A neighbor of mine told me she thought if you cut off and donated your hair to Locks of Love that a hairdresser will cut and style it for free. I can't find any information on this. On the Locks for Love website they said the only way to tell if a salon participates is if there is a LOL logo in the window. Granted I can have this done anywhere, but if I could get a could new do somewhere and not have to pay bug bucks...why not! Can anywhere fill me in on their salon or experience?

When I tried finding one through their site, I came up with nothing.

It is still a great gesture. You need to donate 10 inches of your hair. Wigs will be made for children going through chemo or other hair loss. One of our priests let his hair grow so he could donate it. It was real thick and wavy so someone got a nice wig. I'm still trying to get mine to the right length. Darn split ends keep causing problems.

My daughter did it a few years ago, but not in OK. She got a really nice new do for free for the donation. Go through the phone book and start calling not just salons but stylists as well.

Default Off with the hair!

I did it!! I cut off more than 12 inches from my hair. I decided to donate my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths Hair Program. I found this program by Googling "hair donations." I didn't find a hair dresser to do it for free (I didn't really care to search, nor did the free matter)...but the cut that came as a result is simply wonderful! It's the best haircut and style I have ever had!!! So it ended up being a win-win for me. I went for Anne Hathaway's new short do!

I had someone pm me a website on Locks of Love Locks of Love. After reading what it had to say about LOL, I decided to search for an alternate program to donate to. Thus, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program http://www.beautifullengths.com/en_U...lpingwomen.jsp.

Good for you for donating your hair! I'm glad you're happy with your new "do" also. Thanks for posting that info on Locks of Love. Very interesting.

Cottonwood spa does the locks of love... Welcome to Cottonwood Salon Spa Has it on thier website right on the front page. Not sure if they give you a free cut, but have been told they do. They are off of 33rd, between Broadway and Blvd, in Edmond.

But since you already had yours done it wont help you much... Maybe it will help someone else though.

I have looked Everywhere trying to find a place where i can donate my hair to locks of love. I have good thick curly blonde hair and i know it will make a good wig for someone who needs it for medical purposes. I'm worried going to a salon who may say that they will donate the hair to a good cause, but nowadays the hair market has changed and there is a large demand for wigs by women who are just to lazy to style their own hair, and i know this sounds dumb but i have carried around this mop for a long time and i don't want it to end up as extensions on someone's head who lives in the West Coast. I don't Understand why more information isn't out there on places that work with the locks of love organization. I'm just about to say forgetaboutit but i have 12 inches plus it will be a shame to just throw it away when it could do so much good for someone..

Did some research and came up with two salons in NoVA. Check out Bristles & Shears in Sterling or Tranquility Day Spa in Haymarket. My husband is finally ready to donate and only feels comfortable going to a place familiar with the locks of love guidelines. Also, a free haircut doesn't hurt either!

Well, considering this is posted on the Oklahoma City forum, I'm thinking that free haircut in NoVa, wouldn't be too free by the time they traveled half way across the country just to get it.
