Just took Cinn out for lap time and she is shedding. Do they do that like a dog or cat in the warm months?
 
Is there any loss of hair? Any excessive itching? If so than it might be more than just shedding, but if not, guinea pigs do shed a little bit, though not in warm months per my understanding, it's just all the time. Though some breeds tend to seem to shed more than others, like Teddies and Abyssinian guinea pigs.
 
Guinea pigs do shed all the time (and some pigs shed a lot). However, in some pigs I have noticed a seasonal change, shedding more at some times of the year than others.

Petting your pig often will remove the shedding hair constantly and it won't seem like so much at once.
