Of all of the countries that would seemingly vie for the title of world’s longest hair, you probably wouldn’t expect China to be at the top.
According to the Guinness World Records, though, that is the case as Xie Qiuping of China has the longest documented hair in the world at a staggering 18 feet and 5.54 inches when measured in May of 2004. How long did it take to get her hair that long? She said she started growing it in 1973, meaning that is 31 years of hair accumulation on top of her head.

According to the record keepers, Qiuping’s hair is nearly as long as the entire length of a giraffe, including the neck and body. We’re not sure how much that head of hair weighs, but it has to put quite a strain on Qiuping’s neck!
