MINNESOTA, US (ANN): A man from Minnesota in the United States has just set a new record for the world’s tallest full mohawk in the Guinness World Records, which stands at 108.2 centimeters or 42.5 inches.

Joseph Grisamore said he felt “like a champion” to hold the title, as seen on Guinness World Records’ Instagram page today, Aug 28.

It takes Grisamore around an hour to set up his mohawk, sometimes with the help of his wife or a hairdresser. In 2006, he attempted to take home the record for the world’s tallest spike mohawk, but did not succeed.

The Guinness title holder revealed he just let his hair grow out naturally. Grisamore has not shaved his hair since 2013 as he aimed to get the title for the world’s tallest full mohawk.

Record holders are reaching new heights in the Guinness World Records 2021 edition, especially with the towering locks of Joseph Grisamore. ⁣ ⁣ After previously trying to obtain an official record title, Joseph from Park Rapids, Minnesota (USA) is now officially on the pages of this year’s book after achieving the world’s tallest full Mohican Mohawk. ⁣ ⁣ Measuring 1.08 m (42.5 inches) in height, this lengthy hairdo can easily be spotted from a distance. ⁣ ⁣ During his time in quarantine, Joseph has been an essential worker at a healthcare facility in Minnesota and has tried to look for silver lining amid the global changes. ⁣ ⁣ One these includes becoming a Guinness World Records title holder and being featured in the 2021 book, a feat he is incredibly proud of. ⁣ ⁣ -------------------------------------------------------⁣ #guinnessworldrecords #hair #hairstyle #haircut #hairstyles #hairstylist #haircolor #hairdresser #hairgoals #hairdo #hairfashion #hairoftheday #haircare #hairsalon #haircolour #hairdye #hairofinstagram #hairideas #hairextensions #hairs #hairinspo #hairtutorial #HAIRCUTS #hairy #hairstyling #hairvideo #hairinspiration #hairlove #hairvideos #hairbrained⁣
