Have you ever dreamed of having luscious, long locks of hair like in fairytales? Well, meet a real-life Rapunzel – Angelica Baranova from Pokosnoye village, Russia. No extensions or anything – she just simply hasn’t cut her hair short since she was five years old!

The now-28-year-old has her hair almost sweeping the floor and, obviously, gets tons of attention for it. People used to come up to her on the street, ask tons of questions and even try to touch her beautiful locks, which is why she usually wears scarves now and hides her hair when going out.

It all started when she was still a child and her parents wouldn’t let Angelica cut her hair as they believed she had a great chance to let it grow, since she had always had it so thick and healthy. Angelica has even won a competition called “Russian braid” and received the main prize which was an apartment in Moscow! Ever since that encouragement, she has just let it grow more and more.

When asked how she takes care of such a spectacular hairdo, Angelica didn’t think it was anything out of the ordinary. She simply washes it twice a week, adds a little coconut or burdock oil for a few minutes, rinses it off, and then just leaves it to air dry.

Check out these pictures Angelica has shared! #HairGoals or #NoThanks?
