The Kindest Cut of All Third Annual FREE Hair Cutting Event to Benefit Women Undergoing Cancer Treatment

PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. - June 16, 2014

All are invited to get a FREE haircut and donate their ponytails to create real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. The Paul Mortuary, an honored member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral providers, has partnered with Hair Studio 104 to host the third annual free hair cutting event for Pantene Beautiful Lengths, to be held from 1 - 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 17 at the funeral home, 390 Lighthouse Avenue in Pacific Grove. Please call 831-375-4191 for more information.


"We are proud to give back to the community we serve by offering this free event for the public," said Gloria Mason, manager of The Paul Mortuary. "These donations of real hair help to support women during the greatest fight of their lives."


When you donate your hair, you are giving a precious gift to a woman in need. We want to make sure not a single gift is wasted, so please be sure your hair meets the following requirements before you make the cut.


To be made into a wig, your hair must be:

  • At least eight inches long (no maximum length). If you have wavy or curly hair, measure when straight.
  • Free of permanent color, bleach or other chemical treatments. Vegetable dyes, semi-permanent dyes and rinses are acceptable, but "virgin" hair is preferred.
  • No more than five-percent gray.


Pantene Beautiful Lengths is a charity campaign created by Pantene in partnership with the American Cancer Society that encourages people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free real-hair wigs for women undergoing cancer treatment.
