World’s Hairiest Girl Celebrates Guinness Title

Supatra Sasuphan from Bangkok was previously shunned by her classmates and called her by names such as "Wolf Girl" and "Monkey Face". But now she finally has a reason to celebrate. The 11-year-old was awarded the title of "World's Hairiest Girl" by the Guinness World Records.

"I'm very happy to be in the Guinness World Records," she told the Daily Mail. "A lot of people have to do a lot to get in. All I did was answer a few questions and then they gave it to me."

Supatra says she became very popular at school following her Guinness recognition. "Being hairy makes me special," she said. "This the happiest day of my life!"

Supatra is one of just 50 known sufferers of Ambras Syndrome - caused by a faulty chromosome - to be documented since the Middle Ages. Before the disease was understood, sufferers were branded 'werewolves.' 

She has thick hair growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back. Doctors tried to remove the hair with laser treatment when she was two-years-old but despite numerous sessions it kept growing back as thickly as before. Supatra's hair has got increasingly thicker as she has grown up so her mother has to cut it back regularly for her.

Her father hopes that someday she will be cured.

  3. You guys are missing the point: her hair grows VERY fast. That means if she shaves before school, it probably is already breaking out of the skin and becomes visible again by lunch time! And that must itch like hell and ruin her skin, which, at her age, is very soft and damageable. Her parents are obviously getting doctors' advice and were told to wait. I hate retards who open their mouth...
