TRINITY, N.C. — A baby in Trinity is turning lots of heads after being born with a full head of hair.

Collyns Lorelei Cox was born on December 30th with thick, black hair. The family loves her hair and says the “higher the hair, the closer to Jesus.”

“We just embrace the crazy,” said mother Brandy Adams Cox. “We used to brush it and try and fix it and it always wound back up like this. She's all natural.”

And since her birth, Collyns has grown even more hair.

No matter where they go, Collyns turns heads. People ask if she has a wig and say she looks like Elvis.

Brandy says she doesn't blame anyone for staring and asking questions. Frankly, she's still in shock herself.

“I'm still amazed at it myself so it doesn’t bother me at all,” the mother said about the attention. “I just stare at her myself so I can't blame anyone else.”
