National Donate Your Hair Day is April 27

If your looking for any reason at all to cut your hair or give back to your community than take the time to partner with Pantene and 17 Magazine as part of their first National Donate Your Hair Day on April 27.  National Donate Your Hair Day is  benefiting the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. This will be the first annual day of giving where people nationwide are encouraged to cut and donate their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Created in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths inspires people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.  To date, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has received more than 311,000 hair donations from generous men, women, and children and more than 18,000 real-hair wigs have been provided to female cancer patients.
In celebration of the inaugural National Donate Your Hair Day, Pantene and Seventeen Magazine will host an event on April 27 at the Rita Hazan Salon in New York City. Pantene Celebrity Hair Stylist Danilo will also be at the salon to support the hair donors and lend his voice to the program.
If you  live in the NYC area who would like to donate 8-inches of healthy hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, you are invited to attend an event at the Rita Hazan Salon.  You will can make an appointment anytime from 12pm – 6pm on April 27 for a free cut and style with a top stylist – all they need to do is send an email with your preferred appointment time to  The Pantene team will email you back with availability and confirm your appointment!
This is also a great opportunity for you and your kids if you are interested in donating your hair!
In addition to the New York City event, salons nationwide will be participating by hosting their own events and offering discounted or free haircuts to those donating on this day.   A list of participating salons can be found at
The requirements to donate hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths are:
  1. Each hair donation must be at least 8 inches long.
  2. Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated.
  3. Gray hair is difficult to use in the wig-making process, so hair may not be more than 5% gray at the time of donation.

    Many local hair salons will cut your hair for free on any day of the year if you’re donating it to a program like Locks of Love. Do what I did and find the priciest, fanciest salon in your area that participates and make an appointment there. It was like I was splurging on myself, except I didn’t spend a dime. 🙂

  2. Do you know of any salons in Northwest Indiana that participate in Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths donation program? Thanks!
