Lidia Roman (born 1976) lives in a small village near Gherla. When Lidia joined a TV competition for the longest hair in Romania in October 2008, she won easiely with her floor-length mane. Her hair measures 165 cm (65 inches) in length and weighs 2,4 kilograms. For daily haircare she needs about 45 minutes, but washing and drying (2 hours) is hard work once or twice a week. Anyway she is very proud of her amazingly thick cloak of hair.
