      Hi Meena

      Yes you could donate it, when the hair is donated it is tied in a ponytail and secured at both ends so any parts that weren’t long enough just wouldn’t stay in the ponytail if that makes sense!

    Hi, I just registered to donate about 25 cm of my hair. Should I do it on the fair, or just go to the hairdresser, secure it and bring it there? Thanks

      Hi Anna, actually we are now full at the fair (I just logged on to change the form to say that!!), so if you could get it cut at your hairdresser and bring it that would be great, as long as it is within a week of the fair please.
      Thanks, Ruth
