Kazuhiro Watanabe of Japan now holds the Guinness World Record for the Tallest Mohican (mohawk) Hairstyle. Its length (44.68 inches) was verified by Tokyo’s Bloc de l’art hair salon on October 28, 2011. Gothamist has reported that Watanabe was in New York City’s Washington Square Park to celebrate the release of the Guinness World Records 2013 book. The record was previously held by Germany’s Stefan Srocka (31.5 inches).
It has taken over 15 years for Kazuhiro to grow his hair to such a long length, and takes a team two hours, three cans of hairspray and one jar of gel to sculpt Watanabe’s mohican.
