Making that first haircut worthwhile

CHESTERTOWN That first haircut can be scary, funny or forgettable, but for Kaitlyn Kramar, it will mean help for someone else. Kramar, age 4, is a student at the Chestertown Head Start, where they offer free haircuts each year from stylist and Head Start assistant Laura Bennett. We sent a note home for parents and if they wanted their kids to have a haircut, they sent permission slips, said Head Start Director Valerie Rohm. For Kaitlyn, its her first haircut and her hair was long enough to donate to Locks for Love. Kramar sat patiently in her chair while Bennett carefully banded her long hair before cutting it. Donated hair must be clean and in ponytails in order to be accepted by Locks of Love, the organization that provides free wigs for disadvantaged kids who have lost their hair due to illness, treatment or burns.
