PROVO, Utah – Women with lengthy locks submitted themselves to a charitable chop at Brigham Young University Wednesday.

The Locks of Love event offered students with at least 10 inches of hair to spare the opportunity to donate to a good cause.

The biannual event helps offer patients with medical-related hair loss the chance to have a new hairdo. The effort was the work of the school's Center for Service and Learning and stylists from the Renaissance Academie hair salon. The salon is owned by a woman who survived cancer, and she said that makes the event all the more meaningful to her.

FOX 13 News’ Dave Nemeth was at the event, see the video above for his interviews with organizers and donors.
