A Russian woman who stopped cutting her hair for a bet has turned into a real-life Rapunzel after growing it out for 14 years. Daria Gubanova’s amazing head of thick brunette hair now comes down almost to her ankles.
And the 27-year-old, who lives in the city of Barnaul in south-central Russia’s Altai Krai region, says she will not trim her impressive mane until it reaches her toes.
So she stopped visiting her hairdresser and began letting her hair go free. Now, she is hailed as a modern day Rapunzel thanks to her incredible look.
Daria’s hair is now estimated to measure in at about 1.5 metres (almost six feet) long.
And she has gained herself an army of admirers who wish to follow in her footsteps boasting more than 218,000 followers on social media.
