Redheads Set New Guinness World Record

Seeing Red: Gingers Set a New Guinness Record

From lightning-fast lipstick applications to the longest ear hair (yep, you read that right), when it comes to setting Guinness World Records, the topics at hand are practically limitless.

Adding to the latest entry of the book of extremes is the Seattle suburb of Sammamish, where those with a variation of the MC1R gene flocked over the weekend. The mission? To assemble the largest gathering of redheads in one location in efforts to beat the record of 250. Dyed hair was not allowed. With 901 natural redheads in attendance, and entrants coming from as far as Arizona and Minnesota, the record-busting efforts were a success. Love beauty Guinness tidbits as much as we do? Take our quiz to find out more about records from the beauty world.
