Meredith Cohen, 12, of Menlo Park takes a look at 14 inches of her hair just cut off by hair designer Meli McNiel at Textures Hair Salon in downtown Menlo Park on May 12.

Meredith had her bat mitzvah service earlier that morning and planned to surprise her friends with the new haircut at a party later that day.

She is selling her hair for $500 and donating the money to My New Red Shoes, an organization that helps provides shoes and clothes for homeless and low-income kids.
