Spa Pechanga at Pechanga Resort & Casino will be hosting a month-long hair donation drive in conjunction with Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Anyone who wishes to chop off and donate eight inches or more of their hair will receive a free haircut and style from the professional salon masters at Spa Pechanga during the month of October.

The campaign coincides with October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The haircutting crusade encourages men or women whose hair is eight or more inches, untreated and not recently colored to think about giving their hair to help a woman who has lost her hair due to cancer treatment.

All collected ponytails from Spa Pechanga will be given to the HairUWear organization. The company then turns all usable hair donations into real-hair wigs and distributes them for free to female cancer patients through the national network of American Cancer Society wig banks.

One free haircut and style per day Monday through Friday during the month of October will be available. Others wanting to donate hair may also do so. Reservations at Spa Pechanga are on a first come, first served basis. To make a reservation or for more information, contact Spa Pechanga at (877) 711-2946 or visit

 “We are so excited to be able to do our part to help this very important cause,” says Gina Layland, Spa Pechanga manager. “There are so many women across the country who can be helped by the kindness of a stranger donating their locks. We hope we can help at least a few ladies going through cancer treatment to feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside.”
For more than a decade, Pechanga Resort & Casino has been a major supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the Southern California region. American Cancer Society statistics show that one in three women will develop some form of cancer in her lifetime.
The organization estimates that 790,740 new cases of cancer afflicted women in 2012. Hair loss, one of the most common side effects of cancer treatment, can be especially traumatic for a woman fighting cancer. As a leader in the community, Pechanga Resort & Casino stands behind the efforts of countless altruistic organizations and contributes millions in assistance annually.
