WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE/DONATE THROUGH OUR SALON?
There is a minimum length requirement - hair must be 10 inches from tip to tip in order to be usable for a hairpiece.
We offer complimentary ‘Locks of Love’ haircuts. If you wish to donate your hair and take advantage of the complimentary haircut, please call us at 785-843-0044 in order to make an appointment for a ‘Locks of Love’ haircut. We perform these complimentary haircuts Monday thru Thursday, and such service must be scheduled as ‘Locks of Love’ haircut in order to be complimentary. If you choose during any other type of service to donate your hair, we will gladly keep it and mail it to Locks of Love ~ however, you’d still be responsible for the cost of the service. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call us at the number above.
