CALIFORNIA- A US duo has set a new Guinness World Record with record donations of hair to a charity in 24 hours.

Chris Healy and Lindsay Barto, the co-founders of 'The Longhairs' donated 153.83 kg of hair from 2,834 donations to ‘Children With Hair Loss’, a non-profit charity that provides free hair replacements to kids with medically-related hair loss. 

The charity event, The Great Cut, took place from 9:00 a.m. on 16 March into the early hours of the following day. Over 1,300 hair donors, stylists, volunteers, and guests traveled from all over the US came to San Diego, California to be part of the historic event.

Chris and Lindsay plan to host The Great Cut for the second time in the next five years.
