Mane event gives us the lock on generosity

A Guinness world record has been set in Mississippi.

Nearly 1,500 people showed up at the Mississippi Institute of Aesthetics, Nails, and Cosmetology in Clinton to support the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Campaign, and they set a new world record for the largest number of hair donations to come from a single community in one day.  

The final tally was 870 donors with 107 pounds of hair. 

The donated hair will be used to make at least 300 wigs for cancer patients. 

According to Pantene's Randall Chinchilla, the hair donation is worth almost $180,000. 

More than 120 volunteer stylists were on hand to cut the hair.
