Beauty For Good: World Record-setting Cut-a-thon Delivers for Charity

In September, 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 its 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.
