The big day... the haircut! Prior to Covid-19, some salons cut hair for free and restyled it for you once they knew you were donating the hair. However, since the pandemic, this may have changed. So, just contact your local salons and ask if they would be willing to cut your hair for a good cause.  

LauraLynn do not have a list of recommended salons on file. 

Yes! Just follow these steps:  

  • Wash hair and dry thoroughly. Do not use conditioner or styling products. Put hair into ponytail/s. 
  • Secure ponytail/s at both ends with a hair band, and one halfway down (or at regular intervals for longer hair). Get it cut above the top band. 
  • Place the cut hair inside a recyclable cardboard or heavyweight paper envelope. Include your completed Hair Donation Slip - www.littleprincesses.org.uk/Documents/Hair-Donation-Form-1.pdf. Have your envelope weighed to ensure the correct postage. 
  • Post the envelope with the hair and donation slip to: The Little Princess Trust, Broadway House, 32-35 Broad Street, Hereford. HR4 9AR. UK.  
  • Do not post your hair to LauraLynn!
