A young man who grew his hair for seven years has been dubbed the "male Rapunzel".

一位留了七年长发的青年被戏称为“男版长发公主”。

Cristiano Braga, 28, regularly maintains his luscious locks with natural oils, such as aloe vera, avocado, camomile, mint and rosemary, and says women often expressed their envy.

28岁的克里斯蒂亚诺·布拉加(Cristiano Braga)经常用芦荟、鳄梨、甘菊、薄荷和迷迭香等天然植物油来保养他那柔顺的秀发,他说连女人们也经常对他这一头长卷发表示羡慕。

But Cristiano has also been bullied by jealous and even accused of wanting to "turn" women's sexualities.

但克里斯蒂亚诺也曾因他人的嫉妒而被人欺负,甚至被人指责他这是想要“转性”成女人。

"There was a time, as my hair grew, I was quite criticised; people called me a woman, broom hair, scarecrow, they would cut my hair, they said I was ugly, weird.

“有一段时间,随着我的头发越来越长,我遭受到了很多的批评;人们叫我女人、扫帚头、稻草人,他们会剪我的头发,骂我长得很丑,说我是怪人。”

"I get a lot more questions now; the strangest question I got was if I wore a wig, because my hair glowed a lot.

“我现在收到了更多的提问;被问到的最奇怪的问题是我是否戴了假发,因为我的头发常发亮。”



"Whenever someone approaches me on the street, I get a little embarrassed, because the person always draws the attention of others to me, and although it does not seem like it, I do not like to expose myself much," the proud model, from Minas Gerais, Brazil, said today.

这位来自巴西米纳斯吉拉斯的骄傲模特如是说道,“每当有人在街上靠近我,我都会感到有点尴尬,因为那人总会将别人的目光引至我身上,虽然我看上去不像是这样的人,但我本身其实不喜欢太显眼。”

The man, who began starting growing his hair in 2012 for "no real reason", says he is often called Jesus, John Lennon, Jared Leto, Axle Rose, Ariel, Merida, Little Mermaid and Rapunzel, among other personalities and characters.

这名从2012年开始留长发的男子表示他“留长发并没有特别的理由”,称他经常被别人戏称为耶稣、约翰·列侬、杰瑞德·莱托、艾克索·罗斯、阿里尔、梅莉达公主、小美人鱼和长发公主,或者其他人物和角色。

He continued: "Prejudice is something very present in our society and must be fought.

他继续说道:“偏见在我们的社会中是一直存在的,我们必须和它斗争。”

"I get really shocked when someone says that my hair is better than theirs because it demonstrates how low a person's self-esteem is and needs to be worked on.

“我真的很惊讶听到别人说我的头发比他们的好,因为这体现了他们的自尊心是多么的低,需要加以增强成为一个更好的人。”





"It makes me very sad when they ask me if I want to 'turn' women because I have long hair, it shows that society does not accept what is different from the patterns.

“当他们因为我头发长而问我是不是想‘变性’成女人时,我真的很难过,这表明这个社会不接受与传统大众不同的类型。”

"An interesting case was a group of deaf people who approached me using sign language to ask me if I was from a band, they thought I was famous, or something.

“发生过个有意思的事,当时有群聋哑人用手语问我是不是玩乐队的,他们以为我是个明星名人什么的。”

"They even took pictures of me. I even find that many people take pictures of my hair without me knowing."

“他们还给我拍照。我甚至发现有很多人在我不知情的情况下偷拍我的头发。”

Nevertheless, Cristiano believes his hair has made him more confident and stronger. He's even asked his agent to keep his hair this length for his acting career.

尽管如此,克里斯蒂亚诺坚信他的头发令他更自信强大。他甚至恳求其经纪人为了他今后的演艺生涯允许他留这么长的头发。

"I always found long hair beautiful both in women and men, I do not know why, I thought it was incredible that we all have hair the way we want it," he added.

他补充说道:”我一直觉得女人和男人留长头发都很漂亮,我不知道自己为什么会这么想,若每个人都能随其心留自己喜欢的发型(世界)该是多么妙不可言啊。”

"Having long hair is an incredible experience, for me, hair has taught me to value myself, to have more confidence, to respect me and to make me respected and especially to not care about the opinions and criticism of others.

“留长头发是次难以置信的经历,对我来说,头发让我更加珍视自己、更自信、更自重和更受到他人的尊重,特别是让我不再关心在意别人的看法和指责。”



"Life passes by very fast for us to live our lives according to others, so we must live for ourselves and as we wish.

“人生如白驹过隙,与其让我们按照别人的生活方式去生活,还不如照我们所想所希望的那样去生活。”

"Now, many find it cool, and use my hair as inspiration to let their hair grow. Others who are more normative, find it strange for a man to have great hair.

“现在,很多人觉得这很酷,说他们留长发的灵感来源于我的头发。但是那些比较中规中矩的其他人还是会觉得留着长发的男人挺奇怪的。”

"Have patience; hair takes its time to grow and people will criticise you, so do not get discouraged, do what you want, the hair is yours, life is yours, enjoy your way, be happy."

“要有耐心;头发需要时间才能长出来,人们会批评你,所以不要灰心。做你想做的,头发是你的,生活也是你的。享受你的生活方式,要幸福快乐。“
