Susan's hair was donated to Locks of Love, an organization special to Alba.
"I told my girls that they're only allowed to cut their hair if they donate it, and we donated my older one's hair. And it is amazing, because really, Locks of Love is a great organization," she said of daughters Honor, 8, and Haven, 5, before shortening Susan's tresses.
