A New World Record

In Celebrate by El Rubio46 Comments

On Sunday, March 17, shortly after 1:00 AM Pacific Time, Guinness World Records Adjudicator Brittany Dunn announced The Great Cut had successfully donated 339 pounds of hair to Children With Hair Loss, breaking the world record for the most hair donated to charity in 24 hours.

The effort, teamwork and leadership was remarkable. The energy was undeniable. Everyone stepped up. Everyone gave an extra ounce. One spectator even claimed there was a single, solitary tear welling in Ms. Dunn’s eye.

We are deeply and forever grateful in our hearts for what happened on March 16 and for every single person and organization that helped make The Great Cut an overwhelming success, even beyond our imagination.

  1. Yes! Yes! I went extreme and donated 3.8 oz. and 20″ of hair in order to maximize my donation. My wonderful stylist from Vanity Salon in Burbank did a fantastic job with my new pixie cut! Longhairs, HUGE congratulations on achieving this Guinness World Record which could only be accomplished by everyone’s time and generosity. God bless everyone who participated and especially those children who will be the recipients of this event. I was so gladdened to see three young ones who have been able to receive the benefits of what Children With Hair Loss does. Thank you everyone for a wonderful time and congratulations again!
