COVID-19 UPDATE

During this time we are still accepting hair donations, the support of our fundraisisers is more important now than it ever has been and we thank you for standing with us. If you have any questions please contact the Hair with Heart team on 0408 762 694 and we'd be happy to assist. 

How it Works

Chop

Commit to chopping your hair, set the date and get ready to help give kids a fair go.

Wigs

Your hair will be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a long-term medical condition.

Fundraise

Rally the support of friends and family to help you on your Hair with Heart journey, and raise money for kids in need.

Kids

Money raised will help kids living with disability, chronic illness and disadvantage.

Get Started

Step 1

Is your hair ready for the big chop?

We are chuffed that you want to help others but we do have some guidelines.

If your hair is too short or dyed, read more about why we’re unable to accept it and where we recommend you donate it to.

Step 2

Friends and family can help support.

It’s simple to get started with your fundraising! Pick a page name. Post a picture. Write a little story about why you’re donating your hair. And that’s it! 

Thinking bigger? Why not get your school or work involved? We’ve got lots of tips and tools to get you started here.

Step 3

Make your big chop count.

Ask a hairdresser or even a friend or family member to chop your hair.

Make sure you’ve got the instructions on hand.

And don’t forget to take some before and after photos, or why not share a live video of your chop? #hairwithheart

KAYLA, NSW

On my 12th birthday, I decided to cut my hair and donate it to charity as I wanted to help those who needed it more than me.

BRIELLA, QLD

I have always had long hair, it gives me so much confidence when I can dress it up with pretty things. I wanted to be able to give that same happiness and confidence to someone else.
