Student Donates Hair
Jorge Orozco, an Auburn Career Center advanced manufacturing student from Chardon, decided that after three years of growing his hair out, it was time to get it cut. He wanted to donate it to Wigs for Kids and took to social media to ask for locations that would handle the donation.
Lindsey Pucella, a fellow Chardon High School student in Auburn’s cosmetology program, saw the Facebook post and informed Orozco that Auburn’s student-run salon could accommodate this service for him. Justine Malvicino, Auburn’s cosmetology instructor, worked with the students on the procedure for a hair donation.
Pucella cut Orozco’s hair; 12 inches was donated.
“I love knowing that I am donating my hair. It feels absolutely wonderful to know I’m helping someone out,” said Orozco. “I love it. I feel really attractive. They did a really good job, and my mom is absolutely going to love it.”
Auburn’s cosmetology salon is open on select Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Auburn Career Center is located at 8140 Auburn Road, Concord Township. For more information, call 440-357-7542 or visit www.auburncc.org.
