2010-02-25 - A Vietnamese man who died this week and whose hair was so long it resembled a boa constrictor, may have had the world's longest mane, reports said Thursday.
Officially Xie Qiuping of China is recognized of having the world's longest hair which measures in at 5.627 meters.
Unofficially Tran Van Hay of Vietnam is the record holder at 6.2 meters. Tran Van Hay is still waiting to have the world record authenticated.
