Three generations, one haircut

Like father, like son… and his son.

Three generations of the Lasley family helped to set a new Guinness World Record, when they appeared April 9 on NBC’s “Today” show to get their heads shaved in a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which raises funds for children with cancer.

The newly shorn Lasley trio are Cage Lasley, a Western Middle School sixth-grader; his father, Tom Lasley, business manager for Eagle Hill School; and Tom’s father, John Lasley.

“All three of us have always wanted to set a world record,” Tom said. “Now we can take it off our bucket list.”

The new record was set when one barber shaved the Lasleys’ heads and 70 others in less than one hour.

The Lasley family is coordinating another St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event on June 12 at Western Middle School, when they will try to beat the Guinness record.
