I love the internet. It's a place full of really useful facts on just about anything your mind can possibly think to dream of. On one of my many interwebs searches I discovered a small yet rather fascinating collection of Guinness World Records that solely involves beards. Yes, nothing but world records held by glorious facial forests! So here's my top three Beard related Guinness World Records!
THE YOUNGEST EVER WOMAN TO HAVE FACIAL HAIR!
A body positive model named Harnaam Kaur, aged 24 has become the youngest lady in the history of the Guinness World Records to have naturally grown a rather impressive six inch long beard! She herself has described her facial fluff as part of her quest to overcome many years of bullying to help cope with her appearance. Although, granted it might not be everyones cuppa tea you cannot help but admire this young ladies strength and courage to face such issues head on. Bravo I have to say! *tilts ones hat*
MOST TOOTHPICKS PLACED INSIDE A BEARD!
A bearded fellow from Cherry Hill, N.J named Jeff Langum entered the Guinness World Records for the most toothpicks placed inside of ones beard. In just over 3.5 hours the dandy bearded gent managed to individually slide a solid 3,157 toothpicks into his lower beard mane, topping the previous record by just 50 picks! A rather dazzling sight on the eyes I'm sure you can agree, but bloody fascinating nevertheless!
AND THE STRONGEST BEARD ON THE PLANET GOES TO!
Way back in June of 2013 a 61 year old fellow shook the world when he managed to lift the heaviest weight ever lifted by a beard. He lifted a fully grown female who was safety harnessed to nothing other than his facial growth, in turn beating his previously set record of 139lb. I'm sure this guy must be one of our regular customers, because his beard game is on a whole nother level!
Well, that wraps things up for todays beard blog. As always let us know your thoughts and in the comments section provided below!
