Akins debuted her hairdo on Instagram. Akins', 27, post explained the reason for the change. 

“Willa Gray got into my scissors this morning,” joked Akins. “We just had a day date at @thedryhousenashville and Ali chopped over a FOOT off my hair #mamaneededlesshair #ifeelfreeeeeee.” 

She added the heartwarming thing she's going to do with her hair: she's donating her hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths campaign. Akins hair will be used to create real-hair wigs for women with cancer.


Her hairstylist, Dry House, shared a montage of Akins transformation. The montage showed Akins holding Willa Gray in her arms.
