Why Your Mohawk Will Always be Second Longest
Some are curly, some short, some make people’s heads look like some sort of medieval weapon. Some are long. Some are very long, and some are ridiculously long. Directly following the latter category in terms of length sits a special category I have dubbed “Watanabe”. There is only one mohawk in this category, and it belongs to Kazuhiro Watanabe, a designer from Japan who was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 as the human being possessing the world’s tallest mohawk.
Kazuhiro Watanabe’s record setting ‘hawk.
I could bewilder you with facts such as the measurable length of the hairdo (three feet and eight point six inches long), or the fact that to style the mohawk takes two stylists, three cans of hairspray and a bottle of gel, but these would only lead the reader to the same conclusion I came to: even if I grow a mohawk it will never be this long. Wantanabe has said it took fifteen years to grow the mohawk to its current length. Unless you are part of an ancient religion which actually worships mohawks, I sincerely doubt you have what it takes to dethrone Watanabe.
