Son Helps Dad Donate 26” of Hair

November 3, 2020

This month, we are thrilled to introduce you to our adventurous friend Zach from Salina, Utah. Zach loves being outdoors, working in the garage, and riding his motorcycle. When he’s not hanging out with his wife and three year old son Lux, you can find Zach at their family business, Fin’s Paddle Board Rentals, where they rent out inflatable paddle boards!

When Zach’s hair started getting long, friends and family began asking how long he was going to let it grow. From all the interest, he got the idea to make a hair donation and his sister introduced him to Wigs for Kids! When he was ready for the big cut, he went to his local barber Devin at Conviction Barber, who gave him a fresh, clean cut. Zach brought his wife and son along for the ride, and Lux even got to snip the first strand! 

Zach was able to donate six ponytails that were 26 inches long. He loved learning about the whole process to make a wig and loves that the length of his hair is so beneficial to making a wig for a new recipient!

Check out Lux cutting Zach’s hair in this sweet video! Thank you, Zach, for your generous donation!
