WATCH: Nigerian woman creates world’s longest wig measuring over 350 metres

Who is Helen Williams and which Guinness World Record does she hold?

Nigerian wigmaker Helen Williams has created the world’s longest handmade wig, measuring 351.28 metres (1,152 ft 5 in).

Helen spent 11 days and over two million naira (£2,031; $2,493) making the wig.

After constructing the underlay with wig-cap netting and black fabric attached to a bicycle helmet, she 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,” Helen said. “My experience as a wigmaker helped a lot.”

Helen has been working as a professional wigmaker for eight years, producing anywhere from 50 to 300 wigs per week.

“I have trained hundreds of students and have made thousands of wigs,” she revealed.

Despite having such extensive experience, creating the record-breaking wig was not a simple feat for Helen.
