Pictures of this baby went viral thanks to her amazing hair – now she’s landed a modeling contract

I often marvel at a baby born with a full head of hair. It can be the case that their impressive mane goes eventually falls out and is replaced with new hair.

In the case of Baby Chanco, her amazing locks are very much here to stay. The Japanese baby went viral last year after her mom Mami Kano posted pictures of her on Instagram.

Now at just 12 months old she’s landed her very own modeling contract, much to the delight of her adoring hair fans.

The social media account, called baby Chanco’s “hair diary,” got more than 300,000 followers in a few months.

“I’m so surprised with the reaction, but also very proud of the praise from many countries,” Kano told People magazine, adding that her girl has a “lighthearted smile and luxurious head of hair [that] doesn’t match her age.”

On Jan. 7, Baby Chanco appeared in Pantene’s new ad next to Japanese television announcer Sato Kondo, according to People.

“We went straight to her mother because Chanco’s personality and special character matches our image for women we want to support,” said P&G Japan haircare associate brand director Yoshiaki Okura, according to People magazine.

“We feel [Chanco’s] beautiful hair has strong power that makes people positively move forward,” she added. “And we also support her mother’s positiveness to post wonderful moments with Chanco.”

‘Full head of hair’

 

According to Popsugar, Chanco was born Dec. 23 Japan and “came out of the womb with a full head of hair.

Mom Mami Kano said she doesn’t plan on cutting her girl’s hair.

“I prefer to keep her hair long, and in the future I want to try some new arrangements, like braids,” she said.
