Andis Company is providing Roots Salon of Milwaukee, WI with Envy Professional Clippers, Experience Cordless Clippers and SuperLiner Trimmers as a team of 10 stylists attempt to break the Guinness World Record of most heads shaved by a team on October 21, 2012 at the Brookfield Soccer Complex in Brookfield, WI. Lead by salon co-owners Naomi Prusinski and Shannon Lopez, the attempt, “Be Brave and Shave,” is inspired by Haven Anderson, a 2-year old girl who has been diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma.

The current Guinness World Record is 318 heads shaved and was set in February 2011 in Ireland. The following Guinness rules must be met to count towards the world record of number of heads shaved in an hour by a team:

• Candidates for shaving must have a normal head of hair prior to the event. No person who is partly or completely bald, or whose hair is receding, may be shaved.
• A No 1 or No 2 cut is only allowed.
• Standard hairdressing electric or battery-operated clipper will be used.
• All Shaves must be completed within 1 hour by a team of 10 stylists.
• No person under the age of 18 may participate without written consent of their parent or guardian.
• Only heads judged by the witnesses to have been completely shaved may count toward total.
