Real-Life Rapunzel Claims Real Beauty Comes From The Length Of A Woman's Hair

Real-Life Rapunzel Claims Real Beauty Comes From The Length Of A Woman's Hair

Alyona, 34, is living out every little girl's fantasy with real life Rapunzel hair that measures 1.8 metres long.



Alyona is living out a princess fantasy with real-life Rapunzel hair that measures 1.8 metres long and can touch the ground when she walks.

The 34-year-old has been growing out her hair since the age of five, and believes the real beauty of a woman is the 'length of her hair'.

She started her Instagram page @alenuwka_longhair last year, posting incredible pictures of her luscious blonde locks in scenic backdrops to her 13.3K followers.

Alyona said she often receives marriage proposals from men around the world, with some even asking if they can 'sniff' her hair - which is not the strangest thing we've heard of on the internet.

However, the Insta-model said she laughs off such strange requests and doesn't entertain their advances.

Alyona became obsessed with keeping her hair long since she was a child, taking onboard her mother's advice that a 'long braid adorns a woman'. She has now grown her hair to a neck aching 180 centimetres with plans to grow it out even more.

The 34-year-old said: "From childhood, my mother told me how long a braid adorns a woman, her words live in my heart and soul throughout life.

"For me, true beauty is in naturalness, which is why my hair is so long, it is the manifestation of my inner world, part of me and my soul."

She said: "When people see the length of my hair, they can't hide their enthusiastic looks and emotions, it's very nice. Also, many come up and say how unusual and beautiful it is nowadays.

"My subscribers are the best and always delight me with positive and good comments addressed to me. The most unusual comments are a request to sniff my hair."

She added: "Аll my near and dear people admire my natural beauty and the length of my hair. They are proud that they know me and have the honour of telling about me.

"A lot of men admire my hair, want to meet, travel, invite me to visit their country, make offers of hand and heart. I can laugh it off correctly, often I don't answer messages so as not to give a man hope."

Alyona has no plans to grow her hair longer, but said the most important thing is that she stands out from the crowd by being original and staying true to herself.

Alyona also combs her hair twice a day to get rid of any tangles and trims her ends every six months, keeping her locks healthy and strong.

Speaking about her haircare process that can take hours, Alyona said: "I wash my hair once a week, this process takes about an hour, given the preparation before and after washing. I comb my hair at least twice a day, I usually braid my hair, make it into a bun."

With hair down past her feet, there's bound to be a few hazards but Alyona said: "I can't notice any situations with long hair. The only thing is to accidentally step on the hair." Ouch.

If you want to live out a Rapunzel / Disney's Tangled style fantasy with tumbling princess hair, then Alyona has a few tips for growing your hair past the awkward in-between stage: "The main secret in long beautiful hair is a great desire to have such beauty. You cannot doubt it for a moment.

"Аll women need to remember that at all times the real beauty of women was evaluated precisely by the beauty and length of her hair."
