The Longest Body Hair in the World

How long is your hair? It certainly won’t measure up to these record holders.

Arm Hair.

According to Guinness, a Wisconsin teenager named Robert Starrett holds the record for long arm hair. The single hair from his upper right arm, measured 5.3 inches (about 14 cms). The previous record was 4.09 inches ( about 13 cms.).

Apparently Robert had another hair that was just as long but his sister pulled it out. Well, that’s the kind of thing sisters do to their brothers, I guess.

Bearded Man.

Norwegian Hans Langseth holds the record for the longest beard (male). When he died in 1927 his whiskers measured 17.5 feet (just under 6 metres). It is now on show at the Smithsonian Institution.

Bearded Lady.

Vivian Wheeler of Illinois has the record for the longest beard in the world (female). Her chestnut brown whiskers measures 27.9 cms and she started to grow it after the death of her mother, but since 1997 she hasn’t let her beard grow.

Ear Hair.

Radhakant Bajpai, (50 years old) from Uttar Pradesh in India holds the record for the longest ear hair. His ear hair which sprouts from the center of the outer ear, when unravelled, measures 5.19 inches (13.2cms). The recorded was verified by Guinness in May 2003.

Eye Brows.

Frank Ames (43 years old) of Saranac, New York had his eyebrows measured by a workmate in 1994. They bushed out at 3.78 inches (8cms.) He finally got himself into the records book in August 2005.

Leg Hair.

Tim Stinton from Australia was recognized in February 2005 as having the world’s longest leg hair. It measured 4.8 inches (12.4 cms) and sprouted from his left thigh.

    I have never been one for a lot of hair and have even kept my own hair short for the last 45 years. Ear hair long enough to braid is just disgusting and that guy from Saranac, New York definitely needs a pair of tweezers for Christmas.

    I was getting worried when I stepped on my pubes.
    Now I feel better when I see that other people have
    them growing at the wrong places… ;-)
