Supporting Children with Hair Loss

Hundreds of hairdressers across the country have signed up to help a charity supporting children with hair loss.

The Little Princess Trust has always been backed by hair professionals, many of whom send hair donations from their customers to help the charity make wigs for young people.

Phil Brace, from The Little Princess Trust, said those in the hair industry know the importance hair plays for their clients – and their confidence.

And as the largest real-hair wig charity for children in the UK, he said this is something also understood by everyone at The Little Princess Trust.

So, to strengthen the links between the charity and those working in salons across the country, a new campaign called ‘Hair for Each Other’ was launched.

As part of the project, hairdressers can order a newly designed free salon pack. These come complete with window stickers, mirror clings and all the information and tools to help hair professionals spread the word about The Little Princess Trust’s free wig provision service.

Mr Brace added: “It’s hairdressers, stylists, barbers, and salons that are such a vital component in making The Little Princess Trust’s mission a reality, and we want to encourage more hair professionals to get involved.

Often, professionals in the hair industry don’t realise the positive impact their day-to-day work can have on a child or young person experiencing hair loss – but it’s something we want to highlight with this campaign.” 

Celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton is one of more than 700 hair professionals to have already received one of the new packs.

He encouraged his fellow hairdressers to follow his lead and help the charity to continue supporting children with cancer by giving them a free, real hair wig.

“Hair for Each Other is the perfect opportunity for hairdressers, barbers and stylists to support The Little Princess Trust,” he added. “Please get involved!”
