Singer Kellie Pickler has shaved her head for a cause: her best friend.

Childhood buddy Summer Holt Miller had been diagnosed with breast cancer, so Pickler and she went under the clippers together. The two women -- both of whom had flowing blonde hair -- revealed their new crops Wednesday on "Good Morning America."

In a statement on Pickler's Facebook page, Miller is referred to as a "sister" who was diagnosed, at age 36, with cancer in June.

Pickler hinted about the head shaving Monday, tweeting, "Be sure to watch 'Good Morning America' tomorrow morning (Sept 5th). You won't want to miss this!!! ;)"

And the Twittersphere sent the love right back, with Ellen DeGeneres tweeting to Pickler, "You have never looked more beautiful."
