Blair Workman, of Huntersville, holds up 11 inches of her hair, which she donated recently to Locks of Love. Kerry Vetrone of Sola Salon in Cornelius cut and styled the 9-year-old’s hair.

Blair, who is a third-grader at Cannon School, is the daughter of Mark and Karen Workman. Locks of Love collects hair to make hairpieces for children who have long-term medical-related hair loss.
