Petrenko is a Russian senator who drew national attention when she negotiated with four kidnappers to release child hostages in Rostov-on-Don in 1993.

Social media has been buzzing about her this week for a much different reason.

Her hair.

Not in a meanspirited way, but more a “How is this even possible?”, “Was my coffee laced with something?”, “Is life really but a dream?” sort of tone.

Take a look:

In 2015, she was asked about her signature locks in an interview with Echo of Moscow.

She said:

Well, that settles that.
