Ural Beauty - Long Braid 2011/ Уральская Краса - Длинная Коса 2011

Уральская Краса - Длинная Коса 2011 Ekaterinburg, Russia

The 'Ural beauty - long braid' competition, or in Russian: 'Уральская краса - длинная коса' is an annual long hair show held in shopping mall Alatir, Ekaterinburg on 12 June, the Day of Russia. An excellent day to show the world that wearing long hair is still Russia's symbol of feminine beauty despite the more comfortable short hair styles.

This year, 26 girls were elected out of 50 subscribers for the final contest. The show started with the presentation on the catwalk in traditional Russian clothing and their hair in braids and artistic updos. In the next part of the show, the girls were walking in a procession on the catwalk in blue and red dresses and revealed their full hair length!

We also witnessed a new nation record of the longest braid of human hair ever made in Russia. All girls were standing behind each other, ordered from old to young while their hair was braided together. The poor girls were stuck on each other for at least half an hour, before the jury was convinced that it was indeed one long braid. It measured 18,18m, a new record!

Again the girls were gathered on stage for the award ceremony and every participant got presents from the sponsors, because in fact they all were winners. But mother and daughter Анна and Любовь Рогозникова made the most impression to the jury and they won a trip to Turkey.
