Amazing World Record for Fastest Hair Cut
RACINE, WI, USA -- Helping to set a new world record is an opportunity that doesn’t come along often. You can assist Ivan Zoot, director of education and training at Andis Company, in breaking the World Record for the most haircuts in a 24-hour period.
Zoot is staging a haircutting marathon at Roosters Men’s Grooming Center, at the Anderson Arbors Center, 13343 U.S. Highway 183 North, in Austin, TX on Friday, August 22.
Beginning at 3:00 p.m., he intends to break the current record of 300 and is looking for shaggy haired volunteers who like their haircuts fast and for supporters to cheer them on while enjoying free food and live music.
Sponsors include the Andis Company, Woody’s Men’s Grooming Products and Roosters Men’s Grooming Centers. Proceeds will benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas and Children With Hairloss. Anyone interested in participating should call Roosters at 866-242-2625.
“While we attempt to break the record of 300 haircuts in 24 hours,” says Zoot, “we are going to go the extra mile and take a shot at two more records—the fastest haircut in the world and the greatest number of professional haircuts executed in one hour.”
Zoot says he devised a super-efficient system of cutting hair, which eliminates wasted motion and even conversation. He calls it "revolution cutting."
Faster hair-cutting means more customers in a given period and more money, he said: "This is why the beauty industry has latched onto me."
A licensed cosmetologist and barber, Zoot’s background includes experience as a hairstylist, salon manager and owner, hair care product manufacturer, salon chain technical trainer, regional sales manager and consultant in the professional beauty industry. He has previously broken three Guinness World Haircutting records. In his position with Andis, he identifies, recruits, trains and manages Andis’ team of professional beauty industry educators. He is often a featured presenter at industry shows and events where he shares information, education and his enthusiasms for clipper cutting and for the professional beauty industry.
