Teenager Gets Her First Haircut after 16 Years

While some people have haircut as part of their routine, some people choose to have their hair trimmed whenever they feel that their life is about to change.

For 16 years, Roxy decided not to have her Rapunzel-like hair chopped. But as she is about to enter adulthood, the young lass opted to let go of most of her locks and donate it to Beautiful Length charity.

“I decided to cut my hair because it is time. I’m going to college in January, I’m growing up and I’m gonna be 17 in March,” Roxy told Seventeen magazine.

With the help of Hollywood hairstylist Danilo, who previously worked with Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani, and Seventeen Magazine, Roxy finally got her much-needed haircut after more than a decade of growing it.
