HGTV’s Nicole Curtis Chopped Off Over a Foot of Hair to Create Wigs for Children with Hair Loss


😂

Nicole Curtis made a major hair change — and it’s all for a very good cause.

The HGTV Rehab Addict star has become known for her flowing, waist-length locks, but Curtis decided she was ready to chop it off, and use the hair to create two wigs for children suffering from hair loss.

“I finally cut my hair (over a foot!) to donate to children with hair loss, all in time to go back to work shooting a new pilot with HGTV,” Curtis tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She continues, “We took donations from my fans to create two wigs for children (including my hair ) and provided the funding in honor of #tessaprothero , who would be 11 this month.”

Curtis teased her monumental cut earlier this week on Instagram, and explained that it had been her plan to chop and donate her hair in Tessa’s honor all along.

You’ve been warned -this is the beginning of my official “magic hair week”. I didn’t just grow it for the hell of it. Trust me, it’s heavy, it’s so long I sit on it, the only style is braid, braids or more braids and I’ve had to resort to my natural color (which btw had no clue what that was) (nor do I like it ). I decided to go this route after the bravest little mama entered my life -this month she would’ve turned 11 & I’m sure been so happy to grab the scissors herself & end this hair week. This was the result of someone asking how long it took to braid it ….15 secs. #worldcancerday2019 #tessaprothero #pediatriccancer #morethan4 (I’m cutting ten inches not the whole thing —it holds my head in place)

“In honor of our favorite little mama, my cousin, Lauren (she’s brunette) and I decided to rally and donate our hair. It takes 15 to 20 ponytails to make one wig. I asked for donations from fans on Instagram and we have enough to make two wigs for children. We also are raising funds to cover the cost to make them,” Curis tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She then posted one final photo of her grown-out hair as she announced that she’s working with Children With Hair Loss to donate and construct the two wigs.
