Most contests are local events only announced in the language of the country they are held in. Rapunzels Today promotes them to a broader international audience, because they deserve more attention from modelling agencies, fashion magazines and hair stylists. Rapunzels Today's aim is not only to show the longest hair possible, but is showcasing a variety of hairstyles, local fashion, original or traditional (often home-made) clothing and folk customes and gives you a fascinating glimpse into a country's culture.
Long hair contests are not only competitions where the person with the longest hair wins. In a broader perspective, long hair contests are fashion and talent shows preserving the tradition of wearing long hair. Prizes will often be given to the participant with the thickest hair, the best performance or the audience favourite. The organization always makes sure that every contestant returns home satisfied, mostly with lots of presents from the sponsors.
The dull and uninspiring short hair styles that influenced parts of the world where long hair is part of their culture like Russia and Eastern Europe, makes clear that these events are necessary. These contests really make a huge difference, as they are a great source of inspiration and encouragement for every girl or woman who wants to grow her hair to a fairytale length!
