Northwest Arkansas Makes the Kindest Cut
The annual Pantene Beautiful Lengths was held Wednesday night at the John Q. Hammons Center, hosted by Neile Jones and Gisel Ruiz with special guests Morgan Pressel, Natalie Gulbis, and Razorback football coach Bret Bielema with his wife Jen. Over 300 ponytails were collected, consisting of eight inches of hair each to make real-hair wigs for cancer patients. Included in that count were five LPGA players—Megan McChrystal, Tiffany Joh, Jacqui Concolino, Stacey Keating and Cindy LaCrosse, who also cut their hair for the cause.
In addition to the exciting event last night, students from area schools got involved during the last week of May at satellite cuts held in Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale and Fayetteville public schools. During the aptly-named Pantene Beautiful Lengths Week an additional 82 ponytails were collected.
