The World Record

The official Guinness World Record we will attempt to break at The Great Cut is “Most hair donated to charity in 24 hours.

CURRENT RECORD

LBS OF HAIR

The current record is 181 lbs. of hair, set on September 19, 2015 in Mandaluyong, Philippines, where 1,345 participants donated. The record breaking attempt was part of the Matrix Chairs of Change Cut for Cancer Challenge, their second attempt.

 

Most of the participants in the Cut for Cancer Challenge were Filipino women, who tend to have thick hair. As such, our goal is 2,000 hair donors, which should comfortably net us 200 lbs. and thus break the record.

Several attempts since the 2015 Cut for Cancer Challenge have failed to break the record.

Furthermore, after careful consideration we are planning a 12-hour cutting period. Crunching the numbers that shakes out to 100 cutting stations, 30-minute haircuts and four-hour shifts, which means we are recruiting 300 hair professionals to operate the shears.

Imagine

A cutting zone the size of two basketball courts, 100 cutting stations operating at full capacity, hair donors streaming down the lanes filling open seats, greeted by skilled and comforting professionals, parting willingly with their manes, exiting the cutting zone with their freshly hewn locks in hand, placing their donations ceremoniously upon the official world record scale, all to the cheering of thousands. Tears of joy shall be wept this day.
