Need For Hair Donations
Beaners Fun Cuts is pleased to assist customers wanting to donate their hair. After growing your hair out for a long time, you or your child might be looking for a change. If you’re considering chopping your long locks off, why not donate your hair for a good cause?
For some people, including children, hair loss can be a real challenge, and many conditions can cause hair loss. A change in appearance can impact an individual’s self-confidence, and we feel privileged to service customers wanting to help others through donations. Wigs and hairpieces can be costly, and many organizations try to ease this cost by finding people willing to donate hair.
Did you know it takes on average 10 – 12 ponytails and $1,000 to make one hair prosthesis?
How To Donate Your Hair
To best assist you, here are some general guidelines that will make the process easier. It is best to call in the appointment and mention the hair donation. Our staff will ask clarifying questions and want to determine if you need assistance with forwarding your donated hair to an organization or wanting us to coordinate.
For your hair to be eligible for donation, the hair must be clean and dry and be at least 12” in length (curly hair needs to stretch flat to 12”). Hair that is bleached or permed cannot be donated. Hair that is slightly coloured may be donated.
When you arrive at Beaners, the hair will be gathered into a ponytail and cut above the rubber band. Unfortunately, hair collected off the ground is unable to be donated.
Where To Donate Hair
If you want Beaners to donate the hair on your behalf, we will donate the hair to Canadian-based A Child’s Voice Foundation, Angel Hair For Kids.
Angel Hair For Kids relies on hair and monetary donations to make custom hair replacements that look like a child’s natural hair for kids who have lost their hair due to cancer, alopecia or other medical illnesses.
How Can We Thank You?
Following your donation, we’d like to acknowledge and recognize you for positively impacting someone else by providing a certificate of appreciation. We appreciate that our clients are so giving and want to make a positive impact for others.
We’d also love to inspire others by capturing the moment and have a picture taken to share on social media if consented.
