If the world is charitable enough, not only could we lose Hugh Acheson’s hughnibrow, but also Mario Batali’s strawberry blond ponytail. Batals has partnered with Food & Wine and nine of the country’s top chefs, like Jose Andres and Emeril Lagasse, for Chefs Make Change (CMC), a fund-raising campaign that launches today. If CMC can raise $500,000 for the Mario Batali Foundation by February 7, Molto says he will cut off his long, ginger locks. This leaves us with mixed feelings. Yay for charity, but Batali with a crew cut just feels too freaky. [HuffPo]
