Cancer Council Ponytail Project

$25 Post-Chop Style Cut

✊ Ponytails have the power ✊

Mission Possible

Right now, 460,000 Australians and their families are facing a terrible diagnosis – cancer.

Cancer Council Ponytail Project brings together thousands of extraordinary Australians. These heroes will stand in solidarity with others battling a cancer diagnosis by shaving, cutting or colouring their hair to raise vital funds.

Supercharge Our Heroes

Raising funds to defeat cancer is a tough gig. By the time fundraisers have actually shaved or chopped off their mane, they’ll have invested a tonne of time and leg work to bring in much needed funds. And afterwards, they’re usually left with a few loose ends to tidy up. That’s where you come in….

Our Collective Thank You

We’re showing the love to our fundraising heroes who sacrifice their locks to help fight cancer. We are offering Cancer Council Ponytail Project fundraisers who shave or donate their ponytails, a one off $25 post chop style cut across all participating Sustainable Salons. Our salon members (you!) are automatically included in this offer.

How to Participate

Setting up your salon for the $25 post-chop style cut is easy!

Your business is automatically opted in and we’ve taken care of the rest.

We’ll add your Salon Locator listing to our Cancer Council Ponytail Project category here so fundraisers in your area can spot you easily
