50 Haircuts in 50 States in 50 Days
This Tuesday, master stylist Patrick Lomantini of Wichita, Kansas, will visit Jungle Red Salon as he attempts to set his second Guinness World record. Last year, he set a world record for cutting hair at his hometown salon for 72 hours straight (277 cuts total). This year he has an even bigger goal: Lomantini will attempt to cut 50 heads of hair in each of the 50 states over 50 days for a grand total of 2,500 haircuts. His journey began in Augusta, Maine, on August 1 and will end in Wichita, Kansas, on November 19 at his salon. Minneapolis is his 30th stop, and it's expected to take a full 12 hours to complete his 50 cuts. Appointments are required, and cuts are free of charge with a suggested donation of $20. All money raised will benefit local Humane Societies. To schedule an appointment with Lomantini, call the salon.
Tue., Aug. 30, 9 a.m.-9 p.m., 2011
