Client Hair Donation to Little Princess Trust!

Our amazing client Lisa Marie Shields attended yesterday to have her hair cut by our students and donated to the Little Princess Trust! 

Lisa's hair was in excellent condition and was over 7 inches long, uncoloured too so was ideal to be donated.  Lisa has so far raised £135.00 which is absolutely fantastic.  If anyone would like to donate to Lisa follow this link

For anyone interested in donating hair to the Princess Trust we have copied the information from their website.  See blow for details and links-

Hair that The Princess Trust can use -
  • All hair donated to us must be in excellent condition
  • Our greatest demand is for hair donations of 16-inches or longer.
  • We have a current shortage of these longer lengths which make our most popular 12-inch long wigs.
  • The minimum length of hair that we can accept is 7inches/17cm. However, we do currently have sufficient stock of hair measuring between 7 and 11 inches, and that is why we encourage all our supporters to donate hair that measures 12 inches and above. Frequent donations of the shorter lengths could bring storage costs to the charity and we, understandably, would prefer to use our resources to provide wigs to children and fund vital research into childhood cancers.
  • Clean, dry hair, from any gender (please do not send us wet hair - it will not dry properly and is not usable)
  • Great condition (no split ends) and of any natural colour
  • Straight, wavy or chemically straightened
  • Curly hair – please see our curl chart guidelines in our FAQs for further information
  • Grey hair - we can accept hair with limited amounts of grey content. Find out more

Sorry, we cannot use hair that is…

  • Less than 7”/17cm long
  • Dyed an unnatural colour (blue, purple, etc)
  • Hair that has been dyed using semi-permanent dye
  • Henna-dyed hair
  • Dreadlocks cannot be used in our wigs.  Part of the preparation to blend hair donations together involves combining individual strands of hair.  All hair must be able to be combed to separate these individual hairs
  • Hair extensions.
  • Very tightly curled hair - our wig maker is not a specialist in working with tightly curled hair.  We do supply tightly curled wigs by either curling the hair after the wig has been made, or by using a specialist supplier. 
  • Don't despair if you can't donate your hair there's other way to donate

Cutting & donating your hair

  • Wash and DRY your hair (we cannot accept wet hair - it does not dry in the post and will not be suitable if you have dried it after cutting on a radiator or other heat source)
  • Do not use conditioner or styling products
  • Put your dry hair into a ponytail/s
  • Secure at both ends with a hair band, and one halfway down
  • Ask your hairdresser to cut above the top band
  • Put the cut ponytail/s into a cardboard or heavyweight paper envelope
  • Include your completed Hair Donation Slip
