Barber Collects Record-Setting Hairball
Years ago a customer asked barber Henry Coffer to save the hair he swept up from his shop floor. The man, a farmer, spread it around his watermelon patch to keep coyotes out. Henry kept saving the hair cuttings even after the farmer stopped raising melons. The hair collection grew daily, weekly, yearly until today.
Henry's hairball weighs around 167 pounds (75.7kg). He'll get an official weight soon and submit it to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Henry is the only barber in Charleston. He started out 36 years ago charging $1 and now charges $10. Many of his customers have been with him for years and he has no plans to retire.
