Meet the World's Largest Ball of Human Hair, Hoss!

Hoss the Hairball

This colossal hairball weighs a hefty 225.13 pounds. Initially created by stylist Steve Warden, Hoss achieved his record-breaking weight through Ripley’s Shave the Beard and Make It Weird! campaign at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) annual conference, raising more than $30,000 for Give Kids The World Village, an 89-acre, whimsical non-profit in Central Florida that provides critically ill children and their families with magical weeklong wish vacations at no cost.
