BREAKING: Nigerian wig maker sets World Guinness Record with widest handmade wig

Helen Williams, a professional wig maker from Nigeria, has once again made headlines by setting a new Guinness World Record for crafting the widest handmade wig. 

Measuring an impressive 3.65 meters (11 feet 11 inches) wide and trailing all the way to the floor, the wig surpasses the length of a Mini Cooper.

Helen Williams embarked on her latest record-breaking endeavour in February, dedicating just over a month to complete the monumental task. 

Using more than 800 bundles of auburn hair, she meticulously stitched the wig together by hand, with some assistance from a sewing machine for certain parts. 

The elaborate creation also features over 1,000 rhinestones, adding a touch of glamour to the impressive hairpiece.

Despite the hurdles, Helen expressed immense pride in her accomplishment, saying: 

“I am very proud of myself. I now hold three records. As a professional wig maker, I look forward to breaking many more records in the wig category. 

“I enjoy taking on difficult tasks, it makes me a better person and I learn new things.”
