“To us, it’s hair, but to women with cancer, it’s hope.” Perhaps you have heard this phrase before in an ad for Beautiful Lengths. Beautiful Lengths is a collaboration between Pantene and the American Cancer Society.
Since 2006, Beautiful Lengths has provided more than 24,000 real-hair wigs to women with cancer. Each wig takes at least eight ponytails to make.
You can donate a ponytail here on Tuesday, April 30. Students from Metro Academy will be in the TCC Alcove A from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. to cut and style hair. Walk-ins are welcome.
To donate, your ponytail must be at least 8 inches long. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored, or chemically treated, but it can be colored with semi-permanent dyes.
If you want to wait, you can also donate your hair anytime by mailing it to
