World Record-Setting Cut-a-Thon Delivers for Charity

West Chester, Pa.-based Calista Grand Salon and Spa broke a Guinness World Record for most haircuts.

In September 2011, West Chester, Pa.-based Calista Grand Salon and Spa broke a Guinness World Record for most haircuts. From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., the salon hosted the Calistalicious “fun-raiser.” The event featured an eight-hour cut-a-thon in which 10 Calista Grand stylists and all the employees attempted to complete 264 haircuts. Instead the team completed 403 haircuts, beating their own goals. Calista Grand raised $15,000 from participants and donations that were divided between The Shine Foundation, the Cancer Program at Chester County Hospital, and Jordan Baumeister, a young man who is battling a form of cancer called sarcoma.
