2. Having the world record for highest top fade is something to brag about. 

Benny Harlem is easy to spot in a crowded place. It is not just for his fashion sense but for his sensational record-breaking hair. Benny made his way into the Guinness World Records in 2018 as the titleholder for Tallest High Top Fade. His hairstyle stands 20.5 inches (52 cm) tall, and to perfect his perfect updo, the model sometimes has to take up to two hours to shape and comb his hair. The dad, from Los Angeles, California, has passed on his stunning hair genes to his daughter Jaxyn. Benny Harlem wants to inspire people of all cultures to embrace their true identity by appreciating their own natural hair.

Benny Harlen first started getting attention for his hair after posting a magnificent Instagram photo with his daughter in 2016, showcasing both of their luxurious manes. The images, of course, then went viral, earning Benning a whopping 381,000 followers. Benny, his wife, and daughter now have become known for their inspiring “hair goals.” All members of the Harlem family exhibit a passion for natural hair care. Benny and the rest of his family use homemade shampoos prepared with unprocessed and pure ingredients like berries and coconuts. In turn, they are also taking care of their overall health so that their hair is well nourished.

1. The record for tallest married couple is relationship goals.

Sun Mingming, and his wife Xu Yan, of China, was certified as the world’s tallest couple by Guinness World Records in 2016, with their combined height of nearly 13 feet and 11 inches.  At 7 feet 9 inches tall, Sun easily towers over everyone else who is in the room. Xu, who stands just shy of 6 feet 2 inches tall, stands above most people in the room. You may be curious about Yao Ming. Just so you know, the former NBA center for the Houston Rockets is one of China’s most famous tall people. However, he is 7 feet 6 inches tall. 

The couple had married back in 2013 in Beijing, and both are athletes, not surprisingly enough. Sun, who is 33 years old, plays basketball, while his wife, 29 years old, is a handball player. The fortunate couple offered their recipe for a happy and trusting marriage, telling the records keeping group, “No one is perfect. Therefore you need to support one another daily.” I guess you won’t be finding any step ladders or footstools in their home.
