Mohawks to benefit the homeless


Ivan Zoot, also known as "The Clipper Guy", holds three world records in speedy haircutting.

On November 12, Bolt Barbers will celebrate their grand opening with a Hawks for Homeless fundraiser in Los Angeles, CA. At the event, barbers will volunteer to cut mohawks and faux hawks to help raise money for the Midnight Mission, a Los Angeles organization dedicated to removing the homeless from skid row and helping them become self-sufficient through education, training and counseling.

Among the Mohawk stylists will be Ivan Zoot, director of education and training for Andis, who also holds the Guinness Book of World Record titles for the world’s fastest haircut, most haircuts in one hour and most haircuts in 24 hours. If he chops at his world record pace of 34 haircuts per hour, Zoot can achieve 170 mohawks during the five-hour event.
