Eighty-one year old Zheng Shusen (China) has been officially recognized for having the Longest eyebrow hair in the world, stretching an incredible 19.1 cm (7.5 in) when it was measured at a hospital in Menzhouli, Inner Mongolia, China last month.
Zheng first realised one of his eyebrow hairs was much longer than the others in 2015, underestimating it at about 18.5 cm.
He says that sometimes this naturally long hair slips into his mouth when he eats – so he always tucks it behind his right ear.
In his application to for the record title, Zheng wrote: “In China, a long eyebrow hair means health and long life. When I found out that my eyebrow hair was a lot longer than other people, my family started to say that it was a good symbol for an old man … it was at this point I thought I might be the Guinness World Records title holder.”
His amazing eyebrow hair has easily outgrown the previous 18.1 cm (7.1 in) record-setting hair that belonged to Sumito Matsumura (Japan).
But Zheng is not the only person to have an extraordinarily lengthy hair…
Anthony Victor (India) has hair sprouting from the centre of his outer ears (middle of the pinna) that measures a staggering 18.1 cm (7.12 in) at its longest point, making it the Longest ear hair.
The Longest chest hair measured 23.5 cm (9.25 in) and belonged to Zhao Jingtao from China, as confirmed on 13 Sep 2014.
The Longest nipple hair was grown by Italian Daniele Tuveri, logged at 17 cm (6.6 in) on 13 Mar 2013.
