When Maxene Magalona chopped off her waist-length hair last month, she didn’t just get a fresh new cut—she also donated her hair to Hair for Hope, a donation drive that helps create wigs for cancer patients. “These wigs give them a sense of hope and the strength to continue to fight their battle with cancer,” she said on Instagram yesterday.
This year, it was Maxene’s husband, Rob Mananquil, who encouraged her to get her hair cut. “I was always so scared to do it, thinking that my hips were too huge and that I needed long hair to balance things out. Thanks to my husband who never fails to encourage me, I finally mustered up the courage to do it!”
