Actress Shailene Woodley debuted a shorter 'do on Twitter after chopping off her hair for her upcoming role in The Fault in Our Stars, and also made the most of the change by donating her tresses to the nonprofit Children With Hair Loss, which will create a wig for someone in need.
"Work in progress... but luckily, wrote with the cute photo.!!! :))," she
Woodley spoke about her transformation on tumblr, telling fans, "after much thought and curiosity surrounding the subject, I ﬁnally came to the conclusion that hair, for me, was a symbol of strength. It was a symbol of commitment to my power. Of connection to my ancestry. Of recognizing my natural beauty. That which exists without chemical dyes, or hairspray, or scissors."
She continued, "I think there is something so exceptionally admirable about one's commitment to allowing their face to shine without hair blocking it. It's all about balance I suppose. About knowing what's right for you on your own personal journey.
"There was a time when growing my hair out symbolized something for me, but the power of sharing that choice, sharing the ability to have long hair with someone feels far more powerful right now. I know what it feels like to have wind blow through my wavy locks, and I am over-the-top grateful I get to share that gift with another."
