"Okay lets section this baby off," said the sorority sister getting Marisssa Aranda ready.
"You just take that and you go like that," she tells 12-year-old Elijah who gets the main honor.
"I love my hair," said Aranda, "But I don't feel it makes me," she said.
A pre-shaved headed Aranda said she's anxious but excited.
"I feel like it's the least I can do to help out," she said. "If I can change someone's life in any kind of way.
All to help children like Elijah.
"Elijah has stage four nuroblastoma," said his mother Dawn Talley. "At age four and he's been in treatment over 8 years now."
She herself is no stranger to having her head shaved for the cause.
"Kind of like the bald leading the bald instead of the blind leading the blind," she said and gave some advice to Aranda, like that lipstick and big earrings help.
"She is so stunningly beautiful, " Talley said. "She doesn't need my advice at all."
The 20-year-old with a face that shines, with or without hair, turns 21 tomorrow.
