CHANGSHA — Zhu Qing 祝青, an expectant mother from a nearby town, made a difficult decision recently — to cut off the hair she’s grown for the last 13 years.

She chose to cut her hair both for practical reasons — washing and drying 1.3 meters (4 feet 3 inches) of hair takes a lot of time — and for traditional medical reasons — the belief that such long hair would deprive the baby of nutrition and strength.

She began growing out her hair at 14, after reading Chinese romances in which the heroines only cut their hair upon marriage.

Zhu and her husband went to a hair salon in Changsha to get hair cut short. As this photo below shows, her feelings were definitely mixed.

In a few minutes, 4 feet of hair is gone.
