How to take part

Get ready for a truly unforgettable experience

Make your shave a super success and most importantly, heaps of fun


Will you be shaving?

  • We suggest clipper length No.1 or No.2
  • If you're opting for a lslightly longer 'do', choose No.3 or No.4.
  • Lots of men choose to shave their beloved beard,  moustache or sideburns.
  • Banish the mullet or the comb-over!
  • For health and liability reasons we don’t recommend blade shaves down to the skin.

Not shaving?

  • Got a long pony tail or man bun? Go for a bold new look by chopping off your locks
    (then go one step further and shave the rest of it off!)
  • Colour your hair using non-permanent hair spray that washes out the same day.
  • Cinta Intense Hair Colour Sprays are ideal and are available from all good pharmacies. 
  • You can also try hair chalks - they wash out easily as well. You can buy a pack here.

Snip tips

  • Get creative - add glitter or flowers to your hair.
  • Or even style it into a bizarre hairstyle for a day.
    then shave as your big finale.
  • Wax your legs or arms, or if you're a guy your back or chest (ouch!)
  • Wax your legs or chest!
  • Already bald? Use face-paint to get creative!
