In The Event You Missed This Event
Zahab Khan accomplished something most people are physically incapable of: donating over five feet of hair to Children With Hair Loss, thus securing a Guinness World Records title for the most hair donated by an individual.
After getting to know Zahab Khan on The Longhairs podcast, we knew we had to be there to witness this historic event. Her record-breaking donation was covered internationally, from The Washington Post and CBS (WUSA9), to NPR and The Indian Express—but The Longhairs had boots on the ground.
A 2-Man Operation
As El Rubio asked if El Garvinski and I would be willing to travel cross-country to Virginia, we were nodding in agreement before he could finish. Our mission: document and closely support Zahab’s attempt at the most hair donated by an individual.
Failure was not an option.
Along with some heavy meeting and greeting, we had the privilege of delivering brief remarks, saying nice things about our friends at Children With Hair Loss, congratulating Zahab, and thanking Riya for her efforts.
We made donations of $500 each to Zahab’s GoFundMe and the Zahab Neha Foundation, and we had longhairs on the spot to provide extra hair ties at the event.
We got the mission accomplished, with Garv capturing the action. Witness five feet of hair getting snipped, hear my eloquent remarks (I thought so 😂), and watch Zahab set a stunning world record.
5 FEET OF HAIR!? That’s insane.
Amazing hair. So proud of her and so stoked you guys were there to represent. Great blazer Spencerino!
Crazy to witness–looking forward to seeing donations like this at The Great Cut 2024!
maybe Hairfreaky, who must take care not putting his feet on his ends….https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3814/33333976602_cb981859d0_b.jpg
