Ural Beauty - Long Braid 2012/ Уральская Краса - Длинная Коса 2012

Уральская Краса - Длинная Коса 2012 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.

Although this is only the third Ekaterinburg's contest in row, this famous show might already be considered as the most prominent long hair contest in Russia and beyond! It was simply the most impressive and enchanting long hair contest in recent Russian history!

The girls expressed themselves and impressed the jury by singing, showing off at the catwalk dressed in traditional Russian clothing, and demonstrating their sport performances, obviously to show that their hair does not have any limitations for them when it comes to an active sporting life.

Again a new national record was set. In 2011, participants and other long haired volunteers were braided together. A chain of braids was then measuring: 18,18m which was a national record. Until 12 June 2012, when 76 girls and women were again braided together and formed a chain of hair but to set a new record they were also asked to dance for 5 minutes clockwise and for 5 minutes the other way around on the Russian song: 'Ural Ryabinushka'. The record was confirmed by an official committee from the Russian Book of Records. The total length of the braid measured 32,76m, a prestigious record that is almost twice as long as last year's braid!
