The GWR said on its website:

"Nigerian wigmaker Helen Williams has created the world’s longest handmade wig, measuring 351.28 metres (1,152 ft 5 in). Helen spent 11 days and over two million naira (£2,031; $2,493) making the wig. After constructing the underlay with wig-cap netting and black fabric attached to a bicycle helmet, she completed the hairpiece using 1,000 bundles of hair, 12 cans of hair spray, 35 tubes of hair glue, and 6,250 hair clips."

While speaking on the challenges she faced while making the wig, Helen said it was difficult sourcing the materials.

She told the GWR:

“Finding the materials to make the longest wig was not an easy task. My experience as a wigmaker helped a lot. At some point, I felt exhausted. However, friends and family encouraged me. I did not want to let them down, so I maintained my focus. The outcome is the longest handmade wig in the world.”
