Love your hair? Three young women from Savannah love a friend even more. They all took the shaved look yesterday so they can look like a friend from church who’s going through chemotherapy.

One of the girls had hair long enough to donate to Locks of Love to make it more than just an act of support.

“We chose to do this for Nancy, but at the same time, it’s not our appearance that makes us beautiful, it’s what’s inside,” said Jennilee Baird. “It’s our hearts, too. And I feel like I don’t want it to be a selfish thing. I want it to be for Nancy and I want it to be because we love her, and we want to show her that.”

The girls admitted they were a little nervous before their cuts. But they seemed happy once they were finished.

All three go to the Southside Assembly of God.
