“Fixer Upper” star Chip Gaines has been sporting his long locks for some time, but they’re gone!
Gaines shaved his head and donated his hair to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. His wife Joanna posted a pic of kids rubbing his bald head, writing, “We are leaving Memphis changed. Kiddos of @stjude we go with your faces on our minds and your stories in our hearts.”
She added, “Thank you for letting us be a part of your home at Target House. We are cheering you on every step of the way.”
Last week, Chip revealed that he would shave his head if fans donated to St. Jude. He wrote on Instagram, “Donate to St. Jude through the link in my profile, and the more money we raise over the next FOUR days, the shorter my hair goes. That’s a promise. And, who knows, maybe if you really exceed my expectations…I’ll buzz it all off.”
It’s come to my attention that most of you hate my current hairstyle. But how MUCH do you hate it? Now’s the time to put your money where your mouth is. ⠀ ⠀ So here's the deal: Next week, Jo and I are visiting the beautiful kids at Target House with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. No family ever pays @StJude for treatment, travel or food—so basically, we want to bring them a giant check from YOU to help cover costs—lets come together to do something big to bless these kiddos. ⠀ ⠀ Donate to @StJude through the link in my profile, and the more money we raise over the next FOUR days, the shorter my hair goes. That's a promise. And, who knows, maybe if you really exceed my expectations...I'll buzz it all off. #OperationHaircut
Chip said goodbye to his hair just before the premiere of the final season of “Fixer Upper.”
