The 12-year-old Welsh schoolgirl is 4ft 11in tall with hair nearly at her knees.
Her mother, Barbara, spoke of the unique issues her daughter faces: ‘It may be beautiful but it can also be pretty deadly, she practices the martial art Choi Kwang Do, and to do that we have to put her hair in a plait.
‘The only problem is that when she spins, her hair whips round, and people have to move out of the way. It’s like a secret weapon.’
It takes the pupil at Amman Valley Comprehensive in Carmarthenshire an hour to wash her hair and another just to dry it.
