When you think of Guinness World Records, often times your mind jumps to people who stand 8 feet tall, run through 16 window panes in under 30 seconds, or something extreme. But this is not the case when it comes to Aevin Dugas. She owns a world record for something a little less extreme, but just as impressive — the world’s largest afro.
