Whether it's straight, curly or frizzy, Dance Marathon wouldn't be the same without the hair donated from the luscious locks of giving Rutgers students.

Two students in particular underwent amazing hair transformations at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.


Lahar Parikh, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore and a previous hair donor, decided to style her chopped of locks with long layers that beautifully frame her face.

"I volunteer at the children's hospital so I see how important it is to give and be selfless... a small gesture just like donating your hair encourages them to be comfortable in their own skin."

Clayton Twidle, a School of Arts and Sciences senior, was a little unsure about what to do with his newly shortened hair, so he left it in the hands of the professional stylist who gave him a cool, slicked back look. 

"Somebody needs it more than I do."

Don't they look great?
