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