HOW TO TAKE PART

There are options: shave, colour, wax, lose the beard and more…

Shaving

· If you’re going to shave, we prefer clipper length No.1 or No.2.
· Many women opt for No.3 or No.4.
· For health and liability reasons, we don’t recommend blade shaves down to the skin.

Colouring

· Spray your locks with a stunning temporary hair colour. We recommend you use non-permanent hair spray or chalk that washes out the same day.

· Cinta Intense Hair Colour Sprays are ideal and are available from all good pharmacies. You can also try hair chalks - they wash out easily as well. You can buy a pack here.

Other ideas for girls

· Wear a wig.
· Wear a wacky style for the day.
· Go crazy with clips, scrunchies and hair extensions.
· Got long hair? Go short – then shorter still!

Other ideas for guys

· Try shaving off your beard, moustache or sideburns.
· Wax your legs or chest.
· Lose the mullet or the comb-over!
· Use face-paint to get creative on your already bald head.

ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST FUNDRAISERS

Each March more than 150,000 people will get sponsored to shave or colour their hair to support Australians with blood cancer and fund research…

Although survival rates are improving, blood cancers are the third biggest cause of cancer death in Australia.

Getting sponsored to shave, colour or wax the hair on your head, chest or face, is an extraordinary way to help families facing the challenge of blood cancer and to help Australia's best researchers.

The money your sponsors give you will go towards research, which is needed to discover kinder and more effective treatments for blood cancer.

Your sponsorship will also support families when they need it most, providing people with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma with a free home-away-from-home near hospital during their treatment.

It will also mean we can transport them to appointments and provide as much practical assistance and emotional support as we can, all free of charge.

The Leukaemia Foundation receives no ongoing government funding, so supporting this event makes our Vision to Cure and Mission to Care possible.
