About Beautiful Lengths: Created in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths inspires people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. To date, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has received more than 311,000 hair donations from generous men, women, and children and more than 18,000 real-hair wigs have been provided to female cancer patients.

In celebration of the inaugural National Donate Your Hair Day, Pantene and Seventeen Magazine will host an event on April 27 at the Rita Hazan Salon in New York City. Pantene Celebrity Hair Stylist Danilo will also be at the salon to support the hair donors and lend his voice to the program.

If YOU live in the NYC area and would like to donate 8-inches of healthy hair, Pantene invites you to attend their inaugural event at Rita Hazan! Appointment can be set up anytime from 12pm – 6pm on April 27 for a free cut and style with one of their skilled stylists – just send an email with your preferred appointment time to [email protected]. The Pantene team will email you back directly with availability and confirm their appointment!

A list of participating salons nationwide can be found at HERE.

The requirements to donate hair are as follows:

– Each hair donation must be at least 8 inches long.
– Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated.
– Gray hair is difficult to use in the wig-making process, so hair may not be more than 5% gray at the time of donation.

PS: If you plan to donate your hair, enter Seventeen and Pantene’s sweepstakes to have it done in high style in New York City! Tell them why you would like to donate your hair to be entered to win a trip to New York, including one-night stay and event-day car transportation. You’ll get $100 spending cash and a haircut/makeover with a Pantene stylist!
