Our Founder recently did just that and what she lost in length was far exceeded by what she gained! All you need is 10 inches of hair and you can help restore confidence in a child suffering from long term medical hair loss.

Bravo Kelly for being -- you!

Standing up for yourself is hard, in the public spotlight against a music icon like Clive Davis... even harder.

"I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don't have to cower to anyone - even Clive Davis."

Good for Kelly Clarkson for having the courage to defend…

A little boy and his French bulldog: a love story

"Is there anything cuter than a child and a dog? It’s pretty much physically impossible not to emit some kind of involuntary cooing noise while clicking through these sweet snaps of a little boy and his best buddy, a little white French bulldog.

What is your art?

I had a new friend ask me the other day what is my art? I was taken back a little by the question. I had never had someone ask me anything like that before. It got me thinking. Do I have an art? My new friend's art is writing. She not only writes a very famous blog, she also writes for the free neighborhood paper.

My husband is a 3D animator. He is also an amazing guitar player. I would say his art is clearly 3D; however if you asked him, I have a feeling he would say it is the music.…

Filip Kwiatkowski for The New York Times

It’s hard to look authentically rebellious or menacing these days, when even well-behaved businessmen wear earrings and ponytails and college students destined for quiet suburban lives have body piercings and tattoos.
