Back at the turn of the last century, women used to make art with their hair and it was considered really cool. They'd make a piece of jewelery out of hair and give it to someone they loved to remember them by. Also, they'd make art out of dead people's hair for remembrance. Mind you, they didn't have Michael's stocked full of wool.

I learned all this at Irving House in New West! If you ever get a chance to go there, do it, it's amazing.
