Oprah Attacks Hillary With A Sharp Object: What You, Too, Can Do For Cancer

November 12, 2007 by kendah

Step aside, Jose Eber…. Oprah's got a brand new bag. Though better known for her uplifting spirit, book club, and thyroid problem, what you probably didn't know about Oprah is that she now cuts hair. Whipping out a pair of scissors in the name of cancer, Oprah took nine inches off Academy Award-winning actress Hillary Swank's locks as a part of her Oprah's Great American Haircut show.

Swank grew out her hair for months before the show in support of Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a program designed to collect hair to make wigs for women battling cancer. Their goal–to collect a million-inch chain of donated hair. A human-hair wig usually costs around $1,200, a high price to pay for women funneling most of their funds into fighting a disease.

What can you do to help out? Chop off at least eight inches of your own hair, and follow these instructions on how to donate. Just don't ask Oprah to do it, unless you want to pay Hollywood prices to fix it.

And here are a couple of products to help you transition to your new, boyish 'do:

 

1. Frederic Fekkai Coiff Tousled Wave Spray ($23) is a great way to pretend that you've either just stepped off the plane from St Barts or that your bed-head look was totally on purpose. A few, quick sprays give you the perfect beachy look, not to mention time to adjust to your short hair.

2. Likely the best hair gel on earth, Meros Hair Foundation Jell ($17) cures all problems from dry hair to frizz to UV damage and beyond. And boy, does it leave a beautiful luster. A great way to tame your locks– curly or straight–as you figure out the ropes with your new short style.
