The Cosmetology Department hosted an event titled, Donate Your Hair at Cerritos College on April 30 and collected 89 pony tails to be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Haircuts were free with the only cost being at least eight inches of hair to donate to make wigs for chemotherapy patients.

Political science major and coordinator of the event, Nallely Badillo, explained

“The purpose of this event is to create awareness to the Cerritos College campus and also to help out the people who are undergoing cancer treatment who can’t afford wigs,” Badillo said.

Mt. San Antonio College English major Gabrielle Martinez explains why she came to Cerritos College to donate her hair.

“I am fortunate enough to be blessed with good health and so many of my sisters all around the world are struggling to survive,” Martinez said.
