This is the Rapunzel family! Where did they get their name from? Mum Tere Lynn Svetlecich Russell, 43, and her daughters have a combined hair length of over four meters. The mom has been growing her hair all her life, a ‘tradition’ that she’s passed along to her daughters. However, the woman says she has never forced her daughters to grow their hair long and that they are free to cut it whenever they want. As you can imagine, grooming all that hair is a time-consuming task, but the girls say they have gotten used to it over the years.
