Love is in the Hair: Donate a Haircut

A non-profit initiative sponsored by OPHA that encourages Ontarians to Donate a Haircut to someone in need this season.

Help Those Who Need it Most 

A lot of people underestimate the true power of a great haircut. Everyone has the ability to change how they feel by simply changing their look. 

Many of us have had the opportunity to experience an instant lift in self-esteem and confidence after a great haircut. However, a new haircut can be out of reach for those dealing with financial, housing, or employment barriers. This includes youth and those heading out for a job or housing interview.

Help Salons Pay it Forward

Salons across Ontario have volunteered their time to Donate a Haircut to those in need. We are asking you to help Pay it Forward with a donation of $25 or more to

Your donation will support this wonderful initiative.

How it Works

Choose your donation amount of $25 or more. 

The Gift will be forwarded to who will deliver it to one of the 50 participating not for profit organizations across Ontario. Each participating non-profit will distribute the donation to those in need in their communities.
