A 24-year-old British Sikh woman sporting six-inch-long facial hair has entered the Guinness World Records as the youngest female with a beard. Harnaam Kaur from Slough in Berkshire in south-east England described her entry as “absolutely humbling". “Now with a beard measuring as long as six inches in places, she overcame years of bullying to take ownership of her appearance and achieve this record title at the age of 24 years 282 days,” her record citation reads. Ms. Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that can result in the growth of excess facial hair. She describes herself on social media as “Bearded Dame, Body confidence activist, Anti Bully Activist, Plus Size Model” and dresses in a Sikh turban.
