Nigerian Lady Sets Another Guinness World Record With ‘Wildest Wig’

Guiness World Record, on Monday, has announced the recent feat achieved by a Nigerian lady, Helen Williams, in setting a new world record for making the ‘wildest wig’.

The GWR, in a blog post, stated that Helen “crafted a hairpiece that’s 3.65 m (11 ft 11 in) wide and trails all the way to the floor,” which is equivalent to a Mini Cooper, which is 3.63 m (11 ft 10 in) long.

According to the post, Helen Williams spent over a month making her latest record-breaking creation, using over 800 bundles of auburn hair, which cost 4,138,200 Naira ($2,719; £2,150) on the materials.

The GWR also disclosed that the 31-year-old made her very wide wig mostly by hand but used a sewing machine for some parts.

Speaking on her achievement, Helen, who also holds the record for most hair clips in a wig in 30 seconds with 90, said, “I am very proud of myself. I now hold three records.

“As a professional wig maker, I look forward to breaking many more records in the wig category. I enjoy taking on difficult tasks; it makes me a better person and I learn new things.”

Helen also disclosed that she drew her inspiration from actress and talk show host Drew Barrymore, a former record holder.

She said, “I am a big fan of Drew Barrymore, she also inspired me.”

Helen has currently broken three records, including one for inserting 90 hair clips into a wig in just 30 seconds, and another for creating the longest handmade wig.
