Nigerian woman sets new Guinness World Record for longest handmade wigHelen Williams, a wig maker from Lagos, Nigeria, has entered the Guinness World Records by creating the world’s longest handmade wig

The wig measures an astounding 351.28 meters (1,152 ft 5 in) with Helen dedicating 11 days and over two million naira (£2,031; $2,493) to craft this remarkable wig.

The GWR acknowledged her feat, by sharing on its official “X” account, “Helen Williams from Lagos, Nigeria has achieved a new record for the longest handmade wig which stretches an incredible 351.28 metres (1,152 ft 5 in)”

Helen, after constructing the underlay with wig-cap netting and black fabric attached to a bicycle helmet, completed the hairpiece using 1,000 bundles of hair, 12 cans of hair spray, 35 tubes of hair glue, and 6,250 hair clips.

“Finding the materials to make the longest wig was not an easy task,” shared Helen. “My experience as a wigmaker helped a lot.”

Reacting to her new feat in the Guinness World Records book, Helen expressed her joy, remarking ‘it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I still cannot believe it.’
