Hair Donation Australia

Donate your ponytail & join our Wigs 4 Kids campaign™

Wigs 4 Kids Campaign

If you are cutting your hair and would like it to benefit a young child, Kids with Cancer and Ella Wigmakers can assist you. They make amazing wigs for cancer patients. You can turn your cut or shave into a wonderful fundraiser for the kids and it’s a win-win. Your hair is recycled as a child’s wig and the donations you send help us to help the kids and their families. We don’t sell your hair. You send it directly to our wigmaker – Ella Wigmakers.


We are able to provide our supporters with a way of donating hair to benefit kids through an Australian wigmaker. We looked far and wide for a wig maker that would accept hair donations directly and manufacture wigs locally. Many organisations sell their hair donations to overseas wigmakers.

We are now working with ‘Ella Wigmakers’ on the Central Coast NSW. Our supporters can be assured their beautiful locks will be used as a hair donation Australia.

How to Donate Hair

‘Ella Wigmakers’ will accept all types of hair. The hair needs to be a minimum length of 20cm clean and dry.  Use multiple pony tails (where you can). Tie elastic bands down the length of the pony tail or plait each pony tail then cut above the top elastic band. Post in a plastic bag inside an addressed parcel to:

Ella Wigmakers, PO Box 9200, Wyoming NSW 2250.

Provide your details as well so that the wig makers understand it’s given for Wigs 4 Kids™ Campaign. Email us for the details required: ❤️

We understand cutting your hair and making a hair donation is a major step so please always check where your beautiful hair is going. Always read the fine print. You don’t want it to be sold overseas.

Wigs 4 Kids™ Campaign doesn’t receive free wigs in return for your donated hair as there is often 60hrs work in a wig. We supply wigs at no cost to kids through our Wigs 4 Kids™ campaign via the oncology social workers in each of our children’s hospitals.
