Does Chip Gaines need to do anything else to make us love him more? From his happy go lucky and often jokester attitude to his love for helping people restore homes, we think he’s pretty perfect!

Many fixer upper fans think he’s just as wonderful as us but after a notorious poll it was decided that fans didn’t love his long hair that he would often wear in a man bun.

Last week Chip took to social media to announce he knew his fans “hated” his hairstyle. He really wanted them to prove just how much telling them, “Now is the time to put your money where your mouth is.”



It’s come to my attention that most of you hate my current hairstyle. But how MUCH do you hate it? Now’s the time to put your money where your mouth is. ⠀ ⠀ So here’s the deal: Next week, Jo and I are visiting the beautiful kids at Target House with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. No family ever pays @StJude for treatment, travel or food—so basically, we want to bring them a giant check from YOU to help cover costs—lets come together to do something big to bless these kiddos. ⠀ ⠀ Donate to @StJude through the link in my profile, and the more money we raise over the next FOUR days, the shorter my hair goes. That’s a promise. And, who knows, maybe if you really exceed my expectations…I’ll buzz it all off. #OperationHaircut

Chip promised that donations made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would determine how much of his locks would be cut. Even jokingly adding: “And who knows, maybe if you really exceed my expectation…I’ll buzz it all off.”

Well, it appears that Chip followers took this as no joke and they REALLY did exceed Chip’s expectations! When Chip and Joanna visited St. Jude’s Target Hospital in Memphis, he buzzed his head!

Of course for this loving couple it wasn’t about the hair. “We are leaving Memphis changed,” Joanna wrote alongside the picture she shared on Instagram. “Kiddos of @stjude we go with your faces on our minds and your stories in our hearts. Thank you for letting us be a part of your home at Target House. We are cheering you on every step of the way.”

Well, gosh you’ve done it again, Chip. We are all swooning and you are doing good for others. Love your new haircut!
