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!

    1. I am once again had the honor and pleasure to be able to Donate my hair for the 4th time!!…this time was 14 inches!!…2 extra inches more than the last 3 before. 1st time I donated to Lock of Love, 2nd and 3rd to Goldy Locks, then this 4th time to the long hairs. I will definitely keep continue to let my hair grow until sadly will be time for me to dye my hair. What makes me be a part of all this is to be able to see from someone who lost their hair have confidence, self esteem and able to bring a beautiful smile on their faces when they put on ” a wig on their head with real hair!! 😍
      That’s what is all about, to keep us giving πŸ’– for those who need πŸ’–.
      I am so proud of myself to be part of such an important event 😊

    2. So happy my daughter Anne Leslie was aware of this fabulous fund raising!!! I was happy to donate five years of my hair!!!..Job well doneπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»
