Cutting Off Ponytails for Locks of Love | VideoMichelle San Miguel | 10/6/2012
Hairstylists at Mane Expressions in Mandan cut off about 26 ponytails. The owner says between six to eight ponytails go into making just one wig.
Cutting hair is more than just a profession for these stylists. They say the work becomes emotional when they have to shave customers` heads who start losing their hair during cancer treatments.
"I think we`ve all had several clients that have gone through it so yeah makes it kind of hard because yeah we`ve all known someone to lose their hair to either alopecia or to cancer," said Lisa Ripplinger, co-owner of Mane Expressions.
Many customers said they felt like a different person and were happy to know their hair was going to someone in need.
