A Henrietta boy was showing off a new look and a big heart on Sunday after he got his hair cut for charity.
Nine-year-old Damien grew his hair for two-and-a-half years before getting it cut super short. He says it all started after he watched a YouTube video of a kid his same age donating his hair for a good cause.
Damien says he decided he wanted to donate his hair to a charity for cancer patients.
"Sometimes I didn't like it," he says, "but other times- like winter time- I did like it because it would actually kind of keep me warm."
Damien hopes his hair donation inspires other kids to do the same thing.
