Longer than a Football Field
Over a football field in length of ponytails collected!
According to Wigs for Kids, it takes 10 – 12 ponytails to make a wig. And since it’s at least 8″ per ponytail, that’s around 80″ per 10 ponytails which is as many as
wigs for sick children in B.C.
Costing around $1,000-$3,000 for a real human hair wig, it’s a heavy financial burden on families already stretched thin caring for their sick child. If only 20 wigs are made, that’s at least

No Ponytail? No Problem!
Not all participants had 8″ of undyed hair to give out – instead, regular haircuts could be had for $25, or $15 for a buzzcut, with each and every dollar going to the Canadian Cancer Society. One of our participants even raised an impressive $530 to get rid of his man-bun!
On The Fringe Hair Design provided us with not only a venue to host our event through, but also with 6 highly trained, professional hairdressers, and their excellent touch-up guarantee.
That’s right – participants not satisfied with their haircut were welcomed back to the salon for touchups for free. Not only that, On The Fringe Hair Design collected pony tails throughout the year that were passed onto us for this year’s Cuts for Cancer.
From A Massive Turn-Out
There were so many participants this year that we had to turn people away – we’re extremely sorry for that! We were so busy that our On The Fringe hairdressers had to do a complete cut-a-thon, barely getting a moment to rest before working on the neverending line of participants.
None of this would
have been possible without
... so thank you!
