Canada-based Sarwan Singh beats own Guinness record on having longest beard


Sarwan Singh of Canada has beaten his own Guinness World Record of having the longest beard on a living person in the world.

Sarwan Singh’s glorious beard has earned him the record title for the third time, the Guinness World Record (GWR) said on March 22, 2023.

“It’s a little greyer these days, but more fabulous than ever,” the GWR said in a release.

Sarwan has never trimmed his beard and had first set the Guinness World Record in 2008 when his beard was 2.33 m (7 ft 8 in) long. He had smashed the previous record of 1.77 m (5 ft 9 in) held by Sweden’s Birger Pellas.

Sarwan then had his beard measured again on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Italy in 2010, extending his record with a beard of 2.49 m (8 ft 2.5 in).

It was then re-measured on October 15, 2022, and found to be 2.54 m (8 ft 3 in) long.

Sarwan, who considers his beard to be a gift from God, said he has never had any difficulties with its upkeep. He says he has always overcome any challenges that are presented with having a long beard and often wishes it were even longer.
