Become a Hairdressing Hairo!

They play a crucial part in helping us by promoting our free wig provision service, cutting hair and ensuring those donations of long locks are safely sent to us.

Hair For Each Other

Over the next few months, we will be running a campaign to shout about the amazing hairdressers, barbers and stylists who support us - and to also invite others to join the LPT family.

Hair For Each Other is a campaign that will rightly shine a light on those unsung heroes who play a crucial part in helping us provide our free wig provision service - and also highlight the best ways for hair professionals to support us.

Wig fitter network

We have fantastic, supportive wig fitters across the UK and Ireland to ensure anyone that needs one our LPT wigs doesn't have to travel too far.

Wig fitters are very different to our Hairdressing Hairoes and undergo training to ensure they follow our wig fitting guidelines and high standards while respecting the wig recipients' privacy.

If you want to know more about our wigs, visit our 'Request a Wig' page here.

The MBE for voluntary groups was awarded to The Little Princess Trust by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
