Chinese women who only cut their hair Once in their lives show off their 5ft locks while washing their hair in the river

These Chinese women have taken their long hair to new lengths making a Guinness World Record as the world’s first long hair village.

The Red Yao women, a minority ethnic group from Huangluo Yao Village in China, have an average hair length of 5.5 feet. The longest locks measure more than 6.8 feet.

Incredibly, the women cut their hair only once in their lives, at 16-years-old, before they start their search for a husband.

Thought to be so sacred that only their husband or child could look upon their locks, if a man happen to stumble upon a woman not wearing her scarf, he was forced to live with her family for three years as their son-in-law. 

While many women would be daunted with the task of managing hair this long, the Red Yao women make hairstyling look easy as they twist and wrap their mane, flicking it as they go.

The Red Yao people believe that the women’s long hair brings longevity, wealth and good fortune.
The longer the hair, the more fortunate one would be.

During the summer and autumn months, the women wash their hair in the Jinjiang River.
