It's highly unlikely that the Grimm brothers were thinking about Hollywood trends when they penned Rapunzel back in the 19th century, but here we are. Granted, the title character was locked in a tower for a whopping 12 years (you miss a lot in over a decade), but she also had a small perk amide the isolation: that hair. Long, glamorous strands is basically a glam cheat code. Who needs to fill in their brows or slap on a red lip when they have all of that up top? Exactly.
It looks like Hollywood gets it, too, as stars like Tessa Thompson, Queen Latifah, and Kacey Musgraves all showed up to Oscars events this weekend with hair spilling well past their shoulders. We're talking feet, not inches. See the most outstanding, extra-long ponytails and braids from the 2019 Academy Awards and Vanity Fair Oscars Party, ahead.
