Putting their heads together

A record number of heads were shaved in aid of the Irish Cancer Society yesterday.Today Fm's Shave or Dye campaign achieved its goal of setting a Guinness World Record for the most amount of heads shaved in one hour. Ten barbers managed to shave 317 heads in just 60 minutes at the Style Club in Dublin.

The attempt, lead by Today FM DJs Ray D'Arcy, Ian Dempsey and Matt Cooper, beat the previous world record of 229 heads. Rather than have his head shaved, Ray endured a chest wax.

So far, more than €300,000 has been raised for the Irish Cancer Society in this year's campaign, which ends on Friday.

People wanting to donate €2 can text Shave to 57080.
