Chip Gaines from “Fixer Upper” just shaved his head after finding out that people didn’t like his long hair, but it also benefits a great cause.

Chip Gaines has had a lot of different haircuts over the years, but never this short. He was helping to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and said that he would trim his hair shorter and shorter as the goal got closer to being met. The goal was exceeded, and he decided shaving his hair completely off was the best way to answer that.

Last week is when it all started. Apparently his longer hairstyle was pretty universally disliked, so Chip posted a picture, saying he’d go ahead with a new style if people donated to St. Jude.

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 at @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, enough people hated his hair (or really just wanted to donate), that they were able to raise about a quarter-million dollars in just 4 days. So chip did the extreme, kept his word, and got a hair or two cut:

The Target House is a housing facility in Memphis, designed for the families of patients to stay while receiving care from the hospital. It’s supported by Target, in which Chip and Joanna just launched their new “Hearth and Hand” line of products, and that’s why they were paired with the hospital. Pretty cool, and a great cause!
