Guinness accepts redhead record set at Skyline

September 28, 2010

NEW — 2 p.m. Sept. 28, 2010

The redhead record is official.

Sammamish photographer Anne Lindsay has received a letter from Guinness World Records confirming that she organized the “largest gathering of people with natural red hair.”

Redheads set the record July 17 at Skyline High School. Although 901 redheads were photographed at the stadium, Guinness officials only counted 890. The other 11 had problems with their paperwork, Lindsay said.

The photographer is selling photographs, certificates and T-shirts commemorating the event here.

Lindsay plans to hold the second annual Redheads and More Redheads Day on July 16, 2011. She isn’t aiming to set another redheaded world record, unless another group breaks her original record. Instead, she hopes to break another record — like the record for the most people applying sunscreen at one time, or the record for the most redheaded dolls in one place.
