Have you ever wondered what happens to your hair extensions when the time comes
for them to be taken out? Now there is a way to generate new life out of your
Great Lengths extensions - and support a very special cause at the same time.
We are delighted to reveal that the Little Princess Trust has exclusively agreed
to accept donations of Great Lengths hair extensions, for use in their real hair
wigs for boys and girls across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair
through cancer treatment and alopecia.
The Little Princess Trust is the only UK and Ireland based charity to work with specialist wig suppliers and hair stylists to tailor wigs to each individual to help restore their own style and confidence, as much as possible.
The collaboration began when James Henderson, owner of M Hair Nottingham, read about the amazing work of the Little Princess Trust and wanted to do something to help.
‟I noticed that so much high quality hair was being removed every day, and thought how this could really make a difference to children′s lives if the hair could be used for wigs. I then decided to approach the Little Princess Trust with the concept of re-using Great Lengths hair extensions as hair donations ̶ I am totally in awe of the great work they do, and I am truly honoured to be able help′ said James.
Monica Glass, Charity Manager at the Little Princess Trust, said: ′Hair loss can
be very traumatic at any age, but particularly for young people who may already
be experiencing a very difficult time. The fact that Great Lengths only uses
100% human hair for its enhancements was a key reason for us to work with them ̶
we know that using good quality, human hair is the only way to achieve a
realistic look for the young people that we support. We would ask that salons
encourage all clients to look after their hair extensions so that they have the
best possible chance of being donated and manufactured into wigs for the
children and young adults that we assist.′
