I've chopped my hair

Variety Hair With Heart

Variety Hair with Heart is a hair donation program. By donating your hair you’re helping to create real hair wigs for someone that has lost their hair due to a long-term medical condition.

Pairing your hair donation with fundraising means that you’re helping more than one person by supporting kids who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability through our grants and programs.  

This August we're giving away a prize pack to our top Hair with Heart fundraiser*. Will that be you? Visit our resources page for great fundraising ideas.

* Based on the amount raised in August 2022 on a Hair with Heart Funraisin page.

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 who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability.

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
