A deal was made, and a deal was paid.
Trevor Kulseth, owner and operator of Krebsbach and Kulseth Funeral Home in Bowman, agreed a few weeks ago to chop off his locks if KPOK radio station could generate $1,000 or more in donations. Kulseth also agreed to get the campaign half way there with a donation of his own of $500.

Well the donations came in droves and easily surpassed the $1,000 goal. They received $2,100.
So the time came, and his man bun was no more.
On Monday, May 30, with eight people in the studio, and over 2,000 watching on Facebook Live, Kulseth’s wife Alicia—who is a hair stylist by trade and operates Where Art and Beauty Meet in Mandan—got her sheers out and gave what could be considered the most famous haircut of the week.
Alicia did have some assistance.
Trevor Steeke showed up with his own sheers, sheep sheering sheers.
Steeke wasn’t allowed to give the full cut, but he got in a few strides on the back of Kulseth’s head.
The hair wasn’t shaved down to the skin, he made that clear early that he would cut it, but not shave it.
All of the money donated is going towards the school of promise. Kristi Krebsbach and Connie Mason were at the station for the event and to accept the donations for of the School of Promise.
The money that was raised will go towards a few things. They plan on using it to purchase bicycles and helmets for the new track they have.
The School of Promise currently educates 23 area kids.
Kulseth, who chose the destination for the donation, said that he picked the School of Promise because it is a local cause and he believes in supporting children, because “they are our future” he said.
