Britain’s hairiest baby has turned six-months-old – and has already had SEVEN haircuts.
Vienna Bellingham stunned doctors with her long locks when she was born to mother Jemma, 27.
And the tot’s hair has continued to grow at an unprecedented rate that has meant, despite her tender age, she has already needed several trims.
Hairdresser Jemma, from Plymouth, Devon, has revealed she has cut Vienna’s hair seven times – and has never seen anyone’s grow so fast.
She said: “I can’t believe the speed in which her hair is growing, I’ve had to cut her fringe seven times.
“Being a hairdresser I never knew hair could grow this quickly.
“We have decided to keep her hair growing and clip her fringe back so it doesn’t effect her eyes. We keep putting clips ponytails and I’m about to try plaits.”
Jemma said that people often mistake Vienna for a doll because of her hair, and that her son Rio is also amazed by his baby sister – and even copies her hair style.
She added: “Her older brother Rio likes trying to copy her hair as he has long hair too.
“For her age she’s had lots of cuts already. She’s so good, she doesn’t bat an eye lid at anything, we’re really lucky.”
Jemma said it was lucky that she was a hairdresser as she can tend to Vienna’s long locks at no expense.
She continued: “I’m a hair dresser so we’ll be trying out lots of different styles as she grows up.
“She’s like a living doll, it’s great practice for me.
“It does matt at the back quite a lot, it takes a lot of shampooing, conditioning, and brushing, and we’ve had to remove a few dreadlocks already.”
Speaking at the time of Vienna’s birth, Jemma said she knew her daughter would be born with a full head of hair before the delivery.
She said: “She is so adorable and her hair is on another planet. She had absolutely loads of hair when she was born.
”Every single nurse was shocked and said they had never seen so much hair on a newborn.
“I had a little idea – I had an image in my head of what she was going to look like so thought that maybe she would have lots of hair.
“I also had a lot of heartburn which they say means that your baby will be born with a full head of hair.
“But I didn’t think it was going to be so thick.”
“I thought that she was going to have lots of hair when we found out we were going to have her – it just came to me one day, I just had a feeling but I wasn’t even having any heartburn at that point.”
Vienna was born in January this year, and lives in Plymouth, with her mum and brother, and dad Michael, 31, a business owner.
