Sue Gets Her First Haircut in 22 Years

Aired on 05/20/1999 | CC tv-pg
It's been more than two decades since 42-year-old Sue has cut her hair. Measuring 56 inches long, it takes a whopping 7.5 hours to dry and nearly touches the floor.

Sue's sister says her long hair literally weighs on her shoulders. "She never wears it down because it gives her headaches," she says. "And she always wears it in a bun which makes her look 15 years older."

After 22 years of growing her locks, this isn't just a haircut. Watch as Sue goes through a major—and emotional—transformation.
