To What (Beautiful) Lengths

Paula Wesson, Lifestyles Editor

“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
