Hair Be Gone Again

So this is what I did last weekend –

That's 9 inches of my hair that I'm donating to Pantene Beautiful Lengths to become a real-hair wig for the American Cancer Society's wig banks across the country. I would have given more inches, but I wanted to keep my hair as long as possible while still meeting their minimum donation length. Why?

Because showbiz likes me with longer hair. If you’ve been reading my blog regularly, you know that even though I prefer my hair short, history shows that I book more acting jobs when my hair is longer.

And the data:

Jobs booked with short hair: 3      Jobs booked with long hair: 15

Yeah. This is a really silly business sometimes.


  1. how interesting!!! i have had the same hair length for…ever….

  2. My hair was the same forever too. It wasn't until I started playing around with the length that I realized the difference. It's a little too short now, but luckily it grows like grass! :)

  3. I was wondering about that...tv/film likes me with bangs, but theatre LOVES me without. So, I'm trying to figure out a "best of both worlds" style. Maybe long bangs? Trendier layers? Suggestions? :)

  4. Oh, that *is* a tricky question! My first thought is that it would be easier to hide bangs on stage than it would be to create bangs for TV & film. And I know layers are a whole different deal when your hair is curly. I would talk to a professional! :)

  5. OMG. yes. I chopped my hair off and had NOTHING happen. They'd call me in sure, but they had no idea what to do with me. lol.
