Pump Salon at the Rookwood Commons is pumping itself up for quite a weekend. I just found out that the Pump stylists are tackling the glamorous, but grueling task of breaking the Guinness Book of World Records’ “Most haircuts by a Team of 10 in 24 hours” record! Currently the record stands at 349 haircuts… I’m pretty sure Edward Scissor hands charged his clients : ) But the cool thing about this event with Pump is that all the cuts will be free to participants!
From 12:00pm Friday, September 24 to 12:00pm on Saturday, September 25, not only are the haircuts for free during the salon’s attempt to by-pass 349 haircuts, but the event for a good cause. Any donations made during the 24 hour event will go towards one of six participating charities*.
Not only are they doing free haircuts, but they are also providing free professional color consultations by the Wella Color Discovery Tour from 12pm-5pm on Friday, too! Along with the entertainment from the stylists’ swishing scissors and tousled tresses, other businesses have decided to join up with Pump Salon and make this event go BIG!
Cincinnati Sports Leagues will be hosting happy hour at the salon from 6pm-9pm while local DJs pump up the crowd for the world record take over. Sounds like it’ll be quite the party!
For those night owls needing a trim and touch up in the wee hours, luxury party bus services will be available to the event from Pavillion, aliveOne, and Tap&Go in Mt Adams, and The Stand in Mt. Lookout. The shuttles will run from 11pm-3am, but participants are responsible for their own rides from the event.
So why not come watch Pump Salon attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records “Most haircuts by a Team of 10 in 24 Hours”, and treat yourself to a free haircut! Make sure to preregister for your haircut by sending an email to email@example.com. This is sure to be a hair raising (and hopefully record breaking) experience!
