Why is Hamza Yassin’s hair so long?

Hamza Yassin’s hair flows done his waist and to below his knee caps.

Since Strictly 2022 started, fans have wondered why he chooses to have it so long.

The TV star has now revealed he started growing it 17 years ago to “rebel” against his parents who wanted him to cut it short.

Speaking on This Morning he said “I remember, my mum used to sit me down, me, my brother and my dad, and just give us the number two the whole time.

“Then I just rebelled one year, I’m like, ‘I’m done’. And that was it!”

The Strictly star certainly made the right decision, as fans and judges alike have been paying compliments to Hamza’s hair since the start of the 2022 series.

Hamza went on to reveal his flowing locks have become part of his dance routine.

“Yeah! It’s kind of like Jowita’s dress, so we kinda try and include it,” he joked.

“If the dress is flowing, let my hair flow as well!”
