Low-maintenance hairstyles are in this season By TERI JOHNSON Staff Writer Last fall Rose Yontz decided to let her hair down. She told her stylist, Drue Steerman of Tangles Hair Salon in Martinsburg, W.Va., to cut off her shoulder-length tresses. "I just told Drue to take it off, as short as she could get it," says Yontz, 48, of Martinsburg. "I was tired of it being long. " With each salon visit, her hair gets a little shorter. "It's much easier to take care of; it pretty much falls in place," she says.

Lindsay Conrad, formerly of Waynesboro, Pa., recently donated 10 inches of her hair to the Locks of Love program. She decided after four years of growing her hair out, it was finally time to donate it to Locks of Love. For her, the only place to do this was at Snips Hair Studio in her hometown, where she has been getting her hair cut since she was 8 years old. When asked if she will miss her long hair, Conrad said, “Yes, it took me all of college to grow it, and I loved my long hair, but it will grow back and now a child will be blessed.” Locks of Love accepts hair donations and provides wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness.
