When we think of super long eyelashes, we usually picture glam extensions — the kind you’d wear to a fancy dinner party or on your wedding day. We envision doe-eyes and thick lashes that frame your eyes like so:

Or dramatic falsies that complete your look, like this:

So when someone told us about the Guinness World Record for longest lashes, we didn’t quite expect to see anything like the ones growing out of You Jianxia’s eyelids.

The 49 year old’s eyelashes are a whopping 12.4cm long. That’s almost 5 inches of hair.

According to the Independent, Jianxia credits her eyelash growth to an 18 month nature retreat she took in 2013.
