University of Cincinnati Beautiful Lengths 2014
Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and American Cancer Society that uses ponytail donations of 8 or more inches in length to provide free, real-hair wigs to women with cancer. The loss of a woman's hair due to chemotherapy can be a traumatic experience that impacts her confidence and strength to fight the cancer. Many of these women can't afford a real-hair wig to make them feel beautiful again and regain that confidence. A donation to the Beautiful Lengths program can make all the difference to them.
The University of Cincinnati is hosting a free, hair-cutting event where anyone can come to donate their hair. There will be local stylists in attendance who have offered to finish off all donor's hair cuts.
Donation requirements - To be made into a wig, your hair must be:
1. At least 8 inches long (no maximum length!). Curly or wavy hair is measured when straight.
2. Free of permanent color, bleach, or other chemical treatments such as Japanese straightening. Vegetable dyes, semi-permanent dyes, and rinses are acceptable, but "virgin" hair is preferred.
3. No more than 5% gray.
Pledge to make the cut today!
I am not a UC student. Can I still attend?
Absolutely! This event is free and open to the public.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Yes. You must be 18 years or older to attend without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. If you are under 18, you must bring someone with you who can consent to your donation.
Can I bring people with me even if I'm over 18?
Regardless of your age, we encourage you to bring family and friends to help you make the cut! Everyone will make the cut together, so have someone you trust make the initial cut! (Don't worry, the stylists will clean it up and make it look great afterwards!)
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is free street parking available around campus (e.g. Calhoun Street, Clifton Ave) as well as several parking garages on campus (click the link for a map of the different options). The garages will cost you $5 to park for the whole day.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
We will be happy to respond to any and all questions on our Facebook page or through our dedicated email account (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Can I update my registration information?
Absolutely! You always log into your Eventbrite account and update your registration. Alternatively, you can email us with any changes to your registration, including cancellation, and we will happily fix your information for you.
