Local Store Hosts Annual Hair Drive

EmbroidMe Encinitas is holding its 2nd Annual Hair Drive for the Locks of Love organization.

In 2007, Owner Sandra Sapol donated her hair to the organization in honor of her friend, Michelle Tehrani, who lost her six-year battle with breast cancer the year before. Locks of Love provides custom hairpieces made entirely from donated human hair to adults and children who suffer from permanent hair loss.

Donated hair must be at least 10 inches in length and must be bundled in a pony-tail or braid. Hair that has been dyed or permed can be used, but bleached hair cannot.

Hair donations are accepted from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday during April and May at EmbroidMe Encinitas, 191 N. El Camino Real, suite 202, Encinitas. For more information, call (760) 943-8022.
