Pasaulio Ilgaplaukės Kaunas 2015 / Long-Haired World 2015

The tradition of searching for Lithuania's longest hair continues in the Žalgirio Arena in Kaunas on the fourth and last day of the beauty fair: "Moters pasaulis". 71 Girls, 1 to 30 years old, and most of them with hair probably never touched by scissors, gathered together in the small amfitheater inside the arena. A contest that was mainly attended by the girls' parents, photographers, and some curious passers-by who were strolling around the fair and stopped to have a closer look. Broadly the same as last years' contest, the show consisted of measuring loose and braided hair, models showing the latest fashion on the catwalk and an award ceremony where all girls received their diploma's and compliments from the jury.

Highlights of this show were some girls having longer than knee length tresses. Three of them broke the hair record in their age category and this was officially added to the Lithuanian Book of Records. The proud contestants not only presented their abundant manes, but also showed their best outfits like sophisticated long dresses, national folk costumes or rather more casual clothing. When you take a look at the pictures in the gallery, also pay some attention to the talented catwalk models from the Lithuanian agency "Modeliai.lt" with rather short hair, but dressed in new collections of fabulous fashion clothing.


There was practically never a dull moment, despite of the fact that it took a few hours before all the girls got their hair measured and I wasn't able to understand a single Lithuanian word of what was being said. But I was grateful for being invited by Modeliai.lt and had a good time capturing this nice annual event. You can read more about the winners and their hair lengths in this article.
