Ilgakasė is the title of long hair contests held in Lithuania. This contest was in Ukmergė, a little town north of the capital Vilnius. The contest is located in a little theater.
This year, Ilgakasė in Ukmergė was again in the cultural centre of the town, but this time in a smaller hall. All passionate girls did their best to impress the jury and the audience, who were able to vote for their favourite girl. All home made costumes and hairstyles were shown at the second part of the show and they were quite original as one girl was wrapped up in a tutu dress made of folded newspapers and another contestant was wearing a dress made out of bubble foil. The first prize was traditionally a shiny new mountain bike, but I felt a bit sorry for the girl who won second prize and got a bunch of balloons.
