Do you remember the fairy tale character Rapunzel? Well, let me introduce you to Alia Nasyrova, a 33-year-old woman from Latvia who could easily be mistaken for the real-life Rapunzel. With hair that reaches an incredible length of 90 inches, she truly embodies the enchanting charm of this beloved heroine.
Growing and showcasing her long hair has become Alia’s passion and even her profession. For the past two decades, she has dedicated herself to nurturing her luscious locks, drawing inspiration from the captivating long-haired heroines in her favorite fairy tales.
On her website, Alia shares her dreams of exploring the world and meeting other long-haired beauties. She sees her hair as a work of art and wants to share its mesmerizing beauty with the world.
Maintaining hair of this nature is no easy task. Alia spends an hour each day washing and air-drying her hair. When she goes out, she carries a day bag filled with 22 pounds of liquids, including shampoo, conditioner, and various hair accessories. She even uses a yoga mat to perform exercises that keep her supple brown locks healthy and strong.
Alia’s husband, Ivan Balaban, adores her exquisite hair and takes extra care to avoid damaging it. He keeps his distance, as if cuddling up to the wall, and treats her hair with the utmost respect. In fact, he even has conversations with her braid, sometimes asking it to move slightly.
Managing such extremely long hair comes with many challenges. Alia recalls a childhood incident when someone accidentally got chewing gum stuck in her hair. Removing it meant making the difficult decision to cut out a clump of hair. Such incidents underline the intricacies of maintaining such extraordinary hair.
It’s worth noting that Alia may be called a “real-life Rapunzel,” but she isn’t the record holder for the longest hair. That title belongs to Xie Qiuping from China, whose hair measures a staggering 18 feet 5 inches, according to the Guinness World Records.
We truly admire Alia Nasyrova for her dedication and perseverance in cultivating her beautiful long locks. Managing hair of this length is undoubtedly a challenge.
