What is Share Your Hair?
During Fall and Winter, BYU female students can donate their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, who make wigs and donate them to women, free of charge, through the American Cancer Association. A stylist will cut and style your hair for you right here on campus! In the 2018 Winter Semester, we had 75 donors and 125 donations that contributed to 15 wigs!
For Winter 2019, the event will be in February. Stay tuned for the specific dates!
You must be able to donate at least 8 inches, and hair cannot be bleached or dyed and must be less than 5% grey. Walk-ins are welcome, although pre-scheduled appointments will be given priority. You can schedule an appointment here.
If you cannot make it to our event but would still like to donate your hair, you can get it cut at anytime and drop off the hair donation at the Y-Serve office to be donated!

I'm currently a videographer for Y-Serve and I had the opportunity to film one of Share Your Hair's service week events. I worked with the ED and PDs to plan and be at the event, and it was an awesome experience. Those running the program are motivated, and everyone who comes to participate is incredibly generous! I met a girl who went from long hair to a pixie cut and the volunteer who was cutting her hair was not only talented, but also incredibly helpful along the way, helping her when she got nervous! It was so awesome to see them two get along and accomplish a single goal from two different sides.
