On July 13, Diane Lane cut 9 inches off her hair on NBC's Today Show in an effort to encourage other women, men and children to grow, cut and donate their hair to make free real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. Since the 13th, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign - in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) - has received over 5,000 ponytails! Hometown ambassadors in each state are working to spread the word and getting people to cut their hair, and many are hosting cutting parties in which they get a group of their friends and family together to make the cut together.

About Pantene Beautiful Lengths:

  • donors must have 8 inches of non-chemically damaged hair
  • the wigs themselves are crafted by  HairUWear & distributed at local American Cancer Society wig banks across the U.S.
  • for more info, visit BeautifulLengths.com

If you plan to be in Minnesota in December, why not participate in a cutting party! Either stop by and watch or make the kindest cut of all:

  • WHAT: Minnesota Cutting Party
  • WHERE: The Mall of America
  • WHEN: December 10 from 1 pm - 5 pm

Hi, my name is Brennan Blomgren, and I am the Minnesota Ambassador for Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

We are currently trying to spread the word about this wonderful new program as much as possible, and we desperately need people who are willing to commit to making their donation there at the Mall of America cutting party.

The more commitments we have, the more media attraction we can get for the cause! If you can commit to donating 8 inches of healthy hair on December 10th, please contact me at beautifullengthsmn@gmail.com

During this holiday season your donation will be particularly a blessing to both the giver and the receiver of this wonderful gift. I think it will be a great event - I'm very excited about it and hoping that I will meet a lot of you there at the Mall of America!

~Bren
