When asked to do this shoot, I was so excited because the idea is so unique! You’ll quickly find out why! Meg wanted to capture her and her two best friends as they made a big cut in their lives. Literally. Meg, Jacqueline and Catherine have been friends for forever. The three of them had been growing their hair for a long time and were saving it to donate a ponytail to Angel Hair.(It’s a big thing for girls to get a hair cut–let alone to cut off over half of their hair). I mean, c’mon– actual angels. So sweet!
Angel Hair provides wigs and hair loss solutions for children in financially difficult situations who have lost their hair due to medical treatments. It takes 10-12 ponytails of hair to make one wig, so every little bit of donated hair helps!
We met at Salon Solis which has to be the cutest salon in Toronto! Located on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto, the salon has a beautiful front window that looks down on the street below (a people-watcher’s dream) and fantastic exposed brick walls that makes you want to just move in and never leave. The salon was so sweet and even offered the ladies free makeup services right after their haircuts just to make their day even more special! Thank you, Salon Solis for making this experience so warm and special!
Such a great way to capture memories and enjoy a special day together!
