LPGA stars Mina Harigae, Jennifer Johnson, Brittany Lang, Sarah Jane Smith, Brittany Lincicome, Azahara Munoz, Morgan Pressel, Beatriz Recari, Yani Tseng and Wendy Ward, as well as LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan, offered their services as haircutters.
“I knew about the event last year, but I didn’t have long enough hair so I kept it in mind all year,” said Jane Rah. “I did not expect the event to be so big. It was amazing to see the whole community come out and support such a great cause.”
In addition to Wednesday night’s participants, 100 donors cut their hair prior to the event, taking the total number of donations to more than 400, a record number for the event. The first-ever Pantene Beautiful Lengths event in Northwest Arkansas in 2007 had only eight participants. This year, every school in the Northwest Arkansas region was represented from students ranging from five to 18.
