FAYETTEVILLE, AR--Students of Happy Hollow Elementary School lined up on Friday to get their pony-tails snipped for a good cause.

"It's very near and dear to my heart that there are people who are willing to donate their hair to provide this for people who are going through a very costly experience as well as trying to keep alive."

All for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Campaign, students are letting go of their long locks for cancer patients.

Student, Gizell Gonzolez said "it feels weird a little bit."

For teacher Dorthea Justice, the benefits hit home. Her sister was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer two years ago and she says it's been a rough road.

"She lost all of her hair."

However, with her new wig, Dorthea's sister can feel beautiful.

"People who are going through a very very difficult time where they can feel a little bit normal and feel like they're not being looked at and labeled with a disease that they are going through."

Kids at Happy Hollow are hoping to help others by giving up their hair.

Third grade student, Gizell Martinez said "even if I have this hair, the people who have cancer deserve it more than me."
