The Seven Sutherland Sisters
World's Longest Hair
Hailing from New York the Sutherland sisters originally toured as "Sutherland Concert of Seven Sisters and One Brother." Despite being a musical family they were better known for their amazing hair. They were said to have had a collective length of 37 feet of hair between them. They toured with the like of WW Cole's as well as Barnum. Some time around 1884 they put out "The Seven Sutherland Sister's Hair Grower" and made a fortune. Over their years of touring 2 of the sisters passed away and were replaced with other women with amazingly long hair.
