SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) -

One hair salon owner speaks out after hearing about donated locks of hair trashed at a Great Clips in North Carolina. 

Style Studio Owner Cortney Stubenrauch says she and her staff in Scott City were sickened when they they heard a box of hair donations tossed in a dumpster. 

"I think it's really sad that people went in trusting that they were going to be donated into their organization of choice and they just threw them in the trash," Stubenrauch said. 

Even her clients said they were shocked to hear that someone would trash those locks of hair. 

"Kids need that reassurance to fit in. Anyone losing their hair, that's obviously a traumatic thing," Stubenrauch said. "To at least have a wig to fit in more with your peers is a big deal."

She says it's a dagger to the heart to those people with cancer and have hair loss. 

Stubenrauch says people come to her salon and donate their hair from time to time. Stylists from there even go to Scott City High School every other year to cut hair and save those locks. This year, they got 16 locks from the students at an assembly. 

Stylists put those locks of hair in plastic bags, box them up and save them. After they have several accumulated, they then send them out to the organization chose by the client. Some clients receive certificates that tells them they were sent to their organization Stubenrauch said. 

"You got to trust your hair dresser and where they're going. We have a good strong bond with our clients," Stubenrauch said. "But you can also send off the hair yourself if they choose too."

Style Studios employees say they are passionate about helping those children and adults who need hair. They give free haircuts to those who donate more than eight inches.
