Marshall University students have collected more than 198 feet of hair to be donated to Locks of Love.

WMUL-FM and the Huntington School of Beauty Culture held the seventh annual Hair for the Herd event Thursday at Marshall's Student Center Plaza in Huntington.

The station says the event drew 28 different donors. The beauty school alone donated about 117 feet of hair collected over the past year.

The nonprofit group Locks of Love makes wigs for financially disadvantaged people under age 21 suffering from long-term hair loss.
