Supporting a great cause

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. All suitable hair donations go towards the custom manufacture & fitting & of approx. 10 free wigs a year for financially challenged children in Ottawa & the region who are experiencing hair loss for a variety of medical reasons. As well as Cutting Edge Adult and Childhood Cancer Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Research Institute.
