Guinness World Records certified Simone Williams’ hair as the biggest female afro on Earth in 2020.
Her hair measures some 1.5m in circumference.
Williams told the BBC that for black women, natural hear symbolises beauty and acceptance.
“I feel that when our hair is natural, it’s the truest form of our self,’ the 32 year old asserted.
However, because her hair attracts attention, she has a word of caution for the curious.
“Please don’t ever touch my hair. Don’t walk up to me to touch my hair,” Williams says.
She told the BBC that the polite thing to do is ask.
But she explained that she would most likely say no.
