It’s Easy to Take For Granted
Imagine if you couldn’t grow hair. It can be easy to take for granted, but there are millions of children who can’t grow their own hair.
From understanding what’s happening, to coping with social acceptance, the effects of medically-related hair loss go far deeper than cosmetic. For children in particular, too often friends become bullies and casual glances become uncomfortable stares, filling even the most common everyday activities with fear.
Whether it’s from alopecia, cancer treatment or other causes, kids with hair loss often hope for normalcy in life. The problem is, a human hair replacement with proper care and maintenance can cost up to $5,000 a year.
For most families, it’s an expense they cannot afford.
Covering Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts
That’s why we’ve partnered with Children With Hair Loss, who provide real hair replacements to children facing cancer treatments, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and other medically-related hair loss.
Focused on the whole need of each child, Children With Hair Loss provides each recipient with free, customized human hair replacements & care kits annually until age 21.
They’re the only organization of their kind that provides all their products and services completely free of charge, with no hidden fees, financial reporting or required appearances.
In 2017 Children With Hair Loss provided 569 children with hair replacements and care kits, all at zero cost to the families. They are making a difference for thousands of children, but doing it all without charging a dime requires a lot of hair—and a lot of financial support.
So It’s A Good Thing...
...Longhairs Do Care, our charity partnership where we donate $1 for every sale to Children With Hair Loss.
You see, the hair replacements can cost up to $5,000 a pop. In addition to collecting enough hair to make a wig—which can require hair donations from up to eight people—Children With Hair Loss also has to pay to get it manufactured.
So far The Longhairs has donated over $15K to cover young heads, which is a lotta Hair Ties For Guys, but together…we can do more.

THE GREAT CUT GOALS
