Men With World's Longest Hair In Guinness World Records Dies

A man who was thought to have the world's longest hair has died.

China's Xie Qiuping is on record as having the world's longest hair, measured at 5.6 metres in 2004, according to the Guinness World Records.  The exact length of Tran Van Hay's unwashed hair was unclear, but some estimates put it as long as 6.8 metres.

Hay began to let his hair grow more than 50 years ago because he often got sick after a haircut, the Vietnam News quoted his wife, Nguyen Thi Hoa, as saying.

Media reports said he lived a simple life as a herbalist, but his hair could complicate things. Reports said no motorcycle taxi would carry him because he could not wear a helmet. In the daytime he balanced his hair on his head like a basket, protected by a scarf.

Hay, whose hair weighed several pounds, died at home Wednesday in the southern province of Kien Giang at the age of 79, Vietnam News said.

Daily Hair Tip
A perfect hair knot is one of the simplest ideas to jazz up the back of any hair. The most important part of having a hair knot is that it look immaculate and be pinned securely. If your hair is too short to form a hair knot you can clip on a fake ponytail and twist it into the knot of your choice.
