Sport Clips, the nation’s largest men’s and boys’ hair-care provider, celebrated the opening of its 700th store by setting a world record for charity at its new White Marsh, Maryland location late yesterday. Sport Clips is known for its sports-themed, guy-friendly environment and has stores in 38 states.
During the event, several current and former Baltimore Orioles baseball players including Scott McGregor, Jason Berken, Rick Dempsey, and Dave Johnson were on hand, along with the team’s Bird mascot, while ten stylists worked from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday to set a Guinness World Record for the most haircuts given in a 12-hour period. By the day’s end, the team completed a total of 329 cuts. Confirmation from Guinness is pending.
