VIDEO: Lithuanians put their lengthy beautiful locks on display at the annual “World’s Longest Hair Competition,” on Sunday, November 12 in the city of Kaunas. For the 8th year in a row, over 100 women aged 2 to 54 took part. Lithuania’s new national Rapunzel is a 21-year-old student named Sandra Grigonyte, with hair measuring 166 centimetres – long but still shy of the competition’s record holder in 2013 with 245 centimetres of hair. Grigonyte won an all expanses paid trip for two to the European Parliament in Strasbourg or Brussels.
