Vivian Wheeler (USA) hold the world record for the longest female beard on a living person! She began shaving her face at the young age of 7, but stopped trimming the facial growth after her mother passed away in 1993. In April 2011 her beard measured 25.5 cm (10.04 in)! Vivian was born with both male and female reproductive organs, but doctors were instructed by her father to remove the male parts at birth as her mother wanted a daughter. This did not remove her condition of hypertrichosis, which is when your body grows an abnormal amount of hair.
