Donating Your Hair

Thank You For Considering To Donate Your Beautiful Hair To Our Children's Charity. 

Did you know it takes around 300grams of hair (8-10 pony tails) to fill a full lace wig. so as you can imagine we need all the help we can get.

Please read the following checklist below to ensure your hair can be used.

Your lovely locks can be recycled to create our children's hair systems, wigs, hats and headbands so thank you from the bottom of hearts.

Booking Your Hair Cut 

  • You can either book your hair donation appointment at our salon in Manchester. Please visit, click LittleLadyLocks option and then pick the hair donation option.

  • OR if you prefer you can get it done at a salon local to you. 

  • If you are booking in with a local salon near you please inform them that you are wanting to donate your hair, as the stylist may need longer booked out of their diary.

  • Please ask your hairdresser to secure your hair with a hairband, and cut the hair just above the hairband. Braid the hair and secure the other end, as this stops the hair from getting tangled.
