Natural Hair Styles 2011 Largest Afro

Natural Hair Styles 2011 Largest Afro

The 2012 edition of the Guinness Book of Records has been published, after 56 years charting the world's fastest, longest, tallest, widest and every other conceivable type of record available.

The book includes the person who is now the record holder for the world's largest Afro hairstyle which is one of the most popular of natural hair styles.

The BBC recently did an interview with Aevin Dugas, who is the new holder of the 2011  natural hair style record.  During the BBC's interview they also talked with Craig Glenday, the book's editor in chief.

Ms. Dugas explained to the BBC's Lucy Hockings how much effort goes into maintaining the style and how it gets a little too hot in the summer months.

Ms. Dugas is a social worker from New Orleans. Besides the heat, her record breaking Afro can be just a pain in the head.  She told the media that one time "I slammed my hair in a car door getting in."

Dugas also reported her natural hair style can be "problematic because when I'm driving, I can't see" which is definitely "a problem."

Ms. Dugas, whose hair measures 4 feet and 4 inches around, is one of a few new records recorded in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records.

As reported by's blog, it took the new entry into the Guinness World Record Books 12 years to grow her Afro to it's current size.
