Crystal Lake twins donate hair to Locks of Love

Olivia Nippe-Jeakins, 9, of Crystal Lake, checks her look in a mirror Monday after she and her twin sister, Kathryn, (below) split with 8 inches of their hair on Monday. Barber Steve Marshall of International Hairways, 8 N. Williams St. in Crystal Lake, did the cutting.
