Real Life Rapunzel Hair Is Going To Be Your New Instagram Beauty Obsession
Super long hair in the internet's newest obsession. See the real life long hair 'Rapunzel' trend at mtv.co.uk
Our obsession with hair extensions is no new thing, but forget clip-ins and tapes because the latest beauty trend everyone is loving over on Instagram is real life Rapunzel hair. You know, like the hair you would naturally have if your mum hadn't insisted you get a hair cut every eight weeks for your whole entire life.
To be fair, super long hair is notoriously difficult to maintain, but keeping up that healthy, full and glossy look without breakage is possible with a whole lot of love and attention - as illustrated by the gals showing off their amazing hair on Insta.
First up we're going to need to talk about Australian Rapunzel Trisha Reibelt, who has been growing out her hair since 2004. Yes you did read that right, since TWO THOUSAND AND FOUR.
Despite recently lopping off an entire foot of hair, her locks are basically still ankle length and to show them off even more, she's even dyed them every colour in the rainbow.
Just check out that swish:
If you like your hair a little more natural, prepare to fall head over heels for Sara Beygi, aka Insta model Madame Kush.
At just 5ft 6, her hair measures 3ft 6 and reaches all the way down past her hips.
Basically it's more than long enough to dangle it out the window and let a nice prince clamber up it, although we're not sure she'd be into that just in case it pulled out some of those precious long locks of hers.
If you were wondering how long it has taken her to get hair this lengthy, Sara hasn't had a hair cut in five years (so since she was 14) after having an argument with her hair stylist.
"I was like, ‘I’m done with you,’ ” she tells Vogue. “I never got around to getting another hairstylist, so I just did my own thing and boom, this happened.”
While Sara's hair obviously looks amazing, the fact it takes half an hour to properly wash and about a zillion more hours to air dry after might slightly put you off doing it yourself.
