Long hair has always been popular in human culture - for both women and men. Thanks to his hair, the biblical hero Samson received his inhuman strength, princess Rapunzel's hair allowed her to escape from the high tower, and braided hair symbolized youth, beauty and even independence among different peoples.

In the contemporary world, the fashion for different hairstyles changes from decade to decade, long hair went in and out of the thread - but there were always people who took care of their hair with love. Of course, modern cosmetics provide great opportunities in terms of hair care - and people are willing to use this.

For example, there is a whole community on Reddit called "Long Hair", dedicated, as its founders themselves note, "to anyone interested in growing, maintaining, and styling long hair". As of today, the community has around 398K members. Not all of them have the strength, patience and natural predisposition to grow long hair, but who, in the end, prevents you from looking at these beautiful photos?

Bored Panda has collected for you the most popular, spectacular and simply brilliant pictures of the members of this community, so now feel free to scroll to the very end, admire this beauty with us and, who knows, maybe today you will decide to grow long hair? After all, it's so beautiful!

By the way, in many cultural traditions of the peoples of the world, it is forbidden to cut long hair or, moreover, to shave - both for men and women. For example, Sikhs are forbidden to cut their hair throughout their entire lives, and their religion considers compliance with this ban to be one of its most important attributes.

Interestingly, according to some studies, women are more predisposed to have long hair - after all, the hormone estrogen, which, in particular, is responsible for the lifespan of each hair, is present in the female body in much greater quantities than in the male one. So it turns out that the "life span" of a woman's hair is on average 2.5 times longer than that of a man's.

Probably the most popular bearer of long hair in modern culture is Rapunzel from an old German fairy tale and, more importantly, the famous Disney cartoon. Devoted fans specifically calculated the length of the princess' hair and got about 70 feet. By the way, in order to make Rapunzel's hair look realistic on the screen, a special computer program was made to calculate the movement of almost 100 thousand individual strands.

But in the real world, someone has even broken the record of a Disney princess. Asha Mandela from Florida entered the Guinness Book of Records back in 2009 when her locks were almost 20 feet long. Now, thirteen years later, the woman can boast 110 feet of her locks.

If, according to statistics, the average American spends about $77.17 a year on hair care, one can only guess how much her hair costs the world record holder. However, such beauty, we are sure, it is definitely worth it!
