Singer Lloyd has cut his trademark long locks in support of a worthy cause.
The R&B star, who began growing his hair over 10 years ago, says he felt like it was time for a change, and time to give back.
He has since released a statement on his decision to cut his hair saying,
“I’ve been growing my hair since 9th grade. It’s time for a new me. The fact that my hair will go to someone that needs it more than me, makes me feel great about my decision.”
Non-profit organization Locks of Love will use Lloyd’s donated hair to provide a hair piece for a financially disadvantaged child (under age 21) suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
Lloyd’s longtime hair braider reportedly gave the artist one last 12-inch braid before doing the honors and cutting it off.
In between cutting his hair, LLoyd’s working on his fourth studio album and Zone 4/Interscope debut, ‘King of Hearts’ which will be lead by the new single “Lay It Down”produced by Awesome Jones a.k.a. Polow Da Don.
Lloyd teamed up withVIBE for pictures of the haircut.
