Great Lengths for Little Princesses

When the time comes to remove your Great Lengths hair extensions, we want to make sure they don’t go to waste. Used Great Lengths hair extensions can be donated to the Little Princess Trust charity and used towards making real hair wigs. The wigs are then gifted to young children who have experienced hair loss as a result of cancer or alopecia. We’re proud to say that Great Lengths is the only hair extensions company to work with the Little Princess Trust as a result of the quality of our hair, which is ethically sourced and 100% human hair.

September is Child Cancer Awareness month and we really want to shout about our partnership with the Little Princess Trust in the hopes of encouraging more Great Lengths extension wearers to donate their hair and help with this amazing cause. We partnered with the Little Princess Trust in 2015 and have supported them ever since.

The collaboration was initiated by Great Lengths extensionist and co-founder of M Hair Nottingham, James Henderson, when he noticed that the high-quality hair that was being removed from his clients could be re-used as hair donations. James was recently appointed as the Charity Ambassador of Great Lengths, due to his ongoing support and involvement in the Great Lengths and Little Princess Trust partnership and said:  I’d read about the Little Princess Trust and the amazing work they do in a magazine article. I was moved by the story behind the trust. I was also impressed that these were the only dedicated charity that provide real hair wigs for boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or alopecia. No child should have to go through what these children are going through and the fact that this can help to restore their self-confidence a little bit is incredible and something that I really hoped we could be a part of.  

Over 1,250 bundles of Great Lengths hair extension bundles have been donated to the charity so far and with your help we’re hoping to make this total even higher. Donating your Great Lengths couldn’t be simpler, speak to your stylist about this when having your extensions removed.

A number of donations to the Little Princess Trust have already been made by our own GL Lovelies, including actress Sarah Parish, DJ, model and TV presenter Vogue Williams and blogger Becky Sheeran.
