The Fixer Upper couple paid a visit to The Target House in Memphis, Tennessee to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The deal was—the more money that is donated, the shorter Chip’s hair gets.

Also, if the goal is exceeded— he shaves 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

Well, the goal was quickly met AND exceeded—



Off came those wavy, auburn locks!


Chip & Joanna Gaines left behind a mess of red hair and a $230K donation to help end childhood cancer.


Just adorable.
