Katy White’s hair is almost as long as she is tall. Measuring 3ft 4in, the 4ft 11in girl’s golden locks flow all the way down to the back of her knees. In her life, Katy has only cut her hair three times. Unsurprisingly, the 12-year-old from Ammanford, Wales, isn’t short of admirers. Her mother Barbara says:
There was a time, when Katy was about six, when she decided to cut two big chunks out of the front of her hair. I saw the hair in the bin and assumed Katy had thrown a doll away. When I pulled the hair out I turned around and saw that Katy had two huge steps in the front of her hair. Apart from that she’s only ever had it trimmed at the hairdressers, and only three times.
However, Katy’s hair also creates some problems. Barbara says:
It may be beautiful but it can also be pretty deadly. She practices the martial art Choi Kwang Do, and to do that we have to put her hair in a plait. The only problem is that when she spins, her hair whips round, and people have to move out of the way. It’s like a secret weapon.
On average, the girl’s hair takes an hour to wash and another hour to dry.
1. Katy White, aged 12, is 4ft 11in and her hair, which flows to the back of her knees, measures 3ft 4in.
2. In her 12 year life, Katy, who wears her hair in a plait mostly, has only had her hair cut three times (apart from the time she cut her own fringe).
People stop me to ask about my hair all the time, I’m used to it now. I can’t imagine having it cut, although I do have it tied back most of the time, especially when I’m in school.
Impressive as it is, though, Katy’s hair is not yet record-breaking. That distinction currently belongs to Asha Mandela and her 55ft long dreadlocks.
3. On average, Katy’s hair takes an hour to wash and just as long to dry but a local hairdresser, who measured it, said it’s in great condition.
4. Despite having trouble with it when she practices sports, Katy says she can’t imagine ever cutting her hair.
5. Despite its head-turning capabilities, a spokesperson from the Guinness World Record said Katy’s hair is not yet record-breaking.
6. Lots of people apparently stop her to marvel at the length of her hair, which is almost the same height as her.
7. Having never officially had her hair measured, hairdresser Lisa Bryan from Bedazzled, in Ammanford, stepped forward to measure Katy’s mane.
