Cut Your Hair, Save The World + Feel Like A Celeb!
I often joke that the beauty industry may not be saving lives – but sometimes it does just that.
What can I say, I have my master’s in human rights, have worked in East Africa, and had dreams of charging the UN in the name of women’s rights – and while I think TheBeautyBean.com does a lot to empower women and promote positive body image, I’m acutely aware of the limits lipstick has in changing the world.
Where lipstick has limits, though, your hair is a whole other story.
Well, if you PonyUp anyway!
Turns out, you can both get in on the latest hair trends (shoulder-length bobs, pixie cuts and more!) and help to improve the quality of life for women fighting cancer, all at the same time.
Oh, and you can have a celebrity stylist cut your new ‘do too!
Join Pantene for the second annual National Donate Your Hair Day on September 7, 2013 as they help you to grow long, strong, beautiful hair and to turn your donated hair cut into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer, respectively. This unifying day of giving encourages people to cut and donate their healthy hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program to make free real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments To date, Pantene has donated 28,000 free real-hair wigs to the American Cancer Society’s wig banks, which distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country – and now you can help too!
