Helen Williams Shatters Guinness World Record

Renowned Nigerian wigmaker, Helen Williams, has officially secured a place in the Guinness World Records for crafting the world’s longest handmade wig, measuring an astounding 351.28 meters (1,152 feet 5 inches). The prestigious recognition was bestowed upon her by the official Guinness World Records organization.

Embarking on this ambitious project on November 4, Williams dedicated 11 days and invested over two million naira to meticulously create the record-breaking wig. The colossal endeavor involved the utilization of 1,000 bundles of hair, 12 cans of hair spray, 35 tubes of hair glue, and 6,250 hair clips.

Drawing upon her extensive eight-year professional career, during which she produced 50 to 300 wigs per week and trained numerous students, Williams faced significant challenges in sourcing materials for the longest wig. Despite her wealth of experience, the task proved to be no easy feat.

To ensure accurate measurement, Williams laid out the extensive wig in a straight line. Various venues, including running tracks, fell short due to the wig’s remarkable length. Eventually, she chose the Lagos–Abeokuta Expressway, a lengthy road connecting Lagos and Abeokuta, as the ideal location to showcase her creation.

Following the successful record-setting event, the extraordinary wig now resides in Helen’s office, where she welcomes anyone interested to come and admire this remarkable achievement. Overwhelmed with joy, Williams expressed her disbelief, stating, “This achievement is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I still cannot believe it.”
