With two little ones to take care of at home, Thomas Rhett‘s wife Lauren Akins doesn’t have much free time on her hands any longer. To make things easier for herself, Lauren decided it was time to make a big change to her former hairstyle.
Up until the other day, Lauren was known for her long locks. When it came time to take her maternity photos prior to welcoming daughter #2 Ada James, Lauren enlisted the help of The Dry House Salon in Nashville to style her hair.
Now that baby Ada is here, Lauren made a return to the Dry House Salon for some more hairstyle help. But this time she didn’t simply go in to have it styled, she went in for a full-out haircut.
Joined by her other daughter Willa Gray, Lauren visited the Dry House Salon to have over a foot of her hair cut off. She debuted the dramatic change in a photo that she shared on Instagram, which shows Willa Gray holding the ponytail her mama had cut off.
“Willa Gray got into my scissors this morning,” Lauren joked in the caption to her photo.
Lauren plans to donate her cut hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program, which creates real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatments. Those who donate hair have to make sure the ponytail is at least eight inches long.
