Going to the hairdressers can sometimes be a chore but one woman doesn’t bother to get her hair cut at all - in fact, she hasn’t bothered in 35 YEARS.
Gu Meiying, 59, has been growing her hair since she was 24-years-old and it has now grown to a staggering 2.52 metres in length.
But Meiying, of the Miao ethnic tribe in Yunna Province, China, isn’t being lazy - she believes her hair to be a good luck charm.
She even turned down a £2,000 offer to give up her flowing locks - which are around TWICE her height.
Meiying said: “My hair is a treasure and my totem, my lucky charm.
“I also think that long hair is good for health.
"I will keep growing it and will aim for a Guinness World Record.”
Incredibly, her hair is so long that it can take a whole WEEK to dry and it can be wrapped around her body three-and-a-half times.
Meiying now wants to double the length of her hair - to over 5.627 metres - so that she can be included in the Guiness Book of World Records.
The current record holder is Xie Qiuping, another Chinese woman, who began growing her hair in 1973 from the age of 13-years-old.
