DONATE HAIR Please Note: Anyone can cut your hair as long as the guidelines listed below are followed. We encourage all of our donors to go to a salon they are already familiar with to ensure their comfort when donating.
GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTABLE DONATIONS Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable. Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid. Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist. Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable. Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails. Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches. 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece. Please Note: Hair that is 6-10 inches in length will be accepted and sold at fair market value to offset the manufacturing costs. Although the shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces, it still greatly helps to reduce costs. Gray hair will be accepted and sold at fair market value to offset the manufacturing costs.
HOW TO DONATE
10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece. Hair must be in a ponytail or braid before it is cut. Hair must be clean and completely dry before it is mailed in. Place the ponytail or braid inside of a plastic bag, and then inside of a padded envelope. Fill out the hair donation form, or write your name and address on a separate sheet of paper and include inside the envelope. All hair donations must be mailed to Locks of Love at:
