Meet The Real Life Rapunzel

Gu Meiying has been growing her hair since she was age 24 and it has currently grown to a length of 2.52 meters.

However, Meiying is not being lazy; she believes her hair to be a good luck charm.


The 59-year-old also declined a $3,000 offer to surrender her flowing tresses that are roughly twice her height.

Amazingly, her hair is very long that it can take an entire week to dry and it is usually wrapped around her body three-and-a-half times.

She currently wants to double the length of her locks, to more than 5.627 meters in order that she can be included in the Guinness Book of World Records.




Chinese woman Xie Quiping is the current record holder; she started growing her hair in 1973 from the age of thirteen.
