Shailene Woodley Will Cut Her Hair for 'The Fault in Our Stars' Role & Donate it to Charity




Author John Green informed us on his tumblr that Shailene Woodley is cutting her hair this weekend to prepare for her role as Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars movie. And she’s donating her hair to Children with Hair Loss, an organization that provides free wigs to kids who’ve experienced hair loss due to cancer, burns, or other medical conditions.

"When Shailene told me about this, I immediately thought there might be people in nerdfighteria who want to join her. (We already have one convert joining in: Shailene’s mom!) So if you have eight or more inches of spare hair, consider donating it to Children with Hair Loss.
And if you do, let me know via the tags hairforhazel or itgrowsback, so I can put together some pictures/reblog your beautiful faces. I want to be clear that this was entirely Shai’s idea. (I don’t even think the studio knows about it.) I hope if you’re able, you’ll consider joining Shai in donating. Thanks!"

Shailene later posted a message on her very own tumblr: 
"As some of you may know, I will be cutting my hair off this coming weekend in order to help morph my physical body into that of the incredible Hazel Grace Lancaster—-and i couldn’t be more amped. not only do i have the opportunity to externally shift my current establishment of self, but i have the blessed gift of donating my long locks to a wonderful organization who will then create a wig for someone in need. WHAT AN HONOR." Read her full post HERE. It's pretty inspiring.

Veronica Roth also reminded Divergent fans who were worried about her hair for insurgent filming "that Tris hacks off her hair in the beginning of book 2. Not that it's that important, but: lucky coincidence."

Update: See pictures of Shailene's new hair after the cut! (literally)
