Man with world’s longest hair dies

What kind of beauty science blog would we be if we didn’t report on this story: The man with the world’s longest hair just died.

Tran Van Hay, who lived in Vietnam and passed away last week at the age of 79 is on record as having the longest hair in the world, according to the Guinness World Records. At the time of his death it was estimated to be 6.8 meters (more than 23 feet! The last time his hair was officially measured, in 2004, it was 5.6 meters or 18 feet.)
