If you guessed that the skater who was donating her hair to Locks of Love was LuLu … you were correct!

Here are some photos from her visit to Jade Salon earlier this week, courtesy of Victoria Stanbridge Photography

Pre-cut prep.


Look at all that hair!

Guess the roller girl …

Say bye-bye to all this hair! But whose hair is it?

Can you guess the roller girl in this photo?

After tomorrow, she might not be so recognizable. You see, this particular roller girl will be cutting 10 inches from her hair to donate to Locks of Love.

She will be getting her mane cut at Jade Salon during their Cuts for a Cause event, in which profits from Dec. 13 will be donated to the Cleveland Food Bank.

And to top it off, the stylist behind the scissors will be none other than former Hellbomber Erin Gargiulo! Double roller girls. Double charities. Double awesome!

Slots for haircuts for the day book up fast, but Jade Salon is also asking for canned good donations, if you want to stop by tomorrow and donate to their cause.

Are you a woman 18 or older?

Ever wonder what a roller derby practice is like? What kind of gear do you need? How do you get started? What kind of skills should you be working on to become a roller girl?

All these questions and more will be answered this Sunday, Dec. 4.

Women interested in more information about joining the Burning River Roller Girls are invited to watch our league practice Sunday morning. THIS IS ONLY TO WATCH, so no gear required.
