What lengths will you go to?

With hairdressers and barbers closed, we are all experimenting with home haircuts and buzz cuts are becoming a craze!

Take the matter into your own hands with a pair of scissors, clippers, or a bottle of dye and start Hair-raising. Grow a beard, shave you head or dye your hair for Sands!

We want to see the lengths you will go to help others.

By getting involved in Hair-raising, we at Sands can continue to support families who need our services. 


Have you decided what your hairstyle is going to be?

Make the most of growing that beard in a period of social distancing or brave the shave with a number on all over! 

Perhaps you wanted to dye your hair that crazy colour for a while and think now is the right time? Now is definitely the time!
