New Hair Donation Process!

October 4, 2018

Wondering how to donate your hair? Read below to learn more about the Wigs for Kids new donation process. You will find step by step instructions to lead you through your entire donation journey!

Start with Hair Length

If you’re interested in donating your hair, 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.

Get in Contact with a 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.

Where to Send Your Hair Donation

Mail the hair with the required hair donation form (linked below) in a sealed envelope or a small shipping box (special containers or insurance are not necessary) to:

Wigs for Kids — Hair Donations

24231 Center Ridge Road

Westlake, Ohio 44145


Please consider adding a small financial donation in with your hair to help Wigs For Kids with hair processing and/or helping to offset the $1800 cost of the hair replacement system.

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 30 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 3-4 months of Wigs For Kids receiving your hair. Thank you for your donation!


If you or a loved one is experiencing hair thinning or hair loss, learn more about solutions available to you on the Jeffrey Paul Blog.
