Cutting and styling hair is an acquired skill and it takes years of practice to be able to satisfy customers who are always looking to, well, look good! Mastering a skill like this definitely deserves a reward, and this man certainly showed he has earned his.

A barber from Bidor, Perak earned himself an entry in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) with the title “Most Haircuts in 24 Hours By An Individual”.

But just how many haircuts are we looking at? Well, the 31-year-old managed to give 144 haircuts in 24 hours, beating MBR’s given target of 100 haircuts! Wow!

S. Kalitasan, nicknamed Mr Dhass, started on Tuesday (30 April) morning and completed his last haircut on Wednesday (1 May) afternoon, reported The Star.

Upon receiving the MBR certificate, he told those assembled that he is grateful for being the first to break the MBR record for this category.

“I wanted to succeed and do something special for myself,” he said at the special ceremony held at his barbershop in Batu Caves.

Present at the ceremony were Selangor Mentri Besar’s political secretary, A. Rahim Ahmad Kasdi, and Batu MP P. Prabakaran. They expressed their happiness for Mr Dhass as he proved that a person from a poor background could succeed if they put their mind and effort to the task.

Mr Dhass recounted that in 2002, he arrived in Kuala Lumpur in hopes of starting a better life to support his elderly father. He didn’t have much, just RM40 in his pocket.

“I still remember my first four days in KL. I had to sleep at a bus stop because I had no house. My friend, Satis, helped me a lot and taught me hair-cutting techniques. I was able to open Kedai Gunting Rambut Dhass in 2016, and support my beloved wife, N. Malathi, too,” he said.

MBR operation, research and marketing manager Edwin Yeoh applauded him for this achievement.

“Anything is possible if you have courage and determination, and today we have Mr Dhass with his unbelievable achievement. MBR needs more local records like this to show the world that Malaysians are talented,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Dhass said he intends to break the world record by giving 1,000 haircuts next.

Mr Dhass really is an inspiration to all of us as he has proven that hard work and determination can really take you places. I’m sure he will be able to break the world record with 1,000 haircuts next time. All the best Mr Dhass!
