Meghan Slowey, a Scranton resident and student at the University of Tennessee, donated more than 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit
organization that makes wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
“We were excited to help Meghan make the donation to Locks of Love,” explained Dina
Cipriano, owner of Fusion Hair Design, Scranton. “It’s nice to be able to help children suffering from long-term medical hair loss feel the same type of confidence that our clients feel when they leave the salon.”
In support of Locks of Love, Fusion Hair Design provides free haircuts to individuals
interested in donating at least 10 inches or more of their hair.
Locks of Love, established in 1997, utilizes donated hair and resources to provide hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 with medical hair loss. The children receive these $3,500 hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
