      Hi Lisa,

      Right now, no salons in Texas are participating. But if you know of any salons that would like to be part of National Donate Your Hair Day, send them our way! Also, you can always go to your salon on April 27th and donate your hair. Even if the salon isn’t on this list.

        Hi Misty,

        If you want to donate your hair on April 27th at a salon that is not on this list, you just have to let them know that you are donating your hair. Since there are certain steps they will need to take. For example, your hair donation will need to be in bound ponytail before you can send it in. But you can still make a donation, even if your salon is not on this list!

        Let me know if you have any questions

  1. Robin Fuller

    I have 3 ponytails saved to donate and are all approximately 12′ in length each. Do you have an address where I can mail them to on my own. There is not a salon close to me that is participating.

I am planing on donating, but since ohio is not participating i was thinking about making a vacation out of it and going somewhere else. If you know of any ohio salons participating please let me know!

        Hi Anna,

        I love the idea of making a vacation out of it! But you don’t need to — unless you really want to. Even if your salon is not listed in this official list, you can still donate your hair at your regular salon. Just let them know if advance that you are donating your hair on April 27. They may even give you a discount!

        However, we have new salons coming in ever day. So keeping checking back :)

      Hi Debbie,

      Your salon does not have to be on this list to make a donation. You can go to your usual salon on Long Island on April 27th and let them know that you are donating your hair. They might give you a discount since you are donating!

    Is there a set of guidelines posted anywhere for if you get it cut at your own salon? I definitely have 8 inches to spare (more like 16!) and think this might just be the kick I need to finally do it!

    Are there any other requirements besides the length (8-inch minimum)? My hair is long enough but it has been highlighted in the past. Is that going to be a problem? I really hope it’s not because I really would love to do this!!! :o)

    Thanks a bunch,

      Hi barb,

      Unfortunately your hair cannot be treated with permanent or semi-permanent dye. However, lots of women grow out their highlights then donate. So that could be an option, too!

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

        Hi Clare,

        If we have had highlights (say over 2 years ago and they have sinced grown out) can we still donate the hair that has not been highlighted? I have some layers anyway so I believe I will need to donate multiple ponytails, which I have done the last two times I donated. I have well over 8 inches of hair most of which is entirely highlight free so I just want to make sure I am still able to donate most of it, if not all of it. Please let me know, thank you so much!

        Austin

      2. Beautiful Lengths Post author

        Hi Austen!

        I think that is totally fine! As long as the hair you donate is highlight free that is perfectly fine.

        Thank you for your donation!

    I’ve been growing out my hair for a little over a year in order to donate it. I live in El Dorado Hills, California 95762 and I’m disappointed to see there aren’t any participating salons in the California area. I know I can still go to any participating salon, but I’m 16 and salon cuts can be kind of pricey. How can I find out if any close by salons are participating? Is NDYHD known fairly well around the U.S.?

      Hi There!

      How wonderful to hear that you would like to donate your hair. Many salons will give a discount if you let them know in advance that you are donating your hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

      I would call your local salon, let them know the wonderful thing you are doing, and ask if they will discount your haircut!

      Let me know if you have any questions.

      You daughter can donate her hair at any salon. We recommend donors call the salon in advance to let them know they will be donating their hair. But any stylist can do the haircut. You are just responsible for sending the hair in. Please follow this link for the address to send the hair to: http://www.pantene.com/en-US/beautiful-lengths-cause/pages/how-to-make-the-cut.aspx

      Sure to send us photos once your daughter makes the cut! We would love to hear about it.

    Hi, I have a question. Donating my hair is in my bucket list and I want to do it for a good cause. Although I really want to donate my hair is in layers. I have seen two comments that pertain to my subject yet they do not answer my question. Would I have to seperate it into several pony tails that measure out to be 8 inches or can I tie it into a single pony tail and measure it out to be 8 inches. I only ask because cutting it in the latter way would mean some of the pieces would be shorter than 8 inches. Please answer my question so I can donate. :)

    Reply
    1. Beautiful Lengths Post author

      Hi Natalia,

      Most women separate their hair into a few ponytails before donating while others donate one large ponytail. It is really your preference. As long as the majority of you hair is eight inches, the shorter pieces will not be an issue.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Are there any Hair Salons in the San Diago area that are still participating in Locks of Love. My daughter just moved to the area. Seven years ago she donated her ponytail but it was in a different state. She would like to have her hair cut as soon as possible, and wants to donate when she does. Thank you for any information you can give us.
