How To Cut It in the Hairdressing Industry

26-09-2022 • 51 mins

Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides free natural hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years old, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. In the first of our collaborative podcast series with Great Lengths UK, we're going to be learning about the incredible work that the Little Princess Trust is doing. Plus we get to hear how they have a perfect partnership with Great Lengths that's making a huge difference in helping to meet the demand of supplying free natural hair wigs to children and young people. Joining me for this conversation is Wendy Tarplee-Morris, Director of Service and Impact and Phil Brace, Chief Executive Officer at The Little Princess Trust, along with James Henderson, Salon owner of M Hair Nottingham & Great Lengths Charity Ambassador. Our conversation starts at what the Little Princess Trust is all about, and how it was established after the tragic loss to Wendy's 5 year old daughter to cancer in 2005. We then go all the way through to how James introduced the Great Lengths donations scheme that provides its pre-used hair extensions to the Little Princess Trust through it's 1,500 Great Lengths salons across the UK and Ireland. There is no underestimating the importance of what this perfect partnership between the Little Princess Trust and Great Lengths is doing. AND why, we as an industry, can play a massive part too in not only helping to provide free natural wigs to children and young people, but to also reduces waste by finding a new use for the hair. This podcast could not come at a better time. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month that's all about increasing the awareness and helping to raising funds for those affected by childhood cancer.
