Donate hair to Wigs For Kids
KidSnips partners with Wigs For Kids to make hair donations to children experiencing hair loss so they can look themselves and live their lives.
Donating hair is a great way to get a haircut AND teach your child the importance of giving back. If you or your child would like to make a hair donation, call your local KidSnips to schedule a weekday donation appointment. Wigs for Kids donors pay the regular kid’s haircut, or adult haircut price.
For a donation haircut, hair must be non-chemically processed, cleaned, dried and detangled with a minimum of 12 inches in length to donate. During the appointment, we’ll separate hair into sections, cut it, and then give you a stylish haircut. We’ll handle getting the hair to Wigs For Kids and there’s even a hair donor certificate to show how thankful we are to be helping kids.
Everyone who donates hair gets a $5 coupon for their next haircut.

Took my daughter for a haircut today. She had been growing it out for 6 months to donate to children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. The employees could not have been more kind during the process… … They also assigned her a wonderful stylist to give her a cut. Again, at no charge. The stylist did not rush—she took her time to make sure my daughter was happy. Oh, and did I mention the place was packed? Every chair was full, and a lot of people were waiting. But they were patient and took their time with her. They made a huge deal out of her donation and gave her a certificate for her donation. I will definitely be back, not just for a hair donation, but for haircuts for the kids, and maybe myself, too!
Note: they have a wonderful selection of toys, too! At reasonable prices!
