Hair Donation Ottawa is an annual, non-profit, cancer research fundraiser where people raise pledges for donating their hair and/or shaving their heads & they receive a wash, cut and style or shave.
Participating hair stylists from various Ottawa & area salons, as well as teaching staff and students from the Algonquin College Hair Stylist program, volunteer their time for this cause.
Proceeds go towards:
The event has raised more than $250,000 since 2011 and donated over 15,000 inches of hair.
The event runs each April during Cancer Awareness Month.
