The Guinness World Record for the Largest Afro

Simone Williams of New York City has clenched the Guinness World Record for the largest afro on a woman. It has a circumference of 4 feet and 10 inches, beating out the previous record by 6 inches. The New York Post describes her nearly decade-long project:

It took Williams nine years to grow her now unmatched afro, after years of getting perms and straightening her hair from middle school up through college. “I chose to transition [to natural hair] around the age of 23. It began because I wanted to save the money spent at the hair salon to help with the costs of moving into my first apartment,” she said.

Appropriately, this stylish woman works as a fashion designer.
