There are few stories that are as popular or cherished as Rapunzel. Who can forget the stunning princess with her beautiful, tower-long, golden hair? But what if I told you that Rapunzel is no longer a fairy tale and that there’s a family of them?

Enter Tere Lynn Svetlecich Russell, a 43-year-old mother of five who has three daughters. Together, with her daughters, they are known as the Rapunzels of Illinois. You’re probably wondering, “How long is that hair?” The mother’s, Tere Lynn, measures in at 74 inches (approx. 6’2″). Her eldest, Lynn, is the same length while the middle daughter, Cendalyn, measures in at 36 inches (3 feet), and the youngest, Chesney, measures in at 26.25 inches (2’2″).
