Dive Shed sisters Megan and Alecia Macdonald are attempting Busselton’s first underwater shave at the end of the Jetty next Tuesday to raise funds for the Leukemia Foundation.  

Yes, you read right. Resting eight-metres-deep on the ocean’s seafloor, their make-shift salon, weighed down by diving weights, will feature a table, chair, hairdresser’s cape and an audience of divers.

Megan, who traded in her locks for a bald cranium for the first time nearly eight years ago at the Esplanade Hotel, has dared to go bare again in the lead up to the official World’s Greatest Shave due in March.   

“Well, we practically live underwater so we thought why not?,” Megan laughed.

“It just seemed normal for us to do it like that. We thought of putting together a dive to do something unique, something that hasn’t been done before.” 

The sisters are calling on divers and non-divers to be a part of the event and fill the boat. 

“Everyone pays between $85 to $140 and we can take ten more divers,” they said.

“They will be able to come down, take their own photos and do a dive.

“People can make donations and non-divers are welcome to take a spot on the boat as well.” 

The boat will depart Port Geographe Marina at 10am and return at 1pm.
