Wigs have incredible power to make you feel confident and beautiful. I know because I have seen it and my customers have told me about their own experiences. No matter what brought you to wearing wigs, putting one on can instantly change your attitude. (We all have that one sassy wig, right?! I can’t be the only one.)

On April 27th, National Donate Your Hair Day, two of our employees volunteered to cut and donate their hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.
Pantene created and funded the Beautiful Lengths program in 2006 with the American Cancer Society to help make real-hair wigs for women living with cancer. This year, Seventeen Magazine and Pantene teamed up to host the first-ever national event to encourage women and men to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair.
More than 18,000 wigs have been provided to cancer patients thanks to Pantene's program. We’re extremely happy to be part of this selfless movement to help those in need.
Watch this video to see our Wigs.com employees make the kindest cut of all.

When we heard about the first-ever nationwide call to chop off our locks for someone who has lost their hair to cancer treatments, we were happy to see the awareness reach a national level. We were ecstatic when we found out two employees from the Wigs.com family were willing to participate! Donating hair for wigs is a wonderful opportunity for us to give back and help those who need it the most. Participating is important to Wigs.com because we want to set an example by supporting the first national day designated to donate hair for wigs.
National Donate Hair Day
Pantene and Seventeen Magazine teamed up to host this first national event which will benefit the Beautiful Lengths program. For those of you who don’t know, Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society that encourages women (and men) to grow, cut and donate hair to make wigs for cancer patients. The hair donated today will be used to craft beautiful, high-quality wigs by HAIRUWEAR®. This company manufactures wigs for brands like Raquel Welch®, Gabor and Hairdo among many others.
Why Donate Hair for Wigs?
As we all know, human hair doesn't grow on trees, so the demand for human hair wigs is extremely high - donating your hair is a great way to help those women in need. We encourage all of you to make the ‘kindest cut of all’ and help make a difference. So please, think about it & donate hair!
If your hair is too short at the moment (8 inches minimum), you have a whole year to grow it!

Donate Hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths FAQ’s
How long must my hair be to donate?
The ponytail must be at least 8 inches long (no maximum length). Although some charities will accept less than 8 inches, these ponytails cannot be used effectively to make a wig.
If your hair is wavy or curly, measure it when straight.
Can I donate dyed or color treated hair?
Pantene Beautiful Lengths requires “virgin” hair, this means hair that is free of permanent color, bleach or other chemical treatments such as Japanese straightening. Since each ponytail comes from a different person with a different shade of hair, it is important to absorb dyes at the same rate in order to create a wig of the same shade of color. Only virgin hair can be processed and then dyed to the same shade.
The same goes for gray hair – no more than 5% gray hair is recommended. It is harder to color and, once colored, fades more quickly.

This week, Wigs.com donated a dozen wigs for a The Glamour Squad event that we attended. This event took place at a local children’s hospital – Medical City of Dallas, Texas - in which young patients from the hospital received makeovers and had a day all about them.The Glamour Squad organization was started in part by Jenna Owens (above photo, far left). Jenna is best known as a radio personality on KISS FM’s Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. The young girls who attended the event are bravely living with and enduring cancer and other illnesses. For many of them, day-to-day life can be stressful, painful and certainly not fun. The Glamour Squad was a chance for these beautiful girls to be pampered, feel pretty & escape for some much-needed and well-deserved fun.
This day of pampering included facials, makeup, and manicures. The girls even got their hair done by professional hairstylists, or they received a brand new wig from Wigs.com. Of course there were portraits taken and gift baskets too.
Wigs.com’s CEO and owner, Carliz Sotelo Teague attended the event and remembers the words of one lovely girl on her spa day - “This is the best day I’ve ever had!” Also to attend was Wigs.com associate Brian Rutledge. “Some people might take the little things for granted,” Rutledge said. “But not these kids. It was clear that this day meant a lot to these girls, and I came away with a new respect for the everyday stuff.”
Our hearts were certainly full after meeting the inspiring young ladies on the day made just for them with The Glamour Squad. Stay tuned for more Community Outreach and philanthropic efforts from Wigs.com – The Wig Experts.
