It's often the first thing you notice about a person. Whether it's blonde, red, curly, or braided - it's safe to say hair is a part of a person's identity.

So when the six Kannisto boys and their mother Phoebe, decided to cut their long hair, friends and family members were shocked.
"Everyone is kind of attached to their hair or at least what you look like with you hair" Phoebe told 7 Eyewitness News.
One by one each member of this family, which consists of a set of twins and a set of triplets, cut their locks.
In all 17 feet of hair was collected and is being sent to the organizationChildren with Hair Loss. The organization takes donated hair and turns it into wigs for children, free of charge.
