confidence—until now! Shailene Woodley’s post about her haircut served as direct impetus for me to be daring, as well. And for a good cause!
This event has prompted some self-reflection. I’m feeling extremely blessed; I dragged my mom into it, too. :) She has always been so supportive, and is responsible for me (steadfastly and stubbornly) believing all things corny about following my dreams. She is one of the chief reasons that I have retained my optimism in times of trouble. She is my best friend.
Anyway, John, if you see this, both my mom and I enjoyed TFIOS, are excited for the movie (!!), and strive to be awesome everyday.
Cross-generational Hair for Hazel!
Now if anybody knows me, I have been growing my hair out for years and it’s very special to me. Lately it’s become a huge hassle and I’ve been playing with the idea of chopping it all off. And this was just the push I need. I’ll be sending about nine inches to Children With Hair Loss. All the ladies at the hair salon loved the idea and said that they were going to go and read The Fault In Our Stars now.
Thank you Shailene and John for giving me that push that I needed and showing me a charity that takes processed hair!

A note from Shailene Woodley about hair and gifts and stuff. Check out the hairforhazel tag to see all the people joining Shai in donating their hair!
(Rosianna and I made Shailene a tumblr just for this occasion.)
yo i did the thing. fifteen inches going to children with hair loss!
Here is an unexpected and lovely thing happening in the Tumblr community around The Fault in Our Stars!
Shailene Woodley is cutting her hair this weekend to prepare for her role as Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars movie. And she’s donating her hair to Children with Hair Loss, an organization that provides free wigs to kids who’ve experienced hair loss due to cancer, burns, or other medical conditions.
When Shailene told me about this, I immediately thought there might be people in nerdfighteria who want to join her. (We already have one convert joining in: Shailene’s mom!) So if you have eight or more inches of spare hair, consider donating it to Children with Hair Loss.
And if you do, let me know via the tags hairforhazel or itgrowsback, so I can put together some pictures/reblog your beautiful faces.
I want to be clear that this was entirely Shai’s idea. (I don’t even think the studio knows about it.) I hope if you’re able, you’ll consider joining Shai in donating. Thanks!
(ALSO: huge thanks to Wyck and Isaac, the guys producing the movie, for taking time away from, like, movie producing to sort through the very complex world of hair donations.)
