Chip Gaines is an American author born on November 14, 1974, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has been married to Joanna Gaines since 2003, and the couple also share five kids together, namely, Drake Gaines, Crew Gaines, Ella Rose Gaines, Duke Gaines and Emmie Kay Gaines.
One of the New York bestselling author, Gaines is a co-author and a cofounder of ‘Magnolia’, and is prominently known for having featured in a couple of television shows, especially the ‘Fixer Upper’ franchise.
The author is now collaborating with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for charity and has hopped onto the bandwagon of a social media challenge, with a motive of urging fans, celebrities and his friends and other influencers to come together and join hands to donate for this noble cause.
Gaines’ social media fundraising event will come to an end on Thursday midnight, August 26, and the star will be chopping off a chunk from his long and luscious mane for every milestone successfully achieved during the event. He will be revealing his final hair transformation look after this campaign ends.
During his appearance on ‘Today’ with better half Joanna, the author revealed some details about the status of his hair and the reason for grooming them long, sharing, “It’s like the rest of the country sadly in some ways, you know? Nobody can agree on anything. You’re either in this camp or this camp. Well, Twitter is very similar in that regard with my hair, it’s either you love this, or you hate it.”
Gaines added, “The back end of it is raising money and philanthropic. When the pandemic hit, it got a little longer and I was like, ‘I’m going to grow this out.’ I like to continue to bring in bucket lister-type situations in my life. And I was like, when I die I’m going to say, ‘You remember that season when I had that long hair?’ And when I’m bald as a bat here in a couple of months after we shave it, literally razor blade bald, then I’ll say, ‘I’ve never been bald before!’”
