Michigan barber to attempt 40 haircuts in an hour

DETROIT, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A Michigan barber said he is aiming to break a world record by performing at least 35 haircuts in an hour.

Bryan "B-Dogg" Price, 46, of Oak Park said he is practicing to attempt the goal April 6 at the Michigan Barber School in Detroit, where he obtained his license in 1988, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

"I feel at home right here," Price said of the school.

He said he needs to finish at least 35 haircuts to break the world record, but his goal is to reach 40.

"The patron has to have a full head of hair where you're able to line it all around," he said of the rules for breaking the record.

Price said he is planning to use two sets of clippers, one in each hand, and quickly move back and forth between two chairs while customers quickly change places in the seats. He said he will clip and line each cut, even over the ears.

"These cuts are free, and two more are free after," Price said. "That first cut -- that's the way I want to do it. They're going by my rules, so, you know, I have to go ahead and hook them up, give them something for doing it for me, show them I appreciate it."

Ivan Zoot, who set the record in 2008 by giving 34 haircuts in an hour in Texas, said he applauds Price's ambition.

"My words of advice would be, first of all, good luck," Zoot said. "Second of all, follow the rules very, very carefully."
