“It’s all about how you feel yourself, not what others think, that’s the good thing about Mohawks,” told Watanabe.
Watanabe was in New York City to promote the 2013 edition of the Guinness World Records book, which is including him for the first time. “I always wanted to have the tallest Mohawk,” he said. Watanabe revealed his hair-do at a press event in New York to mark the launch of the new book. "It was a lot of work but I am happy to have achieved the world's No 1," he told reporters. He further added, “To get it into shape it takes three stylists, three canisters of hair spray and a bottle of hair gel,” Watanabe said. Without gel and hairspray, the hair reaches his knees.
"It is too expensive to do the Mohawk every day, so I only do it for occasions like this and parties," he said.
Watanabe said he began his mission to get into the Guinness Book of World Records when he was 20 and that his 10-year-old daughter has already decided that she intends to beat his record one day.
