Locks of Love is a public, non-profit
organization that provides hairpieces to financially
disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada
under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss
from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children
by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair
prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of
Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition
called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or
cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their
self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face
the world and their peers.
When performed at the Essential Day Spa and Salon,
this service is complementary for the customer.
Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and
normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by
utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest
quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged
children. The children receive hair prostheses free of
charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
