Springdale Students, Teachers Donate Hair for Pantene Beautiful Lengths

SPRINGDALE — All week long, area students are donating their hair to help cancer patients.

It’s part of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths School Week. Students, and even teachers at Walker Elementary in Springdale cut their hair, which will be used to make wigs for people going through cancer treatments. Fourth grade teacher Andrea Barnett says she donated her hair in honor of her grandmother, and some of her colleagues.

“I think that it’s important for them to see this because you know, you’re a good role model for them, showing them that you can do things. You don’t even have to have a lot of money. You can cut your hair, grow it out and send it off and it’s not anything that has to cost a bunch, you can just grow what you have.”

The ninth annual Pantene Beautiful Lengths event takes place on June 24 at the Walmart AMP in Rogers. Both donors and stylists are needed. There are some requirements in order to donate hair. Learn more about how to get involved.
