A stunning blonde who stopped cutting her hair for a bet has turned into a real-life Rapunzel after growing it out for 14 years.
Russian beauty Daria Gubanova’s amazing head of thick golden hair now comes down almost to her ankles.
And the 27-year-old, who lives in the city of Barnaul in south-central Russia’s Altai Krai region, says she will not trim her impressive mane until it reaches her toes.
Ms Gubanova began growing her blonde hair 14 years ago when a friend bet her that she could not grow her hair long enough to braid it.
So she stopped visiting her hairdresser and began letting her hair go free.
Now, she is hailed as a modern day Rapunzel thanks to her incredible look.
Daria, who has more than 218k followers on social media, estimated that her hair is 1.5 metres (almost six feet) long.
And she has gained herself an army of admirers who wish to follow in her footsteps.
Social media commentator ‘_mom_alena’ said: “I admire the length of your hair. I am trying to grow mine, but at least another five years to go.”
And one identified as ‘lm0357’ added: “Like a goddess…”
One woman wrote: “You remind me of a Barbie doll. I love everything about you. Keep it up.”
Another added: “My friend showed me your videos on Facebook and I just wanted to tell you I am fascinated by your hair. It’s so beautiful.”
Rapunzel is a character in a Brothers Grimm fairy tale who is confined to a tower but lets down her long golden hair so a prince can climb up to her. More photos below
