About 30 years ago potter Chez Galip opened The Hair Museum in Avanos, Cappadocia in Turkey. According to Oddity Central, Galip opened the museum after a departing friend left him a piece of her hair. The museum, located below Galip’s shop, is home to thousands of locks of hair that women have left over the years.
I saw the pictures first on BuzzFeed and when doing an Internet search discovered, that while this hair museum sadly has no site, there is a site for Leila’s Hair Museum in Independence, Missouri. Leila’s museum is a collection of wreaths and jewelry all made from hair.
