Cuts for Cancer

Easiest way to look good and do good!

The event is now over! Thank you to everyone who helped make it a huge success! You can see our impact report by clicking on the button to the right.

UBC’s Cuts for Cancer is an annual event in which students and the UBC community are given the unique opportunity to help those in the fight against cancer. Hair donations of 8″ or longer will be transformed into wigs for children who suffer long-term medical hair loss at BC Children’s Hospital, and funds raised are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, where they will be put toward cancer research and treatments.

Cuts for Cancer is done with On The Fringe Hair Design, whose hairdressers donate their time and skill to deliver professional, top-notch haircuts to all participants!

Cuts for Cancer is UBC Cancer Association’s biggest event of the year, and we look forward to seeing all of you to come out and participate! Don’t have long hair to donate? Just want a regular haircut? Don’t want a haircut but still want to support us? Everyone is welcome! For those donating 8″ or more, it’s free, but for others, you can pay for a sweet haircut and have the proceeds go to the Canadian Cancer Society!

  • Buzzcut                     – $15
  • Styling (No haircut) – $15
  • Haircut & Styling     – $25

Where? The Nest, On The Fringe Salon (Lower level, around the corner from CITR)
