BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
Join The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce and The American Cancer Society as we donate our ponytails to Pantene Beautiful Lengths to help support women during the toughest fight of their lives.
The Cause: One in three women will develop some form of cancer in her lifetime making it abundantly clear that cancer will affect each one of us in some way. Hair loss, one of the most common side effects of cancer treatment, can be especially traumatic for a woman fighting cancer.
The Hair: It takes approximately eight to twelve ponytails to make a single real-hair wig. The number of free wigs that will become available depends solely on the number of ponytail donations received – so please join us in growing and donating your hair! All qualifying donated ponytails will be transformed into free, high-quality wigs for women undergoing cancer treatment. Who knew a haircut could mean so much? Please note that to make the most durable, beautiful wigs possible, donated hair must be a minimum of eight inches in length and have no more than a few strands of gray. Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses or semi-permanent dyes, but cannot have been bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated.
The Event: Urban Betty Salon Stylists will provide our donors with the royal treatment of wash, cut, dry & optional styling. If you can’t or choose not to donate hair, feel free to join us on the patio for a beverage in a show of support for donors and Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
More details on securing a time slot with a stylist will be sent to registrants closer to the event date!
