Aevin Dugas, from my hometown of New Orleans, LA (Happy Mardi Gras, y’all!), holds the Guinness World Records title for the world’s largest afro at a 4’4″ circumference. She has been natural for twelve years and started wearing an afro after being inspired by the way her mother wore her afro in the 70’s. Her friend spotted a picture of her afro on facebook and suggested she enter it for a world record. Click here for info on her hair care routine.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I’m fairly certain there are a lot more naturals who could easily assume this title. Cipriana & Nikisha of Urban Bush Babes (UBB), for example, both have a hell of a lot of hair, seemingly more than Aevin; and Cipriana has been natural all her life. I wonder if she could take the title. Or that model I frequently see with the superhero long burnt orange/red hair and freckles.
Anyway, here are some more pictures of Aevin Dugas and that glorious mane. The pictures just don’t seem to do it justice, but then again cameras never seem to accurately reflect the true size of the fro on any head, in my opinion.
