Ready to Donate Your Hair?

Start by following the 3 simple steps below. Then fill out your Hair Donation form.

1. Start Your Donation with Hair Length

If you’re interested in donating your hair to kids in need, your first step is to set a length goal. While we accept hair donations of 12 inches or longer, we encourage you to donate 14+ inches of hair; the more length you can donate, the more of an impact you will make.

2. Get in Contact with a Hair Professional

We rely on talented hair professionals to properly cut the hair ponytails and braids that are then donated to Wigs For Kids. The professional you contact must follow these steps for cutting and donating your hair or ponytail. If you must use a salon outside of our locations, please read our detailed instructions here. You can find an excellent Hair Donation Specialist by clicking the “Find a Specialist” button below.

3. Send in Your Hair Donation

Place the dry ponytail in a sealed Ziploc bag and then inside a sealed envelope addressed to:

Wigs For Kids — Hair Donations
24231 Center Ridge Road
Westlake, Ohio 44145



Get Your Donation Barcode

Are you ready to donate? Click on the button below to fill out our Hair Donation form.

Please consider adding a small financial donation to help Wigs For Kids with the cost of hair processing, services, and hair replacements (which average $1800 yearly per child). Any amount helps us get closer to helping a child. You can make your financial donation on the Hair Donation form by selecting “Include Monetary Donation” from the drop-down menu.

If you use our online Hair Donation form and include a print out of your barcode with the donation, you can expect a thank you within 60 days of Wigs For Kids receiving your ponytail.

If you fill out a paper form without a barcode, you can expect a thank you within 4-6 months of Wigs For Kids receiving your hair. We truly appreciate your donation and will do our best to send a thank you as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience and your donation!
