Meet the world's largest natural afro hair-do

275x250.jpg Something tells us Aevin Dugas has a problem getting through some doorways, because she is the proud owner of the largest natural afro in the world.

With a circumference measuring an incredible 4 ft. 4 in (1.32 m) the impressive hair-do has apparently taken over 12 years to grow.

It's now larger than a traditional disco ball and so big the 36-year-old social worker from New Orleans could even fit the world’s shortest man inside!

Aevin says having such a big hairstyle can be problematic, "It’s always getting caught in trees, and one time I even slammed my hair in the car door! And I hate it when people touch it without asking my permission first!"

However, on the upside, she added that it's very comfortable to lie on in bed, "It provides the perfect pillow. I sleep very well."

As you may have noticed we're having something of a Guinness World Records fest on Newslite today - to mark the release of the 2012 edition of the wonderfully bizarre records book.
