This is such a worthy cause....unfortunately I'm not a good candidate, but I thought I'd share this in case you are, or you know someone who is and would be willing to share their locks for a woman undergoing cancer treatment.

 Hair donation event in Sydney CBD on Monday 12th  November 2012

Monday 12th  November will mark the launch of the inaugural Beautiful Lengths National Donate Your Hair Week in Australia kicking off with a hair donation event at Martin Place in Sydney CBD with Pantene ambassadors Barney Martin and Zoe Foster.

Beautiful Lengths is the first program of its kind in Australia to inspire women to grow, cut and donate their hair to be turned into real-hair wigs for women undergoing cancer treatment.

Alongside its charity partner Look Good...Feel Better, Pantene will be offering free haircuts with leading hairstylist and Beautiful Lengths ambassador, Barney Martin, and his team of expert hairdressers to the first 100 women who donate their hair.

Barney’s fellow Pantene ambassador, beauty expert, Zoe Foster, will be on hand to offer advice to the women donating their hair on styles and treatments.

A gift bag packed full of haircare products will be presented to every woman who makes the kindest cut and pledges her ponytail, and all donors will be in with a chance to meet Beautiful Lengths ambassador, Naomi Watts, when she arrives in Sydney on 15th November. 

In order to participate, hair donors must be able to travel to Martin Place for 8am on 12th November and have at least 20cm of hair to donate. 

To take part, please visit and complete the registration form.

Hair must also be less than 5% grey, and free from chemical treatments, hair extensions and permanent dye. A detailed list of donation requirements can be found at

Barney comments: “Some of my clients are currently undergoing cancer treatments and I have styled their wig for them. I have seen the effect losing hair has on a woman and it can be heartbreaking to watch them go through that.
20cm of hair may seem like a lot to cut off, but this summer short sleek styles are in and I can’t think of a better reason to update your look.

Beautiful Lengths is a way to help women with cancer feel like themselves again and it’s such a simple way to help – just pledge your ponytail!”

Anyone who wishes to donate their hair but cannot get to Sydney for the event on 12th November can find out how to hold their own donation party by downloading a party host pack from the Beautiful Lengths website.


  1. This should become as big as The Greatest Shave...a fantastic idea!

    Unfortunately I don't qualify...I'm 5% NOT grey, have more dye in my hair than the bottle it came in, and am just short of it being at least 20cm long. I can however confirm that all the DO's and DONT's they recommend I'm spot on with!

  2. Everyone loves it when folks come together and share opinions.
