We advise you 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 Form (which is also in your pack). Have your envelope weighed to ensure the correct postage. 
  • Post the envelope with the hair and donation form to the wig charity of your choice: The Little Princess Trust, The Hannah Tarplee Building, 22-25 Berrington Street, Hereford 
  • HR4 0BJ, UK  or The Rapunzel Foundation, Corefegix, 4th Floor, Marine Point, Belview Port, Waterford, X91 WOXW

The Little Princess Trust only accept 'Great Lengths' hair extensions, which have to come from their head office. The reason is because Little Princess Trust know that their hair has been ethically obtained, and they only send 16” and longer. So, we're afraid Little Princess Trust do not accept any other types/brand of hair extensions.
