CINCINNATI - There were massive cuts at Procter & Gamble's headquarters Monday, but it had nothing to do with jobs.

More than 75 Procter & Gamble employees cut their hair to donate to the American Cancer Society to create free real-hair wigs for cancer patients.

It's a part of "Pantene Beautiful Lengths," P&G's program that has helped provide 30,000 wigs to women undergoing chemotherapy since it began seven years ago.

The second annual donation event at P&G headquarters took place from noon until 4 p.m. Good Morning Tri-State anchor Kathrine Nero, a cancer survivor, emceed the event.

Each donor got post-cut styling from several local stylists.

The event serves as a kickoff to Pantene's national "Donate Your Hair Day" Sept. 7.
